Jackson displayed his potential as a freshman, hauling in 17 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown. As a sophomore, he caught 30 passes for 449 yards and five touchdowns. Jackson’s junior year saw him develop into one of the better return men in the country, averaging over 12 yards per punt return, taking two of them back for touchdowns. He caught 33 balls for 470 yards as a receiver. As a senior, Jackson had his best season overall, catching 30 passes for 688 yards and eight touchdowns.
Jackson is a big play waiting to happen. Any time he touches the football, he is a threat to score. He has excellent speed, and reaches it very quickly. He is quick and can change direction well with the ball in his hands. His biggest value is as a punt returner, but he could also be a playmaker out of the slot as well.
Jackson lacks the size to be more than a situational receiver. He can be overpowered at the line of scrimmage and just be overmatched because of his lack of height and bulk.
Jackson is an exciting player but he is more of a situational type player. He could be a very good return man in the NFL, along with providing some speed and quickness to a receiving core.
