Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson announed on Instagram Wednesday he is declaring for the NFL Draft.
“After discussing with my coaches, family, and a lot of prayer I have decided to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft,” he wrote. “I cannot thank Coach Parker, Coach Ferentz & Coach Doyle enough for the opportunity to wear the Black and Gold, and for all of their support in growing me into the man, and Hawkeye, I am today.”
Jackson led the nation in interceptions this season with eight. He burst onto the scene in Iowa’s 55-24 drubbing of Ohio State when he picked J.T. Barrett off three times.
The All-American is projected to be the first corner off the board.
