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.

On Thursday, Bovada had the San Francisco 49ers with the fifth-best odds to land quarterback Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans. Those odds haven't budged.

That would be DraftKings, who have the 49ers with the second-best odds to have Watson on the roster for Week 1 of the 2021 season (h/t to Patrick Tulini). Below are the teams with the five best odds to acquire Watson, per DraftKings. It's a significant jump from the +1100 odds San Francisco held with the sportsbook just days ago. Texans +200 49ers



Peter King believes Jimmy Garoppolo will be the 49ers QB for Week 1

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation this offseason. The team inquired about other options — like Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz. It was reportedly "lukewarm" on adding Stafford. San Francisco was never going to surrender the draft capital that the Los Angeles Rams ended up giving to the Detroit Lions. And if you thought that cost was high, imagine what acquiring Deshaun Watson might cost. Jimmy Garoppolo remaining with the 49ers for at least the 2021 season remains a strong possibility. The team had an opportunity to upgrade to Tom Brady last offseason. Peter King of NBC Sports wonders if general manager John Lynch wishes he pushed harder for the move after watching Brady and the Buccaneers win Super Bowl

ESPN: It would take the 'Deshaun Watson effect' for the 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo is the most likely candidate to be San Francisco's starting quarterback in 2021, and it sounds like that's fine by the 49ers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently reported that the Niners are among the teams that Deshaun Watson is "intrigued by." The quarterback wants out of Houston, but the Texans have no desire to trade him and are still hoping to reconcile their differences. Fowler added on SportsCenter this weekend that it would take a monumental opportunity, like adding Watson, for the 49ers to even consider moving on from Garoppolo. "I'm told San Fran is looking at potential upgrades, but they still like Jimmy G," Fowler said via
