Ravens rookie Asa Jackson has agreed to do an interview with Baltimore Beatdown via email. Jackson comes from a small school, Cal Ploy, and coming into the NFL as a mid round draft pick has got to be quite the experience for the young man.

I have some questions ready to ask him but I also wanted to get a better idea of what our readers here at The Beatdown would like to know about Jackson and his experience at the NFL level so far. So please take the time to think of some interesting and creative questions for the rookie corner to answer. I will pick out the best five or so to go along with the questions I have already prepared for him. If all goes well, hopefully we can maintain a good relationship with the Ravens newest corner and do more interviews in the future.

Jackson seemed truly excited about one of his first opportunities to interact with the fans of his new team. "I would love to do the interview! Sounds amazing to be able to interact with the fans. Just email me the questions and I will respond to them asap. Can't wait!" -Asa Jackson

Here is an overview on Jackson from NFL.com and you can read all about him at www.asajackson.com.

Overview

Jackson is a four-year starter from Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. While there are a limited amount of prospects out of SLO in the past few years, Jackson projects to be the best. He has strong footwork and understands how to cover in man. The level he has been displaying his skills could hurt him, but there is little denying his speed and athletic ability give him a great shot to compete at the next level, and the potential factor in his game could affect his value from a mid-round pick to even higher.

Analysis

Strengths

While he has a history of getting beat from time to time, Jackson has been a productive corner for years. He is effective in the run game and has the instincts to make plays on the ball in both the run and pass game. He isn't the most physical corner, but he displays great range to recover when getting beat and almost always shows up around the ball.

Weaknesses

Jackson will be knocked for playing at a small school, but he has shown the ability to cover NFL talent within the conference over the years. He can struggle at times in his back pedal and will likely not be an option to play right away at the next level.

So in the comments section below please list any questions that you would like me to ask Mr.Jackson. I will try and do my best to get answers to all relevant questions. If there are several questions about a similar topic I will try and combine them into one question that covers all areas. I will leave this post up for 24 hours before stopping taking questions and putting together the email. Thanks to all who participate!
