Miami cornerback Michael Jackson, Sr. could be a player we’ll be discussing quite a bit as a possible 2019 NFL Draft selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers for the next several weeks as he’s already been linked to the team in a few mock drafts after participating in this year’s East-West Shrine game. With our draft profile of Jackson forthcoming on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at Miami after I included him in my latest mock draft.
In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Jackson during his college career and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, an interception, or a forced fumble.
Jackson registered 3.5 total sacks in the 51 games that he played in at Miami dating back to 2015 and 6.5 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage. He also registered 12 total pass breakups to go along with 4 interceptions and 3 hurries. I was able to track down all of these 26 plays that he made and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
