At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot and 189-pound Jackson had a 40-time of 4.37 seconds and a broad jump of 116 inches.
Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Jackson to Phillip Gaines, had the following to say in his scouting report:
Tall cornerbacks with length who can run and play the football are usually in high demand and that could be the case for Jackson as well. While he has the traits for the position, the league is turning into small and fast or big and strong at the receiver spot and handling those two elements could take a year or two for him to improve in before he becomes a full-time starter.
