Scout Alonzo Dotson will be speaking on Jackson in a minute here
Jackson did follow the opponents' top receiver around and did play some in the slot. Didn't tackle very well in the run game, but he's a ball hawk. Led the nation with eight interceptions. But he's a one-year starter. Kind of came out of nowhere to become a starter.
6-0 1/2, 196 pounds. Ran the 40 in 4.48 at the combine. Has 74 1/4 inch wing span, 9 3/8 hands.
Had a 38-inch vertical and benched 225 pounds 18 times.
Improved his vertical to 40 inches at pro day.
Doesn't sound like he's a head case at all. Said to be an intelligent player.
Only started one game before his junior year.
He led the FBS with 26 passes broken up.
Alonzo Dotson on Josh Jackson: This is a guy who is extremely smart. Strong, smart, can jab people at the line of scrimmage. We really like what he can with press.
Dotson: You might get on him because he's a lean kid. But the will and want is there to get guys down.
Dotson: Definitely a wherewithal to get the ball. Micah did a great job tracking the ball. Josh is the same way.
Dotson: Speed never really worried us. He's so smart and always in the right position to get the ball.
That's it for Alonzo. Now we wait and see if Gutekunst gets back into the third round.
Tomorrow. First pick of the day.
Hang in there. I'll start writing my novel on the blog so you can all read along.
What I was told was that wasn't his strength but I'm going to go back and look at his tape. Sometimes these scouts project how a guy will play. They see him play press sometimes and think he can do it with good coaching.
It would have to be the third and they're going to have to find a trade partner. But I would bet Gutekunst is trying.
I don't know about Guice. That's a good question.
Dallas took Connor Williams.
Dallas Goedert goes to the Eagles.
Edge rusher Uchenna Nwosu from USC went to San Diego.
Yes, I believe they would have to.
