GS: 0 | GP: 3 | Snaps: 35 Season in review: It was more or less a redshirt season for the 2012 fifth-round pick. Jackson was not activated for a game until Week 12 of the season. He played solely on special teams in his three games. Jackson's rookie season was then interrupted when he was suspended for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He made one more appearance, in the divisional-round win in Denver. Signature moment: Jackson made his first and only NFL tackle in Week 12 while covering a kick return. Stat that stands out: Zero -- snaps on defense for Jackson, who was drafted out of Div. I-FCS Cal Poly. Pro Football Focus grade: +0.5 on special teams. Outlook for 2013 and beyond: The Ravens felt strongly enough about Jackson's potential to keep him around even though he was rarely active. The 23-year-old is undersized -- generously listed at 5 feet 10 and 197 pounds -- and should benefit from a year in the team's strength program. Jackson ultimately projects as an inside cornerback in sub packages and, if he shows improvement, could potentially see time there in 2013. First, though, he will have to earn playing time on special teams, where he could be in the mix as a returner.
