Overall

Justin Jackson will be a solid complementary back in the NFL. He has the ability to create some big plays, but he is too undersized to be a workhorse back at the next level. Jackson has very quick feet and is most effective in the open field. His lack of power and long speed will hurt him going forward as he looks to get drafted. He is currently shaping up to be a 5th round pick.
