Tennessee Titans: Defensive Player Spotlight – CB Adoree’ Jackson
With a scarce defensive secondary and a plethora of unproductive corners, The Tennessee Titans needed a playmaker on defense. So with their second first round draft pick, The Tennessee Titans addressed their needs and drafted Adoree’ Jackson from USC. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound corner is a speed monster and is going to be able to help the Titans from opposing offenses burning them down the field.
Adoree’ Jackson is most likely going to be their number one corner. This will be a huge help in their secondary. Facing receivers like Indianapolis Colts WR, T.Y. Hilton, Houston Texans WR, DeAndre Hopkins, and Jacksonville Jaguars WR, Allen Robinson, he will need all the speed he has to keep up with them, as well as tracking the ball from the quarterback.
Adoree’ has a lot of upside, with his speed and agility, along with his ability to read routes and read the quarterbacks movement. Not to mention that Adoree’ is not only great against the pass but is a great wrap up tackler against the rush. With his vision and athletic skills, he will be able to drive and inspire his teammates around him. Although being a cornerback he will have to be the field general of the defense, as well as being the vocal leader for all of the defensive backs.
Adoree’ Jackson is going to have his work cut out for him though. The Titans will insert him into the starting lineup in his first season. This is going to be a tough task to handle. However, they believe that he can handle the task.
With the skills and experiences Adoree’ has faced, he should be able to handle all of these obstacles. Additionally, saying all of that, Jackson could potentially be Defensive Rookie of The Year along with the spotlight on The Tennessee Titans defense.
