On the Hoof: Has excellent height with wide shoulders and long arms. His lower body is also very well developed. Built like 2009 Miami signee Brandon McGee.
Needs Improvement: Has the tendency to be over-aggressive going for the ball leaving little room for error while being exposed to getting beat deep. As a tackler, Jackson needs to sink his hips and explode into the ball carrier, delivering the blow instead of receiving it. Also needs to be more consistent with catching the ball away from his body and at its highest point.
Most Impressive: Has excellent size for a corner with really quick feet and hips on a swivel. His speed is very good as he has the ability to track ball carriers down from behind. Jackson also has a nose for the ball, giving him the potential to be a difference maker on defense.
Conclusion: Jackson's size and skill set should make him a nationally desired commodity. Looks for him to excel on special teams and get a look as a nickel back early in his career.
