There has been some ridiculous talk about Adoree Jackson being a potential bust, but that obviously didn’t come from people who actually watch college football. Check out what some of those “college football watchers” have been saying about Jackson on Twitter:
Adoree Jackson could basically be Cordarrelle Patterson on offense + ST, only with the added benefit of quality starting CB play.— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) May 10, 2017
Wow...Adoree' broke 15 tackles on 27 receptions. JuJu broke 12 on 89. https://t.co/58kdo25aXg— Cameron DaSilva (@camdasilva) May 10, 2017
So his floor is a Pro Bowl special teams player. His ceiling is a guy that is a Pro Bowl corner, Pro Bowl special teams player and contributor on offense. That’s well worth the 18th pick.
Anyway, NFL.com named Jackson to their All-Rookie team as the punt returner:
The electric returner with world-class athleticism and dynamic playmaking ability should put the ball in the paint a few times as the Titans' designated home-run hitter in the kicking game.
We could talk about how ridiculous it is that Corey Davis isn’t on the list (I mean Mike Williams and Zay Jones, seriously?), but this post is about how awesome Jackson is.
