Former Crimson Tide DB Eddie Jackson: Alabama training camp ‘harder’ than Chicago Bears’

A rookie coming off of a season-ending injury takes part in his first NFL training camp. Pretty difficult, right?

Eddie Jackson says nope.

The former standout in Alabama’s secondary went through quite a few fall camps under Nick Saban. And after a couple weeks of Chicago Bears training camp, the safety has a clear answer for which is tougher, according to Chicago Bears Radio Network reporter Zach Zaidman.

Jackson spent the latter half of his final season at Alabama on the sidelines after breaking his leg in October. The injury caused him to fall to an extent in the draft, and the Bears selected him in the fourth round.

Healthy now, he’s getting some run with the first team in practice, which has been a good learning experience for him as well.

That’s at least two marquee players this week who have said their time in the SEC has helped them significantly in their transitions to the NFL. After his first preseason game this week, former LSU running back Leonard Fournette said the speed of the game was easier to adjust to after his time in the SEC.
