The Pac-12 rings its bell up to four draft picks so far in the 2017 NFL Draft. USC Trojans cornerback Adoree’ Jackson was picked 18th by the Tennessee Titans.

Jackson also hasn’t left USC entirely yet. He’s getting his degree right now and has taken a few classes.

Although Jackson is preparing for his next steps before entering the league, he hasn’t left USC entirely just yet — in fact, he’s still taking classes on campus. After someone asked him on Twitter why he was still attending classes, Jackson said Tuesday that he’s trying to earn his degree

Jackson’s primary capability is his playmaking. He can return kicks and punts, intercept football, and catch and run on offense as well.

"I feel like I can do a lot of things," Jackson said. “I’m a playmaker. Punt the ball to me, kick return, interception, pick up a fumble, create a fumble, put me on offense and I’ll take a bubble [screen] somewhere. I just make plays.”

Jackson joins John Ross III (to the Cincinnati Bengals), Christian McCaffrey (to the Carolina Panthers) and Solomon Thomas (to the San Francisco 49ers) as the four Pac-12 picks in the top 20 of the NFL Draft.
