Overview:

Jackson finished his career at LSU, where he played in 36 career games, had 110 tackles, 4.0 for loss, 4 interceptions, 19 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered. He has great speed, is a tackling machine, a solid cover cornerback, and a defensive play maker. He was a special teams standout, as he helps in the return game as a Kick Returner. He is very physical, and does not back down. He has good instincts, is a very relentless defender, and is a ferocious defender. On the other hand, he is not the tallest cornerback, but that does not hurt his game, and he commits too many defensive pass interferences. With that all said, I see Jackson ending up being a 1st-2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
