As the New England Patriots enter 2020 with a new look under center, the defense looks to remain a key strength to the teams success post Tom Brady.

On Instagram Tuesday, cornerback JC Jackson reminded fans Stephon Gilmore isn’t the only Patriots corner looking to have a big year defending the pass.

“More focus than ever”, Jackson wrote in an Instagram post that contained two workout photos.

An undrafted free agent out of Maryland, Jackson had a breakout sophomore season in 2019.

Jackson worked his way up the depth chart to start alongside Gilmore.

In 16 regular season games and the wild card round, Jackson did not give up a single touchdown and logged five interceptions with six pass breakups.

Last month, Pro Football Focus named Jackson the Patriots most underrated player.

According to PFF, “since 2018, he has been targeted 29 times 20 or more yards downfield, on those plays, he has allowed just three receptions compared to six interceptions and 10 forced incompletions.”

Jackson will enter 2020 in the final season of his three-year undrafted rookie deal.
