Panthers grab CB Chevis Jackson off Waivers

Old news to some who are at FanFest, but the Panthers grabbed a CB of the waiver wire this morning, Chevis Jackson. A 4th year journeyman from LSU who had 2 solid but unspectacular years in Atlanta where he racked up 3 starts in 33 games, 52 tackles, 1 INT and 1 sack. He split his time last season with NE, JAX and DEN, our old friend John Fox released him late yesterday, and Hurney snapped him up. He was defending Clowney on some downs during Fan Fest today.

Here is the ESPN scouting report on him:

Jackson has been a situational backup corner over the past two seasons. He is a good-sized corner with adequate speed but has a good understanding of how to play the position. He will play within his limitations and knows how to play the angles to avoid getting into too many speed contests as a cover corner. He is big and powerful enough to use his hands to jam or reroute receivers and can be a strong tackler in one-on-one situations. He is a little stiff in the hips and tends to look a bit choppy when flipping to turn and run with receivers on deep routes. He shows good route recognition and can read the quarterback's eyes to get a jump on the ball, but lacks great ball skills when in position to make a play

He does have some starting experience and might be serviceable, but he will not be the big signing everyone is looking for. He may be a stop gap measure until we see what we have with Burney and other youngsters waiting in the wings.
