6. Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson

Last Year: 3

Eddie Jackson is down just a little bit. Some fans would tell you that he should be down more but that mostly comes down to box score scouting. Yes, there was a breakdown against Atlanta and a few throughout the year, but the reality is that aside from Kyle Fuller, Jackson was the only mainstay in the group.

Kindle Vildor, Duke Shelley, and Jaylon Johnson were all inexperienced and Tashaun Gipson was with the team for the first year. Jackson is responsible for making all of them look better, and at times, it makes him look worse.

So, that value is why he still sits at number six. However, it is fair that he was not quite at his all-pro level last season and that with a little more ball production fans can forgive a miss here and there. Overall this should be as low as Jackson falls, and with continuity, you are hoping he will still rise for 2022.
