The Houston Texans have a pre-draft visit set up with USC cornerback Adoree Jackson prior to the NFL Draft. This will be one of the 30 pre-draft visits that the Houston Texans will use to get a closer look at NFL prospects. Jackson is considered one of the top options at cornerbacks and his versatility has some NFL teams wanting him to contribute on special teams and the offensive side of the football.
What is a Pre-draft Visit?
the Texans, along with the other NFL teams are allowed 30 draft eligible players to visit the team’s home faculty or another location for a one-day physical examination. The players on these visits cannot be timed and tested. They can have interviews and written tests that the prospect can complete for the respective team.
In 2016, Jackson was one of the most complete football players in the nation and brought home the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. Totaling 55 tackles with 5 interceptions and 16 passes defensed, Jackson’s play making ability was hard to miss.
As a returner for the Trojans, Jackson in 2016 scored on two punt returns and two kick off returns and led the Trojans with 94.6 all-purpose yards a game playing primarily on the defensive side of the football.
Checking in at 5-10 and 186 lbs, his size will be in question but he showed he could hold his own against bigger receivers. Running a 4.42 40-yard dash and a 36 inch vertical at the NFL Combine solidified him as one of the premier athletes at his position for the draft class.
Jackson was a team captain for the Trojans, the team MVP in 2015 and pursued Olympic aspirations in the long jump and 4x100 relay.
