SCOUTING REPORT

Khyree Jackson's combination of size, athleticism, and competitive nature positions him as a potential Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft. He is projected to be a mid-level starter at the NFL level, best suited for schemes that value physical, press-man coverage. His ability to cover the opposing team's top receivers, combined with his ball skills, make him a valuable asset. However, to reach his full potential in the NFL, Jackson will need to refine his technique to reduce penalties and improve his agility to better manage quick, shifty receivers.

Primary scout:

Brandon Lundberg

PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Khyree Jackson embodies the archetype of a long and athletic cornerback suited for a man-to-man defensive scheme in the NFL. His most notable strength is his ability to excel in press coverage, leveraging his exceptional length to disrupt receivers' routes right off the line. Jackson's competitive nature shines through in his persistent challenge to receivers throughout their routes and at the catch point, utilizing his ball skills effectively. Despite his advantageous size and athleticism, Jackson demonstrates a notable area for improvement in his change of direction skills, which affects his ability to keep up with quicker receivers at breakpoints. His overaggressive play style, while beneficial in physical matchups, has led to penalties due to being overly handsy. His aggressive physicality is a benefit vs. the run.
