RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Jackson has been a mainstay in the Texans’ secondary since being drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft. There's been some bumps along the way, particularly during his rookie season, but he's worked hard to make himself a legit cornerback and got the organization to re-sign him for another four years prior to 2015. He really shines in run support, placing third on the team in tackles in 2015. The knock on him, though it's more of a fantasy knock than a real-world one, is that he has just 12 picks in six NFL seasons.

2015

Jackson, who signed a four-year deal in the offseason, will return as one of Houston's starting cornerbacks.

2014

Jackson will be one of Houston's starting cornerbacks.

2013

Jackson had a nice bounce-back season in 2012 when his hold on one of the starting cornerback jobs appeared to be vulnerable. He enters the 2013 as a starter with more solid footing.

2012

Jackson held on to his starting cornerback spot, but was pushed for snaps all season by Jason Allen, who left for Cincinnati in the offseason via free agency. Jackson certainly hasn't lived up to the billing as a first-round draft pick and his starting job can be stolen by a veteran, like Alan Ball. The Texans will also take a look at two 2011 draft picks -- Brandon Harris and Roc Carmichael -- but Jackson enters training camp as the starter.

2011

Like many rookie cornerbacks, Jackson had a difficult time in transitioning to the pro game, though his struggles were no worse than as every other cornerback on the Texans' roster. Coaches love his physicality -- Jackson was fifth on the team with 71 tackles -- and feel good about him in zone coverage. They feel he needs to learn better man-to-man technique, and those are the kinds of things that come with experience and repetition. One thing is for certain, he should see more action coming his way with opponents likely to throw away from Jonathan Joseph's side.

2010

Jackson was already lining up with the first-unit and is expected to start at one of the cornerback positions to open the 2010 season. Houston needs some of its younger players to develop in the secondary and it doesn't take a savant to realize Jackson, selected in the first round, will get a plenty of chances to prove himself.
