If Zac Taylor decides that he wants to take a developmental quarterback in the later rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft, he need look no further than Tyree Jackson. Jackson is a hulking presence, standing at 6’7 and weighing in around 245 pounds. In his senior season at Buffalo, Jackson passed for 28 touchdowns versus 12 interceptions, while rushing for an additional seven touchdowns. However, what Jackson has in raw size is hurt by his very sloppy and inconsistent mechanics. Jackson has multiple throws in nearly every game where he is unable to properly set his feet, leading to an off-target throw. Accuracy is also a concern, with Jackson completing nearly 56% of his throws at Buffalo. If Taylor is interested in taking on a project in year one at Cincinnati, then Jackson provides him the opportunity to do so.
