NFL Draft 2016: William Jackson visits Raiders, Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens and Oakland are both teams that could use some serious help in the secondary and with the NFL Draft closing in on us, they should likely look into the possibility of finding that player early on.

This might be why they brought in Houston cornerback William Jackson III for a visit.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle and National Football Post, Jackson took a visit to the Ravens some time last week and then visited the Raiders on Tuesday. This could end up being a good meeting for the cornerback as he looks to get into the NFL later this month.

Jackson has proven that he can play in the NFL and he certainly has the right look of a great cornerback. He has also proven that he plays the ball very well and can move all over the field.

During the 2015 season, William Jackson III led the country with 23 pass deflections. He also recorded five of his eight career interceptions during the season.

This could be a great move for either the Ravens or the Raiders to make, it is just a matter of where they will actually be able to take him.
