Adoree' Jackson's lifelong dream became a reality Thursday night: He's going to be a video game star in Madden.
The former USC cornerback was drafted by the Titans in the first round, and while he's certainly happy to be in the NFL, he tweeted his excitement about being in the popular video game as well. After all, since EA Sports discontinued its NCAA Football franchise, he's had to wait to become an animated version of himself.
That's crazy I'm really gonna be on Madden

Jackson will probably be a popular player in the video game. His explosiveness makes him the exact type of player people love to use in the video game. He even said himself after being drafted how versatile he can be.
“I can do more than one thing on the defense — I can play outside, I can play inside. I can also return," Jackson said, via the Titans' official website. “And if I am needed on offense you can throw me out there whenever. I am just thankful the coaches at Tennessee believed in me and picked me up. I am fired up to go put a helmet on, put a jersey on, strap up the cleats and go out to practice right now."
The 5-foot-10, 186-pound athlete did just that at USC.
