Report: Iowa CB Josh Jackson visiting Bills

The Buffalo Bills are scheduling a pre-draft visit with Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Jackson is the third cornerback who is reportedly part of the list of college prospects, which the NFL limits to 30 per team, with whom the Bills are meeting at One Bills Drive. The others are LSU's Donte Jackson and Ohio State's Denzel Ward.

The 6-foot, 196-pound Jackson is considered one of the top cornerbacks in the draft, with a nice combination of size and athleticism to go along with tremendous instincts. He led the nation last season with eight interceptions. Five came against Big Ten opponents Ohio State and Wisconsin, and he returned two for touchdowns.

Besides excellent ball skills, Jackson has impressed scouts with his anticipation of routes. The biggest knock on him, though, is the fact he has made only 14 career college starts, which raises questions about whether what he did in 2017 is a true indication of sustainable production.

Various media reports have the Bills holding pre-draft visits with 11 players so far. The final day for all clubs to have them is April 18.
