    Some Steven Jackson info. I was board

    From: NFL: 2004 Draft Profiles
    http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/steven_jackson

    OVERVIEW

    Like most franchise backs, Jackson seems to thrive when allowed to carry the bulk of the offensive load The two-time All-American posted fantastic numbers in 2003 His career at OSU ended after three seasons, becoming the first Beaver player in history with eligibility remaining to enter the NFL Draft In 36 games, he carried 743 times for 3,625 yards (4.9 avg.) and 39 touchdowns while adding 680 yards and six scores on 66 catches (10.3 avg.) and 240 yards with a touchdown on seven kickoff returns (34.3 avg.) His 4,545 all-purpose yards rank second in school history behind Ken Simonton (5,606, 1998-2001) Also ranks second to Simonton (366) on the school's all-time scoring list with 276 points His 3,625 yards rushing rank 10th in Pac-10 Conference annals Ran for over 100 yards in 19 contests.

    ANALYSIS
    Positives: Has an athletic, highly chiseled body with good overall upper and lower body muscle development Shows an explosive burst off the snap to get up the holes and has the speed to accelerate to the second level and break away for a long run Displays above average balance as a runner, showing the change of direction agility to make the first tackler miss His outside speed and body control allows him to turn it up when racing around the corner Will slam it hard up the gut on inside runs, keeping his pad level low and shoulders squared while securely protecting the ball Despite his size, his hip swerve and quick twitch moves gets him through even the smallest of seams Very effective receiver on swings and screens, showing natural hands and body control to make adjustments on the ball Maintains concentration and has good upper body flexibility going for the pass at its high point (won't flinch when getting hit) Willing blocker who will face up to the defender, displaying a good leg base and anchor Keeps his shoulders square through the holes and has the elusive burst to move through the piles Not afraid to take on tacklers, displaying a strong stiff-arm that can rock the opponent back (one of the best stiff-arm techniques in college).

    Negatives: Has great initial speed, but can be brought down when defenses initiate contact in the backfield (needs room to gain acceleration) Good short area blocker, but does not always see the blitz develop and is not quick to locate linebackers when asked to block at the second level (needs better technique work to sustain) Patient and uses his blockers well, but despite his leg strength, he does go down a bit too much when trying to squeeze through the pile (looks frustrated working in close quarters, preferring to gain room to be more effective).

    AGILITY TESTS
    4.3 in the 40-yard dash (indoors) 4.45 in the 40-yard dash (outdoors) 10.6 100-meters 355-pound bench press 520-pound back squat 314-pound power clean 298-pound push press 38-inch vertical jump.

    -------------------------
    From Sports Illustrated: 2004 NFL Draft Prospects
    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo...ers/30735.html

    BIO:
    Two-year starter awarded multiple All-American and all-conference honors during both campaigns. Finished his junior season with 350/1,545/19 rushing, also catching 44/470/3. Sophomore totals were 319/1,690/15 on the ground and 17/165/1 as a pass-catcher. Has averaged 4.9 yards-per-carry on 743 rushing attempts the past three seasons.

    POSITIVES: Big, powerful ball handler with a variety of skills and abilities. Displays excellent vision and running instincts; patient, waits for blocks to develop then follows them at the line or down the field. Will pick and choose his spots, displays good footwork in a small area and weaves his way through the traffic, finding the open spots on the field. Sets up defenders, makes them miss and displays a good burst of speed. Runs with balance, adjusts off the initial hit and effective between tackles or cutting the corner on the outside. Punishing runner that moves the pile and wastes defenders as he plows over them. Looks like a runaway locomotive in the open field and does not go down without a fight. A legitimate receiving threat who runs well after the reception. Effective blocking for the passing game.

    NEGATIVES: Cannot run to daylight and lacks the great acceleration in the open field. Would not be considered an elusive or explosive back.

    ANALYSIS: An all-around running back that can be a workhorse carrying the ball, Jackson has all the skills to be a top ball handler at the next level. Has proven durability as well as productivity the past two seasons and combines power, speed and football intelligence. Terrific prospect for the next level.

    PROJECTION: Early First Round

    ------------------------
    about.com
    http://football.about.com/cs/playerp...venjackson.htm

    Position: Running Back
    School: Oregon State
    Status: Junior
    Height: 6-2
    Weight: 233
    40-Yard Dash: 4.45

    Positives: Steven Jackson has good size (6-2, 230 pounds) yet is still elusiveness enough to make defenders miss. He has mid 4.4 speed in the 40 with a quick first step and a good burst through the hole. He has good balance and power, runs low to the ground, and isn't afraid to take on would-be tacklers. Picks up a lot of yards after initial contact.

    He catches the ball effectively out of the backfield. Uses the stiff arm very well and is a load to bring down once he gets through the line. Should be a workhorse back on the next level.

    Negatives: Running and catching the ball, Jackson is pretty well rounded, but he needs to work on his blocking skills if he wants to be a complete back at the next level. He also lacks explosive speed.

    Projection: In my opinion, Steven Jackson is the best all-around back in the draft and should be selected somewhere in the middle of the first round.


    Nothing important but its kind of interesting.

    Like most franchise backs, Jackson seems to thrive when allowed to carry the bulk of the offensive load …
    I would like to point that out to the new HC Scott Linehan.
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.

    Haha Hodgins I have to agree with you there. I kind of got angered when they did that but I kept my cool. My favorite 3rd and short play was quick slants though when holt and bruce run a slant and bulger hits them right away. Good play.
