Overview:

Jackson finished his career at Iowa, where he played in 40 career games, had 69 tackles, 1.5 for loss, 10 interceptions, 25 pass breakups, and 2 forced fumbles. He has good size, he has good speed, is a solid tackler, and very physical. He does not back down, he has good instincts, is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a shut down cornerback, a great cover cornerback, and a ball hawk. He is also a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. On the other side, up until 2017, he only had 1 career start at cornerback. With all of that said, I view Jackson being a 1st-2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
