2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Tyson Jackson Profile
Strengths: Nice height and strength ... Consistent production ... Athletic enough to beat and pursue ... Strong at the point of attack ... Displays a great rip move ... Gets low, uses hands well on bull rush ... Disciplined player who plays within the scheme; does not get out of control or take himself out of the play ... Gets hands up and bats down passes ... Anchor against the run ... Draws double teams occasionally ... Versatile as a 4-3 left defensive end, or an athletic 5-technique.
Weaknesses: Does not get much explosion off the snap ... Sometimes gets too high ... Did not play his best in big games ... Does not show much range ... Questionable instincts ... Needs to have more of a motor ... Does not present a high upside.
Summary: Jackson is a talented player, but he leaves some effort on the field and that worries me. He could go to a team lacking a powerful left defensive end, or to a team looking for a 5-technique to anchor the run. Like most, I have mixed views on Jackson as a prospect, and that puts him in the very low first round to second round.
Player Comparison: Ty Warren. Warren is a tough 5-technique for the Patriots, but not much of a pass rusher. Jackson loses some pass rush ability in the 3-4 scheme, but it all depends on how he is utilized, like Warren.
Ik a lot of people are saying the 49ers will take a qb, but there is no way we should take one right there. He will just be unsuccessful. I really like solomon Thomas and i think he would be a great pick.Right now he doesnt seem like the #2 pick but his stock is going to continue to rise. Hopefully we can trade down a few picks and pick him and select a qb in next years loaded class. If we arent able to land thomas i wouldnt mind going mike williams or corey davis
DARRAIN WINSTON (Baker Kansas)? Should look at him. Had 54 tackles 2 TFL 10 INT 21 PBU 2 FF & 2 FR. How are you missing all these players at all these different positions? There's so many players at so many positions that you miss. Only way you seem to notice them is if we point them out.
