Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: The Ravens nab a small-school standout with the selection of Jackson. He is slightly undersized, but plays with outstanding confidence and tenacity on the perimeter.

  • 5'10" Height
  • 29 1/8" Arm Length
  • 191LBS. Weight
  • 9" Hands

Overview

Jackson is a four-year starter from Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. While there are a limited amount of prospects out of SLO in the past few years, Jackson projects to be the best. He has strong footwork and understands how to cover in man. The level of his collegiate competition could hurt him, but his speed and athletic ability give him a great shot to compete at the next level, and his potential could make him a mid-round pick or even higher.

Analysis

Strengths

While he has a history of getting beat from time to time, Jackson has been a productive corner for years. He is effective in the run game and has the instincts to make plays on the ball in both the run and pass. He isn't the most physical corner, but he displays great range to recover when getting beat and almost always shows up around the ball.

Weaknesses

Jackson will be knocked for playing at a small school, but he has shown the ability to cover NFL talent within the conference over the years. He can struggle at times in his backpedal and will likely not be an option to play right away at the next level.
