The true value of Tyson Jackson - Bill Williamson

The true value of Tyson Jackson
August, 14, 2012

By Bill Williamson | ESPN.com

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Tyson Jackson is maligned and probably will always be as long as he is with the Kansas City Chiefs. It goes with the territory of being a No. 3 overall pick.

Folks expect spectacular dividends from players drafted that high, but Jackson will never be spectacular. But he has been productive and is a big reason why the team's defense is expected to be one of the better units in the league.

The Chiefs value Jackson as one of the best run-stopping 3-4 defensive ends in the NFL. Yes, No. 3 picks should get sacks, but thatís not Jacksonís game. He has two sacks in three NFL seasons. The Chiefs will continue to get the brunt of their pass-rush from star Tamba Hali and youngster Justin Houston.

It's Jackson's job to halt the run and he does it well. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson had 38 defensive stops (characterized as tackles for an offensive failure on the play) in 2011. That total led the NFL in run stop frequency.

Kansas City defensive end Glenn Dorsey, the No. 5 overall pick in 2008, added 32. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson and Dorsey's totals were the highest in the NFL by 3-4 ends.

Like Jackson, Dorsey has been criticized for a being of high-pick bust. But these statistics and the Chiefs' improvement on the defensive front in the past year show these former high picks are making their presence felt.

Someone in the national press finally acknowledging it. Maybe we won't hear idiots calling him a bust anymore.

He's basically Glenn Dorsey, part two.

He better taking a pay cut, too.

Tyson has turned into a very solid player like I said he would. Outside of turning into the second coming of Bruce Smith, he could have never lived up to the #3 overall, but he's certainly no bust either.

Now a couple weeks ago when I was bagging on TJ you were the one to point out how well he played and was top 5 at his position and what not.

I said he was a top run stopper at his position.

He has played well in that facet of his game.

Still wasn't worth the pick or the money.

And that's the thing - people use the term "bust" loosely. People need to be more specific.

Draft picks are currency. While a Honda Accord is a solid, dependable car that will fulfill its role of getting you from Point A to Point B - you wouldn't pay $100,000 for one.

He's not a bust from a player perspective, but certainly a bust from a draft pick perspective.
