Alabama’s Kareem Jackson jumps into starting role

Former Alabama Crimson Tide football player Kareem Jackson has turned heads in workouts for the Houston Texans. From the Associated Press, “He’s been very impressive. He jumps in there like he belongs. We’ve got a long way to go, but I like his size,” Kubiak said of Jackson, who is the same height as Robinson but almost 15 pounds heavier. “He’s got good size and strength, very well coached.” …”When you see players come out of schools like that they’re usually not very overwhelmed,” Kubiak said. “That’s the type of guys they’ve been covering all the time. (We’ll) get Andre in here to get him going too.”

Jackson started each game last season for Alabama and finished with 49 tackles. He appeared in all 41 games in his three-year career with the Crimson Tide and finished with 159 career tackles and had 29 pass deflections. (read more from the AP below)
