Ol’ reliable. You know V-Jax is going to get his targets, especially from Winston. As Jackson continues to adjust his role, he has the opportunity to have almost a Larry Fitzgerald type transition to the inside receiver.
Moving Jackson inside will allow for more targets and create major mismatches in Jackson’s favor against linebackers and smaller corners. No, he’s not the player he once was, but he’s still a very solid mid-round pick that will serve as a number two receiver or a flex option depending on the matchup.
Jackson finished with 33 receptions, 562 yards and three touchdowns in ten games last year, but has jut 601 fewer yards in his four seasons in Tampa as he did in seven seasons with the Chargers. Bit by the injury bug the past few years, Jackson is looking to have a big, bounce-back season in year two of Koetter’s offense.
Jackson and Mike Evans make up one heck of a duo if they both remain healthy. With Winston at the helm, it’s certainly not out of the question to see both receivers go over 1,000 yards this season. Look for Jackson anywhere from rounds seven to ten.
