Just did a quick google search... and wow was that a bad draft for Defensive Ends.
That draft pick never made sense to me by the Seahawks. I remember after the pick during the draft where ESPN was showing highlights to try and get people excited about the pick and every highlight was Sedrick Ellis being double teamed on USC's D-line and still getting push, with Jackson either running past an inferior OT untouched or ignored. I just had to scratch my head and go "I can see on his own highlight tape that there's some serious talent questions there, so why is he a first round pick?".
I guess Seattle was just desperate. I doubt they got much for him.
Yeah he had the physical skills but no moves or hand technique of any kind. Still would have liked to see him in a Justin Tuck-esque 4-3 DE/DT, Seahawks could probably have still used him. I guess Balmer's arrival ushered him out.
Send him... ...to Detroit!
Kentucky Fried Movie for the win.
Glad someone got that.
Was clearly a reach then, and proved it now.
When Griffen dropped down in the 2010 draft, I immediatly thought that teams would want to avoid the next L.Jackson.
They are reporting in Detroit that it was for a sixth round pick.
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
