Chicago Bears drafted Alabama safety Eddie Jackson

Chicago Bears trade up for 112th overall pick and select defensive back Eddie Jackson out of Alabama. They traded up five spots. He broke his left leg in Game 8 last year while returning a punt and did not participate in the NFL Scouting Combine. He has a rod in that leg. He can play free safety. Eddie Jackson had 9 career interceptions at Alabama and the school record with 308 INT return yards. 6 picks in 2015. 41 games, 37 starts. Jackson has good height and excellent length. Very good athlete who can turn and run and transition. He has some man cover skills and good awareness in zone. Jackson can also returns punts. Smart and instinctive, reads things well.
