Tyree Jackson Stats

Tyree Jackson was a three-year starter at Buffalo, making 32 starts for the Bulls during his college career. Jackson has a cannon for an arm, and tallied 6,999 yards, 49 touchdowns and 24 interceptions in three seasons with the Bulls. However, Jackson struggles with his inaccuracy, only posting one season with a completion percentage over 60.0.

Jackson ran a 4.59 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine, but he rarely ran the football at Buffalo. He never had more than 100 carries in a season and only amassed 161 rushing yards during the 2018 season. If NFL coaches figure out a way to utilize Jackson's athleticism, it could open up an entirely new aspect of his game.

Tyree Jackson NFL Draft Prediction

- Tennessee Titans (No. 121), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No.145)

The Tennessee Titans might need a long-term replacement for Marcus Mariota, as he hasn't been able to stay on the field since being drafted No. 2 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. Tennessee recently acquired Ryan Tannehill, in case Mariota gets hurt again, but drafting a developmental project like Jackson could pay off down the line.

Another solid landing spot for Jackson could be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jameis Winston, who was selected one pick ahead of Mariota in the 2015 NFL Draft, has been inconsistent over the course of his NFL career. Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians seemingly gravitates toward quarterbacks with strong arms, so Jackson could fit nicely into Arians' new offense in Tampa.

New customers will get 40/1 on any of the Final Four teams to win the tournament.
