2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 23

Rd. # Player Pos. College
1 23 Kareem Jackson
CB
Alabama
General Manager: Gyorick

With the 23rd pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Green Bay Packers select Alabama cornerback Kareem Jackson.

Here is Gyorick's reasoning for the pick:

The Green Bay Packers could use help with the OT, CB, OLB, and S positions. The OT position had a terrible start to the season in 2009. The Packers gave up 51 sacks for the year and I believe the first 7-8 weeks they had given up 40 or 41 sacks. Then Tauscher and Clifton returned from injury and allowed 10 or so sacks for the rest of the season. Clifton is 32 years old and Tauscher is 33. The Packers need depth at the tackle position but I think that they can get the same value of a tackle in the second round as they can with this pick. Outside linebacker is also a need with the Packers after letting Kampman go this offseason. With Graham, Weatherspoon and Kindle off the board, I think it would be a slight reach to take to Jerry Hughes with the 23rd pick. The drop off at safety after Berry, Mays, and Thomas leaves me with no other choice than to draft a CB.
 
Kareem Jackson... 5'10", 196 lbs., and he ran a 4.48 forty at the combine. He is great with press man coverages. He has fluid hips when back-pedaling and changing direction. I think he would be great to fit in the system and eventually take over for the injured Al Harris or aging Charles Woodson.
