“Speed U” is what they are calling us now.

Former LSU corner Donte Jackson tied Tulane’s Parry Nickerson for the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.32) of the 2018 NFL Combine. The two New Orleans native’s went to high school just 20 minutes apart.

Jackson even had a bad start due to a cramped calf out of the gate; however, still managed to post a 4.32, which leads the Combine. LSU wideout D.J. Chark is currently fourth fastest with a time of 4.34.

Jackson is a projected late first or second round draft pick. He totaled 49 tackles and an interception in 2017.
