2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about WILLIAM JACKSON III: Houston, 6003 189 4.37. Two years as a fulltime starter. Junior College transfer from Trinity Valley CC. From Houston, TX. Second-team All-AAC and the defensive MVP in the Peach Bowl. Played the field corner in Houston’s defense. Physical with his hands defeating stalk block or using off hand jam in press coverage. Gets good separation versus a block and makes good use of jam to lock receivers out on the sideline. Sheds block well and throws his body at the tackle. Needs to get under control and gather better as he will miss in space. Normally shows a fluid back pedal with good turn and run. Transitions with very little wasted movement. Shows a closing burst on his break and drive. Very difficult to shake as he is good at mirroring cuts. Normally reacts well to double moves but will get pushed off occasionally. Plays off man with good technique, normally maintaining cushion and timing his transition to cut off the route. A little tight in the hips in turn and run and will let a receiver get behind him at times. Needs to consistently turn and run at the right time to compensate. Has the speed to make it work. Will stutter step on occasion reacting but it is slight and his recovery quickness is good. Has the speed to stay with deep routes. Overall good route recognition in zone coverage. At times will get caught staring too much in the backfield and lose leverage on routes in a zone. Sometimes a little too shallow in hard corner coverage but recovery speed is good and he can get under the deeper throw with good ball reaction. Solid ball skills, staying in phase with a receiver and timing ball reaction. Very good at reading the quick game. 2015 stats: 43 T, 5 INT, 23 PBU. BTR:left 4.52, right 4.74. OSR:7/34. First/second round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 1/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
