Darius Jackson Scouting Report
Darius Jackson is a physical defensive back with excellent vision. He zeros in on defenders and is quick to get off blocks in the secondary. He's solid at supporting the run and a tackler who has some quickness out of his back pedal. In the first play in the video below you see Jackson make an insane one handed interception on the sideline and still manage to get his toes in. Shows an aptitude for man and zone coverage. Good burst and speed with impressive instincts. Changes directions well. Has room to add 10 to 20 pounds of lean muscle. (DT Yates)
