Scouts will question Alabama sophomore CB Eddie Jackson's "technique, speed and burst," in light of Saturday's performance against Auburn, wrote NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.
"Playing cornerback in today's 'no touch' game is challenging, but NFL scouts and coaches cringe whenever they see a defensive back repeatedly toasted for big plays on the perimeter," Brooks wrote, noting that Jackson was repeatedly burnt by Tigers' WR Sammie Coates. "Jackson simply looked overmatched in one-on-one situations, as evidenced by the five-catch, 206-yard effort from Coates," Brooks wrote. "With the Crimson Tide poised to play a number of speedy receivers in the SEC Championship Game and postseason tournament, Jackson must be ready to deal with an onslaught of throws heading in his direction."
