Jackson is an intriguing, lefthanded-hitting catcher, who will be drafted more for his bat than his present defensive ability behind the plate. He improved his frame and arm strength this spring, though teams remain concerned that he may not be able to stick at catcher thanks to footwork concerns. At times he struggles receiving, leading to passed balls. Offensively, he has 60-grade raw power with an uppercut swing path and a pull-oriented approach. He's got above-average bat speed, but his swing can get long and some scouts worry about a hole in his swing inside on his hands. However, if he gets a mistake pitch, he will hit it a long way. Jackson's profile as a lefthanded hitting catcher in a class that's weak at the position could push him into the first five rounds if he can be signed out of his commitment to Florida.
