ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Bills started their draft with defense and ended it on the same side of the ball as they drafted Dane Jackson, a cornerback from Pittsburgh with their 7th round pick.
Jackson earned second-team All-ACC honors his senior season, recording 43 tackles, one interception, and a team-high 12 pass breakups.
Jackson says his playstyle is agressive, and thinks his new team suits his well.
“I know that I’m going to a rough-nosed defense,” says Jackson. “They’re very aggressive, they like to force turnovers.”
He also says he’s looking forward to learning from one of the best in the game in Bills CB Tre’Davious White.
“I think he’s a great corner,” says Jackson. “He’s very aggressive, just a natural knack for the ball. I’m excited to work with him.”
Jackson was a three-year starter for the Panthers, and even made three starts his redshirt freshman season.
