Jackson is the younger brother of ex-Cubs prospect Brett Jackson (now in the Giants organization). Like his brother, Drew has excellent athleticism, and, in fact, is more athletic than his brother, a 2009 first-round pick. At 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, he has the ideal build for an infielder, rangy with room to gain strength. He has good hands and the best throwing arm on the West Coast, if not the country, a true 70 arm that he can unleash from different angles. Jackson lacks ideal shortstop foot speed but is capable at the position thanks to his arm. He hit just .184 in his first two seasons as a part-time player and missed the first 17 games in 2015 with a left hand injury. Nevertheless, he had his best season, batting .330/.396/.388. Jackson profiles as a utility infielder if his bat continues to develop, but his modest natural timing and feel for hitting limit his offensive upside. His arm strength will tempt teams to switch him to the mound if he struggles at the plate in the minor leagues.
