Bengals CB William Jackson has been dominant against top opponents | NFL


(Patrick) #1

Now 12 weeks into the season, Jackson ranks third in yards allowed per coverage snap (0.67), second in passer rating allowed (41.4) and fifth in coverage snaps per reception allowed (17.8) among cornerbacks with 130-plus coverage snaps. Additionally, he is one of just 14 NFL cornerbacks who have logged at least 200 snaps in coverage and to not have allowed a touchdown all season. He currently holds the league’s 24th-highest grade among all cornerbacks with an 82.3 overall grade.

Jackson has earned significant snaps against four different receivers who currently own overall grades above 73.0 in the nine games he’s played this season, squaring off against Antonio Brown (93.9 – first), Davante Adams (79.8 – 24th), T.Y. Hilton (76.4 – 38th) and Marqise Lee (73.9 – 50th). This normally-dominant group of four, however, combined for just two receptions for 42 yards (seven targets) when Jackson was the primary coverage defender.

Why he wasnt on the list to vote for Pro Bowl is beyond me.

This is true especially on a mediocre to bad Team.

Super impressive. He is a bargain at this price. I expect that his contract will be re-done before the season starts.

Thank you for the post. I sure hope that we can get some “pointers/ideas” from our current NFL pros. That is what makes a program like Alabama so dominant.

Cool stuff. From this I’d say WJ III is well on his way to becoming at least the second most valuable corner drafted in 2016 behind Ramsey.

The other two CBs drafted ahead of him (Apple, Hargraves) had awful 2017 seasons filled with suspensions and injury.

You would recall that the Steelers were very high on WJ only to have their rival Cincy snatch him the pick right before theirs, even though corner wasn’t necessarily high on the Bengals need list.
