Strong Points

Has played a variety of positions (CB, RB, WR, RS). Exceptional athletic ability and speed. Excellent return skills. Can play man, off, or zone. Keeps good position on receivers with good awareness. Willing run support player and a good tackler. Excellent hands.

Weak Points

Size. If he measures shorter than 5-foot-10, some teams will have him off their boards. Needs to add bulk and strength. Will have some trouble with taller receivers.

The Way We See It

Jackson is really a specialist because of what he brings to the table. Has the skill set to play on offense or defense and be productive. Can be a slot receiver or a slot corner as well as a team's top return man. Will be a difference maker as a returner the day he signs. I see him as a slot corner who will match up well on most slot receivers. He lacks the size to be a regular on the outside. Because of his playmaking ability, he will get drafted higher than his defensive skill set dictates, but his return skills are special.
