Donte Jackson on the rise.

Off topic, but judging by that picture I can imagine that the ball was under thrown and Tre Boston and Jackson were both trailing the WR. 

 

On topic: hopefully excels this year.

Will see. His issue last year was turf toe so that's not related to size. 

He gets banged up a lot and not just turf toe. I think his size is a legitimate concern. I like him as a player though.

He is probably our best playmaker we have had in the secondary in a while. If he was Troy Pride's size we probably don't draft Horn.

I’m always leery of guys who ‘all of a sudden get it!’ their contract year. They fooled Hurney like no ones business.

He has shown some flashes though but he’s also made some really dumb mistakes. He has been improving but I would never want him on a #1 alone.

Which matters because if he wants that kind of money even after a solid year (likely), not sure I’d want to resign him.

Donte Jackson and Jaycee Horn have the potential to completely shift how our defense operates. They are fast, athletic, and have no trouble taking the best opposing receiver and dealing with them accordingly.

Jackson looked a lot like a true No. 1 corner after the bye week once he finally rid himself of the toe problem that made things extremely difficult over the first half of the campaign.

This year is a big one for Jackson, who is heading into the final year of his deal. Speaking to the media on Wednesday, his coordinator is confident the former second-round pick can make the necessary strides and become one of the league’s best next time around.

{ “Donte knows that the more consistent he gets … his talent, his movement skills, I don’t know that there’s much better in all of football. So the more consistent he gets, the more big plays. He has exceptional ball skills and exceptional movement. So the more consistent he gets, I think it’s the limit.” }

Getting Jackson help was absolutely imperative this offseason.

I know one of the NO games (later one, I think), Drew brees AVOIDED jacksons side the entire game. I think he only threw 1 or 2 passes in jacksons direction. They attack weakness, make LB pass cover, etc.. But to me that at least showed me how the saints staff viewed Djack, I was pleasantly surprised.
