“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve seen enough from Jackson to know that he makes good decisions, has terrific special-teams value and is a willing hitter with leadership qualities.” –Lance Zierlein
A converted cornerback, he has settled into a role as a safety, and seems to be more comfortable there. Very good in coverage, and has excellent awareness of the position and can coordinate a secondary. Limited in run support, but can still put on strength. Has gotten lost among all of the superstars in the Alabama defense, but could be a late round steal.
