“Spectacular three-way player with a flair for the dramatic. Jackson will concentrate more on refining his cover skills this fall, but he is capable of delivering splash plays as an occasional receive or returner for the Trojans.” –Bucky Brooks
Absolutely explosive and electric as a returner. Has played at wide receiver as well, but concentrating on cornerback now. Role in the NFL will definitely be as a returner, and will need to work throughout this season to polish his skills as a cornerback. Off the charts athletic ability, but technique is raw as a defensive player. Smooth and fluid, and can play inside and outside. Needs more experience at the cornerback position, but should be a part of an offensive package for whomever drafts him.
