    All of the reports and or highlihgts Ive seen are lowlights for Jackson thus far in camp - Getting beaten by Rookie UDFA's and guy's who were on the practice squad last season ....

    Those of you who have been at the practices - What have you seen?

    He is going to be one of those CBs that takes years to develop NFL skills, if he ever does at all. That footwork is straight up terrible.

    Most NFL-ready corner from his draft class. :wadepalm:

    So between Miami rookie Harris and vet Allen, which one starts for us 9/11 instead of KJ ? Got to be one of those 2 if not KJ, right ?

    I have to believe Allen. From what I have been reading, he is having a decent camp, and although he isn't great he's not going to constantly embarass you either like KJ. Harris will probably be in nickel or dime packages as a rookie and then they can see how he is progressing. If he is making major strides he can always take over later this year, but I don't think we want to throw another rookie CB to the wolves from day one.

    If Harris has a good pre-season, I would be ok with him opposite Joseph with Manning backing him up to see how he does. I want best player out there & it could be Harris over Allen by game one.

    I would much rather have Quinn at #2 CB and Nolan at safety. I like a lineup of Joseph/Quinn/Nolan/Manning.

    I think Nolan has to beat out Barber or a CB transfer to make roster. I think it will be Manning, Quin, Keo and ? The last spot could be a CB like KJ, McMannis, Allen,etc.

    I want to see Kareem in a game first, but I don't think he's the starter when the season begins.

    I'm thinking Jason Allen with Brandon Harris in the slot.

    I just dont see how you can put Kareem out there at this point, but maybe in a game situation the light will come on.

    I don't see them keeping a guy that has mostly been at corner for us over a guy who is a straight up safety.

    And Kareem is not going to safety any time soon.

    I do not see Nolan getting cut.

    I can't imagine him not beating out barber. I don't see how barber is still on the team. I will be stunned if barber makes the final roster.

    It's embarrassing how Kareem is getting burned by everybody out there. SHould have drafted McCourty or Wilson. I had faith in KJ, but so far, it looks like he hasn't gotten any better. He still falls down (but at least he gets up, lmao), he is slow (that won't change) and he has bad technique (can be worked on).

    Outside of encouraging remarks from his position coach, I haven't read anything from another source citing improvement by KJ.
