Jackson competed against Robert Ayers, Derek Wolfe, Jeremy Beal, Ben Garland, Jamie Blatnick, and Jason Hunter for the starting defensive end role in his first training camp. Head coach John Fox named him the back-up right defensive end behind fellow rookie Derek Wolfe.

Jackson was given an overall rating of 86.4, which ranked 17th among all qualifying interior defensive linemen, according to Pro Football Focus.

When asked about his Jaguars' prediction in 2018, Jackson said, "I'm callin' it, 16-0." As long as we stay healthy and do what we're supposed to do, we shouldn't think we'll beat us.

Jackson fired rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in the 31–12 victory over Week 4 against the New York Jets, his first firing of the season. He was suspended due to his poor quality of play prior to his Week 11 match against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Without Jackson's presence, the Jaguars lost by a margin of 20–16 to the Steelers.

In the 20-3 road loss, he made a season-high 1.5 sacks in the regular-season finale against the Houston Texans the following week.
