Overview:

Jackson has good size, and great speed. He was a ball hawk, and a tackling machine for Houston. He is experienced, and is a hard hitter. And he is decent in coverage. On the other hand, he struggles at times in coverage, either by getting beat, or by getting lost, and he does not always wrap up on tackle attempts. With that said, I expect Jackson to be a day 2 pick.
