Pitt CB Dane Jackson Invited to NFL Combine



Pitt cornerback Dane Jackson has been invited to the 2020 NFL Combine, the league announced on Friday.

Jackson, a 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback from Coraopolis, Pa., will be the lone Panthers’ representative at the combine in Indianapolis later this month.

Jackson was a three-year starter for Pitt at cornerback, making 41 starts for the Panthers from 2016-19. He finished his Pitt career with 148 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, four interceptions, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 43 passes defended and two touchdowns.

The Panthers have just one player at the combine for the second straight year. Running back Qadree Ollison was the lone Pitt invitee in 2019 before being selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. Seven Panthers participated in 2018.

Jackson has been given a fourth- to sixth-round grade by, but saw his stock rise after an impressive performance in the week of practice leading up to the Senior Bowl.

This year, the combine will be held from Feb. 23 to March 2 Lucas Oil Stadium and adjacent Indiana Convention Center.

There is one other senior coming out of Pitt that I think NFL General Managers should take interest in and that’s Kylan Johnson. He came to the program from Florida and made an immediate impact for the Panthers. I hope he gets a shot at competing to make an NFL roster as a late round draft pick or as a free agent. He played well in the short time here as a part of the Pitt football program.
