Jackson needs to get stronger. He has a relative lack of experience, only starting one full season.
DFD COOKBOOK RECIPE
DEEP FRIED DRAFT
Jackson has tremendous ball skills. He breaks on the ball so well. Jackson has good length. He is a sure tackler in run defense.
Josh Jackson has some of the best ball skills for a corner in this draft. He could stand to put on a little extra weight and get stronger. Jackson has a bright future and I would not be surprised to see him drafted in Round One.
66 tackles, 8 interceptions, 24 PBU, 2 defensive TD
Today we are going to look at a productive cornerback prospect. Josh Jackson was a two-star recruit from Lake Dallas HS (Corinth, TX). Iowa was his only Power-5 conference offer. Jackson redshirted his first year before playing sparingly as a freshman. He played in twelve games a sophomore, starting one. This past season, Jackson started every game. He notched eight interceptions (3 against Ohio State) and led the nation in passes defended. Jackson was a consensus first-team All-American.
