Sonny Dykes and the California Golden Bears will be losing one of their more talented players from the defensive side of the ball as defensive back Kameron Jackson declared on Tuesday for the 2014 NFL Draft:

 

This should come as no surprise as, despite the team’s lackluster season, the 5-9, 175-pound Jackson has been standing out to NFL scouts for the last two seasons. He had an impressive performance in the 2012 upset over UCLA and was consistent once again this year.

In his collegiate career, Jackson has tallied 75 tackles, nine pass break ups, and one fumble recovery in the 30 games that he’s played.

Most draft experts at this point have Jackson pegged as possibly a late-first round pick and that could improve even further with some good workouts leading up to the event.

The junior should be a hot commodity for a lot of teams that desperately need help in pass coverage.
