Janzen Jackson, FS, McNeese State

Janzen Jackson was formerly with the University of Tennessee. After a run-in with the law, the university decided to release Jackson from the football team. Shortly thereafter, he joined McNeese where his father coached.

Jackson is a great athlete with adequate range. He's not particularly fast, but he has a nice burst when going after the football. He doesn't have straight line speed and is at his best when changing directions or leaping for the ball. Jackson has just enough talent and fluidity to play cornerback as well and could be a career nickel package player.

If he sticks at safety, he'll need to add some bulk and improve his tackling. Jackson too often looks for the showtime, big hit rather than staying fundamentally sound. His immaturity issues push him out of the first two rounds and teams would be wise to remember he didn't stick at Tennessee for a reason. Coaches remained mum on the details, but he had a falling out with the coaching staff after Lane Kiffin left.
