Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants selected Notre Dame cornerback Bennett Jackson in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

With the No. 187 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Bennett Jackson, a cornerback out of Notre Dame, in the sixth round. Here are a few quick tidbits on the newest Giant.

  • Jackson attended Raritan High School in Hazlet, New Jersey. As a senior, he caught 40 passes for 729 yards and rushed 20 times for 350 yards. He also intercepted four passes on defense.
  • Following his career at Raritan, Jackson was rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and the No. 61 wide receiver in the nation. After being heavily recruited by Michigan State, Northwestern and Rutgers, Jackson chose to play wide receiver at Notre Dame.
  • After playing wideout as a freshman, Jackson converted to defensive back before his sophomore season.
  • As a junior, Jackson started all 13 games and recorded 65 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four interceptions and four pass break-ups -- all while playing the entire season with a torn labrum. Last year, he recored 64 tackles (five for a loss) one sack, one forced fumble, two interceptions and three pass break-ups.
  • In his senior season, Jackson was voted Notre Dame's special teams player of the year.
