Titans CB Adoree' Jackson hurdled the Raiders' kicker like it was nothing

Jackson’s got some ups!

The Titans selected Adoree’ Jackson out of USC in the 2017 NFL draft, and he showed one of the reasons why in his very first game on Sunday.

Jackson was running a kick back for the Titans when he hurdled kicker Giorgio Tavecchio.

Jackson was brought down quickly after hurdling Tavecchio, but the ease in which he cleared him was impressive.

This isn’t surprising from Jackson. Dan Kadar had him as the No. 8 cornerback in the 2017 NFL draft, and his evaluation adds up to what we saw on Sunday:

Speed, speed, and more speed. Jackson is one of the fastest players in pads in this year’s draft. He can keep up with anyone down the field and closes in a hurry. He’s a good tackler for the position. As an added bonus, Jackson might be the best return man in the draft this year.

Football is fun, but amazing hurdles in football games are even more fun.
