Re-Drafting The Ridiculously Talented 2012 NFL Draft

28. Green Bay Packers: Malik Jackson — DT



Original Spot For Jackson: 137th Overall
Original 28th Pick: Nick Perry – LB

The Los Angeles native has proven to be a very versatile player thus far in his NFL career. Depending upon the scheme/situation, Jackson can perform in both a 3-4 and a 4-3 front. Jackson’s ability to line up anywhere along the defensive line offers his teams considerably flexibility. It also allows for him to play on virtually every single down.

After a solid four years in Denver, Jackson was handsomely rewarded with a large contract by the Jacksonville Jaguars. His career high in sacks is 8.0 — though he’s also very good against the run. Jackson won’t put up gaudy numbers. However, he’s a highly dependable player — and one who has only missed two games during his tenure in the NFL.
