A surprising Adoree Jackson stat

This dude is going to be a shutdown corner.

I feel like I am a broken record with this, but Adoree Jackson has been really good this year. Don’t believe me? Check out this infographic (I think that’s what the kids are calling these):

I would not have guessed that Adoree would be in the top 3 in this stat. We knew he would eventually have the ability to take away speed guys, but for him to be able to win 50/50 balls this often is really surprising.

I never would have guessed that through 13 weeks of the season I would feel better about Jackson than Corey Davis. No, I am not calling Davis a bust. It is ridiculously early for that, but we have seen so much more from Adoree at this point.

The Titans defense has the foundation to be really good in the coming years. If they can find that EDGE (h/t gramsey) guy to put them over the edge this offseason, they might just be a shut down unit next year.
