Draft 2010

Pick No.20

Selected By: Houston Texans

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 20 (20)

Pick Analysis: Jackson has an excellent combination of size and athleticism for the position. He is a very confident defender that will play tight to his opponent in both man and zone coverage schemes. Jackson shows great foot quickness burst and speed to stay with top receivers. He is an instinctive player that is quick to anticipate and jump routes as plays unfold. He is a competitive player but is inconsistent to as a run support defender. Jackson needs to rap up ball carriers better on the perimeter as well as corralling receivers in the open field. Kareem Jackson is an excellent football player that won?t last long on the first day of the 2010 draft if his shoulder checks out.
