D’Shawn Jamison continues to prove he’s an NFL talent

We should be giving a ton of credit to the defensive back duo of Barron and senior cornerback D’Shawn Jamison coming out of this game. Barron and Jamison are two of the most consistent defensive backs so far this season, especially in terms of their production in pass coverage.

Let’s talk about Jamison first.

The fifth-year corner and special teams weapon had one of his most well-rounded games of the season thus far. Jamison finished up this game with two forced incompletions, one interception, one tackle for loss, and three combined tackles.

Jamison snagged his second interception of the season on a deep ball from quarterback Davis Beville. He played that ball extremely well and got his head turned with his body in position to bring down the interception to prevent Oklahoma from getting their first and only deep ball connection of the game.

The ability that Jamison put on display in the last two games to play the ball in the air and make the necessary adjustments with his body position is uncanny. He is pretty clearly the best and most reliable corner in pass coverage that Texas has in the mix this season.

In the last two games, Jamison now has nearly a half-dozen forced incompletions, one interception, three pass breakups, and two stops. He’s playing some of the best football of his career of late, and that should help boost his NFL Draft stock in the very near future.
