ST. LOUIS — Steven Jackson is coming off his seventh straight 1,000-yard season. That should be one position the St. Louis Rams won't worry too much about on draft day.
Though he'll be 29 in July, an end-of-the-line age for many running backs, Jackson believes he can play for several more years. Using Emmitt Smith, Marcus Allen and Thomas Jones as examples, Jackson said he just has to take care of himself.
Jackson's bruising leadership was among the few bright spots for the Rams, coming off a 2-14 season. They have the sixth pick in next week's draft after dealing the No. 2 overall selection to Washington for a pile of premium picks, and Jackson advocates they take Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon.
