Strengths:

  • Speed
  • Versatility
  • Return skills
  • Can play multiple coverage techniques
  • Consistent tackler
  • Solid ball skills

Analysis: Watching Adoree’ Jackson’s tape the first thing that stuck out to me as well as a multitude of scouts…his return/playmaking ability. He is a high-end return talent who can swing games in an instant. His eight career return touchdowns make him an immediate return man for any team that takes him. His feel in coverage has improved substantially from his freshman season. Shows greater pattern recognition and is able to maintain coverage around the field. Has necessary hip flip and foot quickness to recover from mistakes in press and lapses in coverage in space. Plays in a variety of coverage techniques. Able to mirror and match from press. Features closing burst and takes playmaking angles to the throw. Excellent ball skills with well-timed leaps and aggressive tactics at the catch point.

Weaknesses:

  • Size
  • Over-aggressive
  • Struggles against the run

Analysis: Adoree’ Jackson is smallish for an outside cornerback. He might be limited to just work in the slot. Can be a little over-aggressive with pace of bail coverage when fearing speed. Has a very slight hitch in transition forward from his pedal. Allowed routes to leverage him too far out of the middle of the field when he had no safety help. Could have issues with big slots posting him up in space. Lack of size and run-support strength could make him an early target for teams who like to run out of 11 personnel (three wide receivers).

NFL Comparison: Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones

Draft Projection: Round 2
