Positive: Physical college cornerback with average size/speed numbers for the next level. Keeps the action in front of him, displays a solid burst to the ball and is quick up the field. Works hard to defend the run, aggressively lays his shoulders into ball carriers and wraps up tackling. Fluid flipping his hips in transition and mixes it up with receivers throughout the route.
Negative: Shows indecision in coverage, bites on receivers' moves and plays back on his heels. Does not consistently position himself properly to break up the throw. Stiff and slow pedaling in reverse.
Analysis: Jackson is an aggressive defensive back with limited physical and ball skills. He'll offer possibilities in a zone system if he proves his worth on special teams."
