The dude gets paid millions of dollars to figure that out. Lets not make excuses for him bc not every single snap he was playing 20 yards off the LOS. I’ve seen him whiff and take bad angles playing close too so its really moot.
Just because he went in the 4th round does not mean he is considered a worse prospect than Evans. He dropped that far due to character concerns. Jackson was a second round talent. Mayock called him the steal of the draft for a reason. Yes he was a CB/S tweener but he showed a nose for the football despite being an average ATH in college.
Said I would hold judgment on his coverage skills just off the mere fact of the scheme itself. However I doubt he becomes this good tackler especially with missing so much time. We’d best to work him in as the third guy before taking snaps away.
