Scouting Report: Chad Jackson

Florida wide receiver Chad Jackson

Full Name: Chad Jackson School: Florida Pos: WR

Ht: 6-1 Wt: 213 40: 4.35 Year: 3Jr

Bio: Moved into a full-time starting position last season, producing career-best numbers of 88/900/9 and winning All-Conference honors. Started three games as a sophomore, posting 29/648/6.

Pos: Athletic receiver slowly developing a complete game. Uses his frame to shield away opponents, adjusts to the errant throw and extends to make the reception away from his frame. Sturdy receiver who gets airborne and pulls the pass from a crowd or takes a pounding then holds onto the ball. Has the speed to beat defenders deep.

Neg: Must improve his route-running skills. Gets marginal results blocking.

Analysis: A terrific prospect with an ever-improving game, Jackson showed signs of dominance as a junior then went on to have an outstanding combine. Moved into the first 30 selections and should develop into a No. 1 receiver at the next level.
