Strengths:

  • Pure ball hawk
  • Size
  • Length
  • Highly instinctive
  • Ball skills
  • Work ethic
  • Anticipates routes
  • Leadership
  • Play increases in big games

Analysis: Josh Jackson put together a remarkable 2017 campaign, he dominated with 27 passes defensed including eight interceptions. He allowed a 41.3 percent completion rate and made a play on 25.7 percent of his targets. Jackson is a tall corner with long arms that allow him to affect passing lanes and receivers. He is one of, if not the most instinctive cornerback in this draft class. He always plays the ball and not the man. Flashed supreme ball skills. High-point winner with ability to pull down the one-hand grab. Put together monster performances in big games. Finished with three interceptions in upset win over Ohio State and two pick-sixes against Wisconsin. His anticipation is top-notch and will allow him to succeed at the next level. He did not allow an interception after Week 4. Coaches and teammates have commended Jackson for his work ethic and leadership abilities.

Weaknesses:

  • One-year wonder?
  • Patience
  • Makeup speed
  • Opens up from press coverage
  • Scouts question experience

Analysis: The incredible season Josh Jackson put together was just that, one season. He has a total of 14 starts on his resume. Needs more experience and more patience. Too easily influenced by release fakes at the line of scrimmage. Doesn’t flash a big chase burst when he gets behind on the routes (crossers). Needs to tighten up tackling. Questions are being raised about his long speed. His anticipation can be a bad thing at times as his impatience gets the best of him.
