  • Denver already in possession of speedy DE???

    From: http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_3506351

    High on Jackson:

    The Broncos are likely to search for a speedy pass rusher in the offseason, but it is an expensive position in free agency and it's a difficult talent to find in the draft.

    Some members of the organization believe the Broncos already possess a potential standout speedy rusher in Corey Jackson, who spent last season on the practice squad.

    Jackson, who played sparingly in college, was a star in NFL Europe and improved steadily last season. At 6-feet-7, 260 pounds, Jackson has a chance to develop quickly.

    "He can be a difference-maker," Denver Pro Bowl linebacker Al Wilson said. "I really think that. He can be special. He's a guy who can fill a role for us."

    90 Corey Jackson, Defensive End

    Height: 6' 8"
    Weight: 265 lbs.
    College: Nevada
    Born: in Cassatt, S.C.
    Acquired: Free Agent, 2005
    Pro Year: 2nd
    Year with Broncos: 1st
    NFL Games Played/Started: 1/0
    Postseason: 0/0

    Jackson (6-6, 265 pounds) is a second-year defensive end who saw his only career NFL game action in 2004, making one tackle in one game for Cleveland. The 26-year-old, who was waived by Cleveland on Aug. 29, was named NFL Europe’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 with the Frankfurt Galaxy after spending time on Cleveland’s practice squad as a rookie. Jackson entered the NFL in 2003 with the Browns as an undrafted free agent from the University of Nevada, where he walked-on to the football team as a senior after playing basketball for the school.

      6'7, get this guy on the field in pre-season and really work his backside off. If Al Wilson endorses him then its worth really giving him a go. Players can only learn so much on the practise squad and sitting on a bench.
      "On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."

          Only time will tell, and that's a position of major concern this offseason. If Shanny put him on the PS then he seen something he liked, so let's hope he develops and gives the D_line some much needed help. Who knows maybe he'll pull a Rod Smith and shatter all the Broncos DE records.

              jsut did a little reasearch on the guy...to find his 40 time and stuff and college stats...and


              He was a stud in NFLE

              Frankfurt's standout defensive end Corey Jackson has plenty of shoulders to lean on. That's what teamwork is all about. The only thing is that the Galaxy have been riding on Jackson's shoulders all season.
              He is the sackmaster and the run stopper, so now the 2004 NFL Europe Defensive MVP
              my question now, is how long is the NFL europe season, becuase he had 9.5 sacks in how ever long there season is.....

                People are going to belittle his accomplishment, but being Defensive MVP is pretty special... regardless...

                And looks like 11 games including the World Bowl.

                  It's an accomplishment being the NFLE Defensive MVP, but it's not that big of a deal. Chiefs MLB Rich Scanlon was the 2005 NFLE Defensive MVP, yet he had no impact whatsoever in 2005 with the Chiefs.

                  It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

                    As already stated here, he was MVP in '05, and was on our practice squad last season, that doesn't mean there isn't some skill and ability there.

                      Practice Squad has helped

                      Several important players have come to the Broncos via the practice squad: Rod Smith, Matt Lepsis, and Ben Hamilton, to name a few. With the invention of NFL Europe, all the better to see the player in competition and make decisions of their worth.

                        Yes, he may have talent. And yes, he may have potential...

                        But, it would be insane to blow off defensive line needs because we've got a "hotshot" PS player...

                          It is because you have Gunther Cunningham.

                            Even if the "hotshot" player became a star, too many DEs certainly are better than not enough.
                            Moreover, we would end up with trade bait many other teams would die for.
                            So it would be better not to take chances, as you implied.

                              Hopefully Shanny will do what he did in the 05 draft with corners this year, but with D ends - pick three with the first three picks. God knows, we need them, and I like the probability that one will be a stud if we pick 3.
