Scouting Report: William Jackson III started 12 of 13 games last year and was named second-team all-conference after finishing with five interceptions and 23 passes defensed, leading the nation. Jackson has good height and length, something that Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. appreciates. 

Jackson is instinctive and quick to react to plays, along with solid ball skills and the ability to get his head around and find the ball on deep throws. He's projected to go in round one or two by NFL.com, and surely Raider Nation is hesitant to see general manager Reggie McKenzie reach on another Houston cornerback after seeing it happen with DJ Hayden in 2013.
