  • Kareem Jackson Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

  • Good size and body frame
  • Three-year starter
  • 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
  • Fluid hips
  • Very confident
  • 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
  • Somewhat inconsistent
  • 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.
