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.

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus went around the league and predicted one potential breakout player for each team during the 2020 season. For the San Francisco 49ers, he picked second-year linebacker Dre Greenlaw. Treash wrote the following of the selection: "Greenlaw surprised as a fifth-round rookie last year with how well he performed in Kwon Alexander's absence.

Greenlaw limits yards after the catch and has a clear nose for the ball. Including the postseason, he racked up 22 passing stops, which were the third-most at the position.

Mike Florio, Peter King, and Chris Simms each made their predictions for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2020 season. The selection process was a little different, though. In a draft-style process, the trio each selected three players who could earn the award, creating a list of nine total candidates. King's first choice was Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle and two-time winner of the award Aaron Donald. With Donald off the board, Simms went with the San Francisco 49ers' young second-year pass rusher, Nick Bosa, as his first selection. "I'm going to go with Nick Bosa, 49ers, off the edge," Simms told Florio and King after stating that Donald may be too obvious a choice. "We know that defense is good. I expect them to be good. I'll go with Nick

Bill Barnwell of ESPN made a case for all 32 NFL teams to make it to Super Bowl LV. Yes, even the Jacksonville Jaguars, who, according to ESPN, have the lowest odds to get that far. The San Francisco 49ers were able to reach the big game last season, which surprised many analysts, and came close to winning it all. What is the key to the 49ers' Super Bowl hopes? Staying healthy. "To get back and over the top, they need quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to stay healthy and some of his receivers to join him," wrote Barnwell.
