Overview:

Jackson was very productive at Alabama, posting 126 tackles, 10 interceptions, and 12 pass breakups. He did a great job transitioning from cornerback to safety, he proves to have good instincts, is good in coverage, and is a hard hitting defensive back. He did have injury concerns at Alabama with a torn ACL, and he is on the light side. I expect Jackson to be picked somewhere on day 2 of the draft.
