2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Steven Jackson, FS, Ohio

It took safety Steven Jackson a couple of years to work his way into a consistent role at Ohio. During his freshman campaign, he made two starts and performed well during that time, but made his biggest impact on special teams. His sophomore season was pretty much the same and he only recorded 25 tackles. It was in 2008 when Jackson began turning some heads. He started all 11 games he played in and totaled 71 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and four pass break-ups. For his efforts he was named to the third-team All-MAC squad. That led to higher expectations heading into 2009, and initially Jackson lived up to those expectations by tallying 24 tackles, 1.5 tackles-for-loss and one interception in his first four games of the season. However, he then suffered a hip injury that sidelined him for the remainder of his senior season. The injury to Jackson has kept him off the NFL radar and at this point he is nothing more than a late round pick. He will have to prove to scouts that he is healthy, but he still only had one productive season in college and it will be difficult for him to move high up anybody's draft board.
