With the 239th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills select cornerback Dane Jackson out of the University of Pittsburgh.

Jackson was a Second-Team All-ACC selection this past season in Pittsburgh after registering 43 combined tackles, 12 passes defended, one interception and 0.5 sacks. In his four-year collegiate career with the Panthers, Jackson picked up 149 total tackles with 39 passes defended, four interceptions, 1.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries.

The 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback was just the second defensive player taken by the Bills in the 2020 draft, joining second round defensive end A.J. Epenesa as the only defenders selected this weekend. He joins a defensive backs room that will feature cornerbacks Tre'Davious White, Josh Norman, Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson and Cam Lewis.
