2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ADOREE' JACKSON: Southern Cal, 5100 186 4.41. Junior entry from Belleville, IL. Three-year starter and an explosive kickoff return specialist. Won the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. First-team All-Pac 12 honors. Top shelf athlete when it comes to speed, burst, and agility. Can play at a high level in different coverage roles. Shows an effective jab at the point of attack whole holding his footwork in position to turn and dart downfield. Easy stop and go movement. Fluid hips and feet. Plays the ball in the air like a receiver. Aggressive and savvy. High points the ball. Trusts his backpedal, won’t bail too early. Understands how to use his speed and shows the confidence to overplay underneath routes knowing he can catch up if beaten. Offers some of the most dynamic ability in the class when the ball gets in his hands. Has plenty of experience on offense. Small frame and lacks a physical presence. Often an ankle diver when tackling. Over aggressive underneath and can easily be fooled on double routes. Needs better route recognition. Lacks the instinctive feel in coverage. Appears to be a reaction-only type cover man. Jackson has as many accolades and awards on his mantle as anyone. Has played all over the field for the Trojans and no matter where he was, he excelled. Will enter the league as a cornerback, but his quality tape as a receiver and running back will give NFL coaches some ideas to try out. In addition, the All- America track and field star will immediately become one of the league’s top return specialists. Now that he can fully focus on football, Jackson’s arrow is pointing up as much as anyone. 2016 stats: 55 T, 5 INT, 11 PBU, 1082 return yards (4 TD). BTR:left 4.65, right 4.80. OSR:10/35. Second/third round. (A-31 3/8, H-9 1/4, VJ-36, SS-DNP).
