Draft Profile: Michael Jackson (Cornerback, Miami)


Michael Jackson, CB, Miami

HT: 6’1” WT: 210 lbs


Michael Jackson is expected to get picked in the third or fourth round of the NFL draft in most mock drafts. If Tampa Bay does not address the cornerback position before the fourth round, Jackson should be very an interesting option for Licht and the Buccaneers to monitor. Jackson played well in 2018. He started all 13 games as a senior and recorded 2.5 sacks, 42 tackles and 6 passes defensed. He could end up being a steal early in the fourth round.


– Big frame, long arms
– Great at jamming his opposing receiver
– Has proven to get to the quarterback on blitzes


– Make-up speed a concern
– Seems to lack instincts required for the position
