Cal corner Kameron Jackson tweets he’s taking early NFL leap

As the deadline for eligible players to make the early jump to the NFL fast approaches, a player from a Pac-12 program has (surprisingly) pulled the trigger on a pro career.

In a tweet posted to his Twitter account Tuesday, cornerback Kameron Jackson announced that he would be leaving Cal and making himself available for the May NFL draft.

“Did a lot of thinking over these past couple weeks. My mind is made up! I’ve decided to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft,” the junior wrote.

Jackson did not even earn honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors in 2013… or 2012… or 2011. The junior, who’s listed at 5-9, 175-pounds on the Bears’ official website, did have three interceptions in a game his true freshman season, so there’s that.

    I too have decided to declare for the NFL Draft, at 39yo 6’3″ 250lb, I feel as if I have as much of a chance of being drafted to play DB in the NFL as Mr. Jackson does.

    That’s like when browner left OSU and went undrafted. Worked out for him in the end, but he atleast had the talent.

    Everybody thought little Nickell Robey was not going to be any good…look at how that turned out. The undrafted rookie out of USC came into Buffalo, and has turned into one of the best slot corners in the game. PFF had him ranked #1 slot cb in the NFL. He is 5-7, 155 lbs.
