Position:S Class: Sr School:
Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 206 40 Time: 4.71 Grade: 2.91
BIO: Two-year starter who finished with 90/1/4 as a senior after junior totals of 67/1/4.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized defensive back who improved certain aspects of his game as a senior. Displays adequate explosion and possesses a closing burst of speed. Moves well laterally and stepped up his play in run support last year.
NEGATIVES: Lacks both instincts and speed in pass coverage and usually a half step late getting to the spot. Would rather hit than wrap-up and tackle.
ANALYSIS: Jackson has the size to play the strong safety position in a zone scheme yet his competitive nature and willingness to lay things on the line are questionable.
