BIOGRAPHY: Three year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 44/5/16. Junior numbers included 46/2/16.
POSITIVES: Well sized cornerback best facing the action. Displays a good sense of timing, takes good angles to the action and quickly locates the pass in the air. Displays a terrific move to the ball and nicely adjusts or contorts to defend the throw. Immediately reacts to receivers moves, stays with opponents out from their breaks and works hard to defend the pass. Possesses good hands for the pick.
NEGATIVES: Not a sure handed tackler. Lacks top-end speed and struggles to stay with receivers downfield.
ANALYSIS: Jackson is confident and tough defensive back with a penchant for breaking up passes. He does not possess the pure speed to be used in man-to-man situations yet could be effective in a zone system where the action is kept in front of him.
