BIOGRAPHY: A full-time starter the past three seasons. Totaled 26 tackles and broke up two passes in seven games as a senior, before injuring a knee. Junior totals were 55/5/8.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized cornerback who displayed terrific ball skills prior to his injury. Quick-footed pedaling in reverse, is fluid transitioning with opponents and stays step-for-step with receivers laterally. Quickly breaks to the throw and has a burst of closing speed.
NEGATIVES: Does not consistently play to his size, and gets blocked from the action or out-positioned by opponents. Does not always play under control.
ANALYSIS: A zone cornerback with starting possibilities, Jackson.s knee injury from last season clouds his future.
