Overview:

Jackson finished his career at Maryland, where he played in 25 career games, had 80 tackles, 1.5 for loss, 4 interceptions, 9 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered. He has good overall size, he has great speed, and was a tackling machine. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is a good cover cornerback, he is very physical, and does not back down. He is a very relentless defender, and a hard hitter. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. On the other hand, he is undersized a bit, and he has issues with tall wide receivers at times. With that said, I view Jackson as a day 3 pick.
