  • Some Steven Jackson info. I was board

    From: NFL: 2004 Draft Profiles


    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.

    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).

    From Sports Illustrated: 2004 NFL Draft Prospects

    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


    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.

            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.

                        2019 Draft: With 70th pick, Rams select DARRELL HENDERSON, RB, MEMPHIS
                        by Nick
                        Player Bio
                        Henderson became one of the top college running backs by the time he finished his three-year career with the Tigers. He was an Associated Press first-team All-American in 2018, finishing second in the country with 1,909 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on only 214 carries (8.9 average). The first-team All-American Athletic Conference performer also caught 19 passes for 295 yards (15.5 average) and three touchdowns in 13 starts (he sat out the team's bowl game to focus on the draft). Henderson also missed the team's 2017 bowl game due to injury but played in 13 games that year (10 starts) and led Memphis with 1,154 yards and nine touchdowns on just 130 carries (8.9 average) to garner second-team all-conference accolades. The 2014 Mississippi Gatorade High School Player of the Year (2,253 yards, 32 TD) played in all 13 games with six starts as a true freshman (87-482-5.5, five TD rushing; 20-237-11.9, three TD receiving). He also returned 25 kickoffs for 487 yards (19.5 average) and a score during his career.

                        NFL Comparison: Tevin Coleman

                        He checks in slightly undersized, doesn't have great vision and runs with a narrow base that makes him easier to tackle, but so far, those concerns haven't slowed him one bit. Big-play production is impossible to ignore, but his running style makes him best-suited to a complementary slasher role in a spread-based attack. In basketball, Henderson would be the explosive sixth man with the ability to swing certain games in your favor if he catches fire. On the ground or out of the backfield, Henderson can catch fire.

                        Home-run hitter doesn't begin to describe his explosive production
                        Averaged 8.9 yards per carry over last 344 attempts
                        Movement has electric feel to it
                        Quick acceleration turns to get-away long speed
                        43 carries of 15-plus yards and 11 total touchdowns of 54-plus in 2018 alone
                        Unusual contact balance for narrow-base runner
                        Keeps feet moving at all times
                        Hits and spins out of contact
                        More physical than expected as run finisher
                        Used on drop-offs and screens out of backfield
                        Maintains potency as a pass catcher
                        Shows ability to track and adjust down the field

                        Comes in a little smaller than desired for an early down back
                        Upright running style with narrow base
                        Needs to get better at slipping solid contact
                        Displays some hip tightness and is a one-track runner
                        Plays too fast to effectively stack moves
                        High center of gravity forces turn rather than cuts
                        Faced light numbers in the box
                        Touchdown runs happening in wide-open spaces
                        Sees what is there rather than what is developing
                        May not offer pass protection value on third down

                        Jackson has thrived when getting 20-plus carries

                        By Len Pasquarelli

                        Born and raised in Las Vegas, where both his parents worked in casinos, Steven Jackson realizes the unique relationship between numbers and odds.

                        OK, so the St. Louis Rams' third-year tailback might not be the guy you want advising you at the blackjack table, as you're agonizing over whether to take another hit while holding 16, and his head usually spins over all of the confusing permutations of the roulette wheel. The fact is, if Jackson is down $100, he pretty much considers himself tapped out and heads home for the evening.

                        But here's a winning parlay he understands well after only two NFL seasons: Give Jackson 20 carries, he'll get 100 yards, and the odds are pretty solid that the Rams will win.

                        "I know what they're telling me in terms of how many carries they say I'm going to get. But I've heard those kinds of things before. I even went to [running backs coach] Wayne Moses the other day and told him, 'Now don't be teasing me. Don't be telling me what you think I want to hear just to pacify me.' "
                        Steven Jackson
                        "Now those are numbers," said Jackson, the Rams' first-round choice in the 2004 draft, "that are like magic numbers to me. Even I'd bet on those. And I'm not a very big gambler. I can't run with guys like [Charles] Barkley and that crowd. But, yeah, I know that those [represent] some winning numbers."

                        Five times in his still fledgling NFL career, Jackson has logged 20 or more rushing attempts in a game. The results in those contests: an average of 130.6 yards per outing, 5.4 yards per carry, and five victories for the Rams. Of the team's six wins in 2005, half came in games in which Jackson was the offensive workhorse. Only once in the five contests in which Jackson got 20 carries did he fail to crack the 100-yard mark. Twice in those games, he had more than 145 yards, including a career-best 179 against Jacksonville on Oct. 30.

                        Roll the dice with Jackson, a big back (6-foot-2, 231 pounds) with quick feet and nifty moves, and the odds are pretty good you won't crap out, as his brief league history indicates. And if offseason rhetoric emanating from first-year coach Scott Linehan means anything, the St. Louis offense expects to roll a whole lot of 7's with its starting tailback in 2006.

                        Which is sweet music to the ears of Jackson, who often chafed in the past at the lack of carries he got under former coach Mike Martz, dismissed after a 2006 season in which he missed much of the season because of a bout with endocarditis, an inflammation of a heart valve. In 14 of 29 appearances in 2004-2005, Jackson had 10 carries or less, in part because of the...

                        Burwell: Time for Rams to unleash the beast
                        by MauiRam
                        By Bryan Burwell Sunday, September 19, 2010 12:15 am

                        OAKLAND, Calif. Steve Spagnuolo's coaching DNA comes off the old Bill Parcells strain, an old-school football philosophy that emphasizes nasty, aggressive defense and an offensive style that relies on smart veterans, hands-in-the-dirt power and clock-gobbling ground control.

                        So imagine the culture shock that must have occurred in his head last week when he not only put his offense in the hands of a rookie quarterback, but condoned a game plan that involved a lopsided pass/run distribution of 57-to-24. Okay, we know circumstances forced the Rams to be a bit more pass happy than what normally suits Spagnuolo's tastes. But the most surprising aspect of the way things worked for his offense was that Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson was particularly ignored for most of the first half.

                        Two carries in the first quarter?

                        Eight in the first half?

                        That has to change, doesn't it?

                        Please tell me that's going to change.

                        I am as guilty as most of us of an incurable Sam Bradford obsession. Heck, I am the drum major in his parade. But as good as the kid has shown he can be, and as good an NFL quarterback as we know he will ultimately turn into, the rookie needs a lot of things going the right way if he's going to make this offense work smoothly. One of those things the most important thing is a highly productive Jackson.

                        When the Rams face the Oakland Raiders Sunday afternoon inside rowdy Oakland-Alemeda Coliseum, the game plan needs to tilt back a bit towards a more balanced run/pass ratio. Jackson needs to be the focus of this offense.

                        Every week the Rams play, I am always amazed at the comments I get from smart NFL folks who get an up-close eye full of Jackson's raging running style. A few weeks ago after the Patriots preseason game, I ran into Chris Long's dad, the legendary Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long, and when the conversation rolled around to Jackson, Howie had a familiar reaction.

                        "Oh man, he's a beast," he gushed. "I love watching that guy run with the football."

                        It's amazing how much greater the appreciation for Jackson's unique gifts seem to be outside St. Louis. Knowledgeable football wise guys speak of him in almost reverent terms because of his size and speed and his almost freakishly powerful running style. And I guess unless you have seen Jackson's raw energy up close from an NFL sideline, even the TV replays don't adequately translate what he is doing out there.

                        Jackson is a difference maker on this Rams offense, but the plays have to be called to take advantage of his talent. Throughout his career, he has proven that the longer you feed him the stronger he gets.

                        I charted his entire career and it's fascinating to see what happens when he is given the ball. Look...

                        #4b 2008 NFL DRAFT RAMS PICK (Round 4, 128th overall): Keenan Burton, WR, Kentucky
                        by Nick

                        When Keenan Burton was out of the lineup with assorted injuries -- knee, foot and ankle -- during his career, the Wildcats were a different team.

                        Back from injury, Burton had a banner junior season. Burton became just the third player in school history to gain over 1,000 yards receiving in a season (1,036) in 2006 and is also the third Wildcat to ever amass over 2,000 receiving yards in a career. His 12 touchdown receptions in 2006 rank second on the school's single-season record list. He also set another Kentucky record by catching at least two touchdown passes in four consecutive games (Mississippi State, Georgia, Vanderbilt and Louisiana-Monroe).

                        At DuPont Manual High School, Burton excelled as a quarterback and safety. He earned first-team All-State from the Associated Press and the Louisville Courier-Journal and was named to the Lexington Herald-Leader "Class of the Commonwealth" listing of the top-22 seniors in the state during his senior year. He was the sixth-ranked prospect in Kentucky by Super Prep, ranking fifth in the state and among the nation's top fifty defensive backs, according to and Prep Star. He also added All-County and All-District honors as a junior and senior.

                        The MVP of the Kentucky/Tennessee HS All-Star Game in the summer of 2003, Burton helped his school reach the Class AAAA state playoffs four consecutive seasons. He started the last three of his four seasons with the team, lining up mostly at quarterback on offense, although he did see some action as a receiver, running back, and kick returner.

                        Burton carried the ball 274 times for 1,634 yards (6.0-yard average) and 25 touchdowns during his career. He completed 81 of 226 passes (35.8%) for 1,605 yards and 17 scores. He also recorded 98 tackles, along with 30 pass deflections and 10 interceptions, returning two of those picks for touchdowns, adding another score on a punt return. "Keenan has the quickest first step I've seen in a long time," said Manual High coach Joe Nichols. "He has really deceptive speed and great hands."

                        Burton also lettered in track, competing in the 400- and 800-meter dashes, 4x200-, 4x400-, and 4x800-meter relays, the long jump, and the triple-jump. He competed in the state meet in all three relays and both jumps. He was a member of the school's student council and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

                        Burton enrolled at Kentucky in 2003, turning down scholarship offers from Northwestern, Indiana, Marshall, Louisville, Miami (Ohio) and Boston College. The son of former Morehead State football and track participant, Ed Burton, Keenan Burton earned Knoxville News-Sentinel Freshman All-Southeastern Conference honors that season. In 12 games, he made five starts at split end. He ranked fifth on the team with 20 receptions for 221 yards (11.1-yard average) and a pair of touchdowns, with 11 catches...

                        Earlier in the year, the Rams running back disclosed that he'd set two personal-yardage targets for this third NFL season. He wouldn't divulge them then, but he pledged to at the end of the year.

                        After Sunday's 41-21 win at Minnesota, Jackson revealed that those numbers were 2,000 and 1,600 as in 2,000 total yards from scrimmage and 1,600 yards rushing.

                        "You shoot for the moon, and you never know what will happen," Jackson said. "I just came up a little shy."

                        With a strong push 545 yards in the last three games, all Rams victories Jackson surged ahead of San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson and wound up No. 1 in the NFL in yards from scrimmage. Jackson finished with 2,334 yards to Tomlinson's 2,323.

                        Jackson's 1,528 rushing yards ranked him fifth in the league; Tomlinson was the leader, with 1,815.

                        Although Jackson didn't come close to matching Tomlinson's record-breaking touchdown total (31), he did score seven times in the final three games and wound up with 16 TDs. Only Tomlinson and Kansas City running back Larry Johnson (19) found the end zone more often.

                        "Steven backed up his commitment to having a great year and has taken his game to another level," coach Scott Linehan said. "He made improvement unlike anyone else in the league, in my opinion, from where he was going into the year to where he is now."

                        At first glance, Jackson's preseason goals might have seemed ambitious. They required a significant upgrade over his previous highs 1,366 total yards and 1,046 rushing yards, both achieved in 2005, his first season as the team's primary ballcarrier.

                        But after getting 297 touches 254 carries and 43 catches in '05, Jackson was called on 436 times this year, with 346 carries and 90 catches. Overall, the Rams advanced 5.4 yards every time the 6-foot-2, 231-pound Oregon State product, a first-round draft pick in 2004, had the ball in his hands.

                        A breakdown of Jackson's carries indicates that he consistently wore down defenses. His overall average per attempt was 4.4 yards, but he averaged nearly a yard more on carries 20 through 33 (his season high).

                        "It was just a matter of allowing me to be comfortable and do what I'm used to doing," Jackson said. "I knew that given the opportunity to touch the ball 20 to 25 times a game, I'd be able to (emerge), and I think I've proven so."

                        Jackson stressed that Linehan deserved credit for keeping his word to balance...
