Draft 2017

Pick No.112

Selected By: Chicago Bears

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 5 (112)

Pick Analysis: Jackson had a chance to leave for the NFL after an outstanding junior season in 2015, where he was a first-team All-SEC and third-team AP All-American selection (six interceptions, scoring on two). He decided to return, however, to help his team win back-to-back national championships. Unfortunately, he suffered a broken leg while returning a punt in the season's eighth game, ending his college career. Before that occurred, he had two punt returns for touchdowns in 2016 and secured second-team all-conference honors from league coaches with an interception and two pass break-ups. Jackson began his career in Tuscaloosa as a cornerback, starting four games as a freshman (20 tackles, one interception, two pass breakups). He tore his right ACL in spring 2014 practices, but still returned to start 10 games at corner in 2014 (41 tackles, two for loss, one INT, six PBU, two forced fumbles).
