    Summary: Jackson is a talented prospect with the tape to back him up, but he doesn’t have first-round tape and is a liability against the run. Jackson has an impressive skill set overall and will be drafted anywhere from late first round to late second round.

    Player Comparison: Marcus Trufant. Jackson isn’t as consistent as Trufant, but he does have the skill set to be a very good corner.
