NBA Comparison: Jonny Flynn

Strengths: Flashy point guard with explosiveness ... Capable of impacting the game both as a scorer and a distributor ... Feeds the post well ... Solid creator out of the pick and roll ... Excellent at penetrating and slithering through gaps in the defense ... Deceptive with the ball in his hands ... Doesn't make many mistakes with the ball ... Quality A/TO ratio displaying his efficency making decisions and valuing the ball ... Plays in a pro style offense at Notre Dame ... Despite a smaller stature he is a crafty finisher at the rim ... He's stronger than he looks and actively seeks out contact as he enters the paint ... Good on ball defender ... Can handle defending the pick and roll as well ... Reads the player he's guarding well ... Has quick hands that help him pick the pockets of his opponents ...

Weaknesses: At best he is only 6'1", and even with a 6'4.75 wingspan (8 foot standing reach) is on the small side... Older for his age group (will be 22 in September) ... Point guard skills and leadership need work ... Not great at creating easy baskets for teammates ... Better on the break than in half court ... Could stand to add a few more pounds to his frame (currently listed at 194 lbs) ... Can he withstand the physicality of the NBA and still play the same type of game he does in college ... Isn't always locked in as a defender ... Will lose focus when guarding off the ball ... Tends to be caught ball watching when his man isn't involved in the play ... Too much of a streaky shooter on his jump shots ... Struggled scoring this season when he became the focual point of the offense ...His three point percentage has dropped from 42 percent as a junior to 34 percent this year, and FG from 50% to 44%, (though his 80% FT shooting is decent) ... That significant statistical drop off is probably partially due to Jerian Grant leaving the team and teams focusing more of their defensive efforts on him ... Needs to develop into a better overall passer ... Has to show that he can handle going up against guards that are as quick as him and bigger as well ... Production trailed off in second half of season, how much of that had to do with a hamstring injury is the question ...

Outlook: Jackson is a tough-minded guard that excels in the pick and roll ... A solid passer and finisher, he can make it in the league if he proves that he has what it takes on defense ... He's an explosive leaper and scorer and will get looks in the first round if he enters this year's draft ...

Notes: Measured 6'1 (in shoes) 194 lbs, with a 6'4.75 wingspan and 8'0 reach at the 2013 Nike Hoop Summit ... 2016 All-ACC Second team ... 2015 ACC All-Tournament Second team ... 2013 McDonald's All-American ... 2013 Nike Hoop Summit member ...
