The Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins recently had representatives visit the University at Buffalo campus to meet with quarterback Tyree Jackson, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.
Jackson is projected among the top 10 quarterbacks available and could be a mid-round choice. He has been working with quarterback consultant Jordan Palmer in California, but also has spent time on campus.
At UB's Pro Day in mid-March, Jackson said he was focusing on showing improved footwork.
“When I got to California, what I really wanted to improve was not swaying. I’m a long guy, I have a lot of moving parts. I’ve really cleaned that up a lot. I feel very confident now when I throw and I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about it.
“I think when you transition from college to the NFL there’s a lot of new play action, a lot of different things,” Jackson said. “So just to show you can learn those things and you can perform them is what I was trying to accomplish today.”
The #Lions and #Dolphins both paid Buffalo QB Tyree Jackson a visit on campus recently, I’m told. A guy with rare physical traits that teams have gotten to spend a lot of time with at Senior Bowl, combine and pro day, but clearly some intrigued to dig deeper.
