At 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, Donte Jackson will have to add some bulk to go toe to toe with strong NFL wide receivers, not to mentioning helping against the run, but his track-star speed matched Parry Nickerson and Denzel Ward with the top 40-yard dash time at the combine (4.32).

Jackson’s coverage skills at LSU were solid, breaking up 19 passes and intercepting four. He declared for the draft after his junior season but is still 22 years old. Returned kickoffs during his freshman and sophomore seasons.

Jackson also played in the nickel at times for the Tigers.

PRODUCTIVITY SCORE: 96.4 | ATHLETICISM SCORE: 82.2 | AGE SCORE: 102.5
