Notes:

  • Excellent kick returner
  • Track star won Pac 12 long jump in 2016 and 2015
  • Adoree’ Jackson required ankle surgery after playing against John Ross
  • More against John Ross
  • Lacks size, but is a talented athlete
  • An excellent athlete that plays football, more than an excellent football player that is athletic, hence the excellent kick returning which requires less technique than athletic talent
  • Trouble with double moves, ref: John Ross video
  • Uses speed to make up for marginal technique
  • Needs to work on first step out of backpedal
  • Devin Hester played cornerback with the Miami Hurricanes and will be a Hall of Famer as a kick returner, not that Adoree’ Jackson needs to book a flight to Canton, but he might be an All-Pro special teamer rather than cornerback
