Tennessee’s 2017 first-round cornerback and punt returner Adoree’ Jackson has already started the season off sluggish through three games. He has one muffed punt that turned into six points for the Jaguars, and was flagged for a horrible pass interference call that gave the Colts 46 yards and led to a touchdown for Indianapolis.
In that pass interference, Jackson covered the face of Colts receiver Deon Cain and pulled him to the ground before he could make a play on the ball. That’s an obvious penalty that proved costly. Also, Jackson hasn’t been a very productive tackler for his team. Through three games, Jackson has recorded just eight tackles, the lowest among Tennessee’s secondary.
Last Thursday, Jackson muffed a punt while trying to field a bouncing ball that landed at his 16-yard line before being recovered by Jacksonville at Tennessee’s seven-yard line. That mistake ended up costing the Titans seven points.
Later in the game, Jackson had another miscue at PR when he lost sight of the ball and let it hit the ground at the 37-yard line, which then bounced down to the 17. After that second mistake, receiver Adam Humphries came in and returned for the remainder of the game.
Jackson hasn’t had a superb career so far, but coming into his third year, he was expected to be more productive on defense and make fewer mistakes. Through three games that’s proved not to be the case.
