ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. has updated his “Big Board” of the top 25 NFL Draft prospects for April’s upcoming draft. Houston cornerback William Jackson III has landed himself a spot at #23 thanks to an impressive showing at the NFL Combine.

Kiper’s thoughts on Jackson from the article:

He has good length, long arms, and was simply much faster than many of us realized. Jackson ran the 40 in a blazing 4.37 in Indy and pushed himself up some boards. The key here is that his tape is solid, now the speed adds to the mix.
