Might 35 get some special teams and reserve work for the Tennessee Titans?

Considering where Chris Jackson was drafted (the 243rd selection in the seventh round), Titans fans have to argue that, in some cases, this was a win. He looked darn good in training camp and was one of those guys that we as fans and members of the media tend to fall in love with, but there’s a reason why there’s a designation for what we call ‘game speed’.

Jackson saw a lot of the field early, but it didn’t produce much and the seventh-rounder saw his playing time decrease as the season wore on. In 11 regular-season games with three starts, he took the field for 21 percent of the team’s total snaps and got work 11 percent of the time (49 total snaps) on special teams.

He’s a hard worker, so it will be interesting to watch him develop. For now, the goal needs to be making him into a nice cog on special teams. Time will reveal if he can grow into something more down the line. Grade: C
