Jackson, like most players on this list, has received a lot of chances to carve out a role with the Ravens, but just can’t seem to make the most of it. Last season presented perhaps his best opportunity as Jackson was the favorite for slot corner duties.
Jackson appeared to be destined for a big role on defense before landing on suffering a concussion, spraining his toe, and ultimately tearing his PCL in 2014.

When he was healthy and on the field, Jackson was a big disappointment, grading out as the 99th best corner (out of 108) by Pro Football Focus last season.
The Ravens bolstered their cornerback depth this offseason, signing free agents Kyle Arrington and Cassius Vaughn while also drafting Tray Walker in the fourth round. Jackson is likely feeling the heat, as he should be.
