BIO: Former Minnesota transfer who posted 90/442/2 as a senior. Had a big year in 2002 totaling 1,317 yards rushing with six touchdowns.
POSITIVES: Undersized runner with a timid playing style. Quick footed, easily changes direction or cuts back on a dime. Runs with good lean, quick through the hole and displays playing balance carrying the ball. Makes the first defender miss and elusive.
NEGATIVES: When running lacks strength and easily brought to the ground. Marginal skills in pass protection. Rarely used in the passing game.
ANALYSIS: Looking like a potential third-down back early in his career at Minnesota, Jackson has watched his play steadily regress. Does not play with a sense of urgency and does not like physical contact. A long shot at best who must make a mark on special teams.
