Adoree Jackson needs to take a big step for the Titans in 2020.
Adoree Jackson has improved steadily throughout his career. At USC in 2016, Jackson was one of the best corners in the PAC-12. He finished his senior season with 5 interceptions. Through 3 seasons in the NFL Jackson has only been able to record 2 interceptions. As we all know, though, interceptions don’t tell the whole story. His coverage has improved all three seasons that he has played in the NFL. He was even named the Titans most underrated player last season by PFF. In 2020, Adoree Jackson needs to take the next step for the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans picked up Jackson’s 5th-year option earlier this offseason. So, he is locked down with the team for at least 2 more years.
There’s a possibility that Adoree Jackson might be moving around a lot more on defense for the Titans in 2020. Rather than his usual outside position, he could move around with some of the better receivers the team is going to face next season. The Titans secondary has a lot of potential for next season. Jackson effectively shutting down other teams best option could help make the unit elite.
Jackson is athletic enough to stay with even the best route runners in the NFL. There have been some rough times with Jackson (punt returns) but he has the potential to be one of the best corners in the league.
Adoree Jackson only allowed 1 touchdown in 11 games. He has shown flashes of great coverage over the last 3 years.
Adoree Jackson could get paid
Next season is going to be huge for Jackson. Not only can he help boost the Titans defense to one of the best in the NFL, but he could get himself a big paycheck while he’s at it.
If Jackson can prove to the Titans that he can consistently play at an elite level and get interceptions, they could reward him just like they did with Derrick Henry.
