18. Steelers: Kareem Jackson, cornerback, Alabama. Jackson was overshadowed by Javier Arenas in Nick Saban's 3-4 defense, but started all three years and ran in the mid- to low-4.4s at the Scouting Combine. Jackson is squarely on the first-round radar, and Pittsburgh's biggest weakness is at cornerback.

Pro Football Talk: 2010 Mock Draft, Take Three Interestingly enough, the guys at PFT have Kareem Jackson going in the first round at #18 overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers (don't wet yourself, Todd). Having McClain (#12) and Cody (#28) going in the first round isn't exactly a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention, but that is the highest I've seen Jackson projected yet by anyone who I would consider a legitimate source. One way or the other, though, I think we can safely say that, barring a last-minute drop, Kareem made a very good decision when he chose to come out early.
