Caring Is Creepy: Have a seat, Josh Jackson

Jackson's highlight reel on Hudl shows a player who's got decent ball skills and is aggressive in run support without sacrificing technique. He shows a knack for getting to the point of attack, squaring, and delivering a solid, clean tackle. He spends time at safety in his film as well and if he fills out he could make a starting-quality prospect at this level in due time. He's not a high-end athlete, and his top-end speed might be a problem at this level, but he's got good enough burst and instincts that he can make most plays.

Iowa used wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy and defensive coordinator/secondary coach Phil Parker to recruit Jackson out of Texas, but Kennedy's a typical point of contact for Texas-based recruits, and Jackson looks destined for the defensive side of the ball. He doesn't have the accolades you'd associate with a guy who is going to contribute immediately, but Iowa has such a phenomenal track record with guys like this that you can't count him out.
