Any team that we play will focus heavily on the #2 CB on our team and that's just how it's going to go until the Texans defense and the #2 CB can prove that it's not a sound decision to do so.
The analysis showed that Jackson played better than Patrick Peterson through their respective first five games as a pro.
Both gave up 3 passing TDs.
Peterson was punked on 2 rushing TDs, Jackson none.
Both had one INT, but Jackson's INT against the Giants was "more legitimate" than Peterson's against the Seahawks.
Jackson had 5 PDs while Peterson only had 3.
Jackson made more plays on 3rd down conversions than Peterson due to his tackling prowess (this one I will have to dig, but I'm 100% positive.)
And Peterson was regarded as the best CB prospect in a long long time.
Jackson wasn't even the first CB drafted in his class.
