Chevis Jackson, CB, LSU

Jackson showed signs of becoming a force in 2006 when he had 46 tackles and two interceptions with 14 pass breakups and he delivered on that promise in 2007. He closed out his collegiate career with an outstanding senior campaign in which he totaled 44 tackles -- 34 solo -- and had five interceptions and 16 pass breakups. The work earned him All-Southeastern Conference recognition from the Associated Press and the coaches. Jackson has almost all the tools NFL scouts like to see in a corner -- athleticism, quickness, toughness, good size and long arms. He can stay with receivers coming out of their breaks and he showed this season that he gets an excellent jump on the ball. He's not afraid to get physical with receivers and is effective in run support. His work ethic will be appreciated. His experience against top-flight receivers will boost his stock. The biggest knock on him is average speed -- 4.58 40-yard dash -- which figures to give him trouble with NFL receivers who are elusive and change directions easily. He needs to have better footwork. His nose for the ball can get him in trouble at times, as he has a tendency to be too aggressive. Jackson figures to be a solid pro, but is most likely better suited for a zone scheme. He will probably need to have good workouts to avoid being a second-day selection.
