Titans' Chris Jackson emerging as favorite for slot CB role?

© Provided by Titans Wire

It appears we need to start paying more attention to second-year defensive back and 2020 seventh-round pick, Chris Jackson, who continues to impress with his work out of the slot in training camp.

All offseason long, the talk has been about cornerbacks Elijah Molden and Kristian Fulton possibly manning the slot in 2021, but Jackson might be emerging as a favorite with his work in practice.

On Monday, AtoZ Sports Nashville’s Luke Worsham noted that Jackson, who also had a pick during the practice, has seen a lot of time in the slot.

“Chris Jackson had a nice pick on a tipped Ryan Tannehill pass during 11-on-11,” Worsham wrote. “He continues to get a boatload of playing time at nickel CB.”

After practice on Tuesday, Jackson received some praise from defensive coordinator Shane Bowen for the work he has done thus far.

With Molden and first-round pick Caleb Farley still getting acclimated, it’s very possible neither will be ready for showtime when Week 1 rolls around.

If that’s the case, we could see 2020 second-round pick Kristian Fulton start on the outside opposite Janoris Jenkins, which would open the door for Jackson to take on the slot role, at least early on.

Semi-hot take: I wouldn’t be *totally* shocked if the #Titans starting CBs Week 1 are Jackrabbit and Fulton with Chris Jackson in the slot.

As @glennonsports pointed out yesterday, it’s been nearly two years since Farley took a live snap. It might take some time (and that’s ok).

Chris Jackson has impressed in his second #Titans camp. Playing aggressively in both coverage and vs the run.

Jackson appeared in 11 games for the Titans last season, starting in three of them. He looked overmatched and his snaps significantly decreased in the second half of the season, but perhaps he’ll be better with a year under his belt and a full training camp and preseason that he didn’t have in 2020.

Whatever the case may be, we need to start accepting the idea that Jackson could be the primary slot corner when the 2021 campaign begins.

.@Titans DB Chris Jackson (@3CJACK) has put on “10 to 15” pounds since last season. He’s feeling good, and enjoying the competition in training camp.
