Biography: A breakout junior season helped Jackson emerge into a possible first-round selection with an outside shot at being a lottery pick. Jackson had moderate success for a 15-16 Boston College team as a sophomore in 2009-10, averaging 12.9 points on 43.0 percent shooting and 4.5 assists. For the 21-win Eagles in 2010-11, Jackson finished third in the ACC in both scoring at 18.2 points per game and field-goal shooting at 50.3 percent, and sixth in 3-point shooting at 42.0 percent. The all-ACC first-team selection significantly improved his shooting, especially in catch-and-shoot situations, after connecting on 43.0 percent from the field and 29.1 percent on 3-point attempts as a sophomore. While his shooting exploits alone are enough to make teams take notice, Jackson's athletic ability is also highly coveted. He has an explosive first step and an impressive vertical leap. His long arms have helped him become a solid defender and an above-average rebounder. Jackson played the point in college and will likely be asked to run the offense for an NBA team. He did a solid job of controlling the ball last season, averaging 1.88 assists per turnover - tied for fifth in the ACC. Jackson will likely need to add some strength, but he possesses the skills to turn into a contributor at the pro level.
