CB Adoree' Jackson: The Good, the Great and the Ugly

Coach Gene Clemons breaks down cornerback Adoree' Jackson's tape  ahead of the 2022 season.

During his first season with the Giants, there were questions about his overall effectiveness and his health, but all of those questions will likely be answered this season. 

Is the 26-year-old Jackson ready to emerge as a force at the position, or will he continue to be a decent cornerback who needs a Batman to his Robin? We take a look at the good, the great, and the ugly of Jackson’s game.
