Jets signed Nebraska CB Lamar Jackson.
Jackson (6'2/208) peaked as a senior with a Big 10-high 15 passes defended, finishing 12th in the nation with 1.3 pass breakups per game. His salivating length (32 1/4") will entice multiple front offices at the next level — Jackson scraps as if he's bigger than his opponent, no matter their size — but his red flags include getting benched at various times throughout his career for run-ins with numerous coaches; for what it's worth, Nebraska's staff claims Jackson showed better focus as a senior following the birth of his son. He projects as a starter with the versatility to move to safety if NFL talent consistently beats him off the line.
