Excellent at anticipating routes and can keep eyes on quarterback without losing track of receiver. Mid-points high-low routes in zone coverage. Appears comfortable lining up close to the line of scrimmage. Squeezes receivers to the sideline. Aggressive and not afraid to jump up. Plays with a swagger. Can get caught trying to make a play on the ball when should wrap receiver up for short gain but rarely.
He started every game but 1 in his 3 years at Bama.
Also a high school standout with 1436 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns and 9 receptions for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns ans a senior on offense.
In 2009 and an amazing 13 pass breakups and in 2008 had 10.
Dude is a player!
I would probably be ok with this type CB if I had a great FS behind him. Jackson's combine 40 4.41 is good and may allow him to run with fast WR but I don't about his "turn and pursue" ability. Walterfootball .com has him in 2nd and rated behind Haden, Wilson and McCourty.
