Saturday started off with a bang for Oregon fans in the NFL draft. A number of Ducks were selected early in the fourth round starting off with receiver Troy Franklin heading to Denver to join Bo Nix.

Former Alabama and Oregon cornerback Khyree Jackson soon heard his name called in that same fourth round. The Minnesota Vikings drafted Jackson as the No. 108 overall pick in the draft.

Last season Jackson had 34 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions, 7 passes defended and 2 sacks. He earned First-Team All-Pac-12 honors for the Ducks.

The 6-foot-3, 197-pounder was a four-star recruit coming out of high school. Jackson ranked as the No. 41 overall player in the 2017 class. He was originally out of Maryland.
