Texans adresss CB first
Who??????? Why not Kyle Wilson?
Kareem Jackson Scouting Report
By Matt McGuire
Good size and body frame
Smooth athlete with nice change of direction
Comfortable in press and off-man
Mirrors receivers well
Above average speed
Underrated ball skills
Terrific at anticipating short routes
Smart and instinctive
Competitive and fearless
Very well coached
Displays great awareness of route recognition
Polished and does the little things
Tough in red zone
Struggles to get off blocks
Not a very physical hitter
Only two interceptions as a sophomore and junior
Gets a little lazy with tackling technique
Needs to use hands better at the line of scrimmage
Summary: Jackson is a talented prospect with the tape to back him up, but he doesn't have first-round tape and is a liability against the run. Jackson has an impressive skill set overall and will be drafted anywhere from late first round to late second round.
Player Comparison: Marcus Trufant. Jackson isn't as consistent as Trufant, but he does have the skill set to be a very good corner.
Good pick. I guess they had him rated higher than Wilson and McCourty
Solid enough pick. I had Wilson rated a bit higher, but Jackson over McCourty. I will take this pick. I give it a solid B.
I kind of don't like this pick :/
Believe we picked Jackson over Wilson because of the conference he played in.
as mention in the draft thread - proven player at the highest level in college, safe solid pick. i like it.
The Texans know more than we do, they employ and pay an entire scouting department to sit around and evaluate these guys.
I'll take you guy's word for it. I have no idea who he is (I'm not a big college ball guy, so I don't know who the prospects are). Hopefully he'll be solid contributor right off the bat and live up to being a 1st round pick.
I don't know much about this CB, but LZ was talking him up acouple days before the draft. I'm just glad we didn't draft a P-Burnt clone in Kyle Wilson.
Jackson on 610 right now.
Said he talked to the Texans at the combine but was still surprised they drafted him. looks forward to coming in and working hard and doing anything for the organization. sounded confident.
All I can say... A very very safe pick.. Not A lot of upside but he is pro-ready.
Our previous pick for a defensive player from Alabama turned out okay.
I agree he is from the AFC South of College football..solid pick.
I wonder if we can trade up and get Wilson....hmmmmm
Word. Hopefully we can strike gold by drafting another defensive player from Bama...we all remember what happened with the last one.
the offensive one hasn't been total suck either.
Where can I buy my Kareem Jackson jersey! Bleeding Crimson Tide red has got to be good for spurning NFL defensive players.
Welcome to Houston, Kareem!
Oh, and I love the guy's name.
I can just imagine the opening game now, "Kareeeem the Dreeeeam with another inception against Peyton Manning, sealing the gam in last two-minutes of regulation!"
I think with Jackson, Quin and Pollard we have the most physical secondary in the NFL.
