Of all places…Pittsburgh with two really promising Corners for 2020 draft. Junior Jason Pinnock I posted about before, but here is Senior Dane Jackson. These guys are really coached up well. pic.twitter.com/ChAE9Pwp8u

Pitt CB Dane Jackson is one of the CBs I’ll be keeping an eye on this season. He held his own against these talented Clemson WRs and made some really nice plays like this. pic.twitter.com/aXd8lmrST7

Camp outlook: As a redshirt senior, Jackson will be the elder statesman and should have a leadership role in a very deep, very experienced Pitt secondary.
Projected role: Jackson will start as long as he’s healthy, and he has been. He’s missed just two games over three seasons.
