1 9 Tyson Jackson DE LSU
General Manager: JazzyBBP

With the ninth pick of the 2009 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Green Bay Packers select LSU defensive end Tyson Jackson.

Here is JazzyBBP's reasoning for the pick:

The Packers are switching to a base 3-4 defense, kicking Aaron Kampman to OLB. Jackson is a BIG, powerful DE who will keep blockers off of Kampman as well as the other LBs, allowing them to create havoc. He is an instant upgrade over current starters Cullen Jenkins and Johnny Jolly. Jackson could also kick over to DT on special 4-3 defensive packages, allowing Kampman to play his natural position in certain situations when called for. Green Bay will revamp their defense by starting up front.
 

I thought about getting OT, but with Andre Smith having character issues and Oher being a reach at #9, I felt this would be the best pick at this time.
