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.

The San Francisco 49ers announced three practice squad players being protected this week as the team prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, and cornerback Dee Virgin. Benjamin could provide the 49ers with some punt return flexibility heading into Sunday's game. Sudfeld could be insurance in case rookie Trey Lance is unavailable. Lance suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand during San Francisco's preseason finale. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is dealing with a hamstring injury, which might explain the decision to protect Virgin. NFL teams can protect up to four practice squad players per week from being signed by other teams. In addition, teams can

As the excitement builds for the kickoff of the NFL regular season, we gain insight into media expectations via the final 2021 preseason power rankings for the San Francisco 49ers. For the avid NFL football fan, there is perhaps no act so trivial, yet so enjoyable, than participating in an NFL mock draft. I challenge you to identify an activity countless fans engage in for fun despite their realistic expectations of complete and utter failure. Similar is the process of preseason power rankings, which can be quite entertaining to review at the conclusion of the season -- provided you weren't the one doing the ranking.
