The Bengals had to wait an extra year to see him in action, but William Jackson III is proving worth the patience.

Jackson is arguably the team’s best cornerback - and perhaps among the league’s top pass defenders.

Jackson, a first-rounder two drafts ago, possesses a unique combination of size and speed that had many believing he was a future No. 1 corner. He missed last season with a torn pectoral muscle.

He’s on his way to becoming just that. With Adam Jones getting older, it’s not a moment too soon either.
