Player No. 1

Trishton Jackson - WR

Trishton Jackson was hyped pretty early in training camp this summer, and for good reason. The dude was balling out, making highlight reel grabs, and running crisp routes.

He also showed a good comprehension of the offense, and it was reported that he was staying after practice to work exclusively with Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn.

Jackson then had a major scare. He went down after going up and making a grab, and the team feared he tore an ACL. He had to be helped off the field by trainers, and things really didn't look good. It turns out that while there was no structural damage to his knee, he did need a few weeks to rest up and heal.

It was a blessing that he avoided catastrophe, but the time missed really killed Jackson's momentum and was a big reason the team figured they could get him on the practice squad. While Jackson did end up on the practice squad, it doesn't mean that's where he'll stay.

Teams like the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans got a good look at Jackson during the joint practice sessions and could definitely decide to sign the talented young receiver to their squads at some point this season. That could really be said about any team, as Jackson has shown the potential to be an active and productive player on Sundays.
