JC Jackson Meets With Raiders
The former Maryland cornerback JC Jackson met with the Raiders on Monday, but no word has been released regarding the visit. The Raiders cornerbacks corps was among the worst in the NFL in 2017 and they have lost three of their four top cornerbacks from a season ago.

Jackson ran a 4.46 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, which ranked as the 11th best time among the corners. Jackson started 23 games for Maryland the past two seasons developing into the team's top cover corner.
