BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 62/2/4. Junior totals included 42/1/6. Productive special-teams player.
POSITIVES: Good-sized cover corner who is effective facing the action. Plays smart football, quickly picks up assignments in zone and keeps the action in front of him. Fluid transitioning off the line with opponents, and quarterbacks purposely throw away from him.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top-end speed and will struggle staying downfield with fast opponents. Drops a lot of passes that would ordinarily be picked off.
ANALYSIS: An instinctive cornerback with nice size, Jackson is best suited in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage.
