ESPN's Mel Kiper reported a belief that Alabama junior CB Eddie Jackson will play safety this year.
Jackson was ranked as the No. 5 underclassmen safety in Kiper's preseason rankings, a bit of a surprise, seeing as though Jackson has played corner for the Tide. Kiper explains: "I had Jackson penciled in as one of of my top five junior cornerbacks, but in speaking to coaches down there I flipped him over to safety based on what I believe they'll ask him to do in 2015. Kid is a great competitor and was back on the field remarkably quick after an ACL tear in spring practice last year." We hadn't read this before and wonder if it has anything to do with Jackson's public faceplant against Auburn WR Sammie Coates last year. Coates torched Jackson repeatedly in a five-catch, 206-yard beatdown. Jul 19 - 8:46 PM
