Brandon Hughes analysis from nfl.com

Positives: Good initial pop at the line of scrimmage. ... Good body lean into the receiver as he runs the route with him. ... Competes for the pass well. ... Doesn't back down to the challenge of bigger receivers. ... Peeks at the quarterback and has a late burst to close downhill. ... Long arms and quick hands to break up the pass. ... Willing in run support. ... Can elude blockers in space, but also is willing to take them on to get to the ballcarrier. ... Effective open-field tackler who wraps up securely. ... Consistent. ... Four-year starter.

Negatives: Lacks elite straight-line speed. ... Burst downhill not seen when beaten over the top. ... Lacks the late burst to recover if beaten off the snap. ... Came to Oregon State as a receiver, but moved to cornerback for a reason -- stone hands with only three interceptions out of 36 career pass breakups. ... Protected a bit by an aggressive OSU pass rush and an experienced secondary.

Brian Jackson overview from nfl.com
Jackson has an excellent combination of size, strength and athleticism. He doesn’t have great speed or quickness but can leverage receivers with proper body positioning, instincts and size. Jackson is a solid reactor as a run support defender and can be physical on the perimeter. He can be effective in combination zone coverages, but may be a liability in pure man schemes and will likely excel as a rolled up corner in cover two schemes. Jackson could possibly move inside to a safety position given his size and toughness. Jackson does have some limitations but is a good football player that will give depth to a secondary at the next level as well as on special teams.
