Jackson officially signed his rookie contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 18th overall selection of the 2020 NFL Draft, Jackson possesses the athleticism and frame to push for an immediate starting role in Miami. The team does have a serviceable option available in Julien Davenport, though, in the event that Jackson would benefit from time to develop. In any case, the Dolphins no doubt consider Jackson the left tackle of the future, whether or not he garners a starting gig immediately as a rookie.
