Biography: Jackson is coming off a solid senior season at Syracuse, though his limited offensive abilities may hinder his shot at being drafted. Jackson has an NBA body and is physical enough to play at the next level. He averaged nearly 36 minutes and rarely showed any fatigue down the stretch during games. That could be attributed to losing weight before the season, making Jackson more versatile and giving him more energy. Jackson never averaged more than 26.3 minutes during the previous three seasons and made a point to get in better shape. His averages of 13.1 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior were both career highs. Jackson focused on improving his rebounding skills after his junior season, leading to a spike in his numbers. Though he's not very athletic despite the drop in weight, Jackson can finish strong around the basket and is strong enough to muscle his way inside of defenders. Teams won't draft Jackson based simply on his offense, meaning he could become a solid role player off an NBA bench to spell the big men and provide a defensive presence. If he can keep up his energy, shine during predraft workouts and prove he's capable of keeping his weight down, Jackson could warrant a second-round pick for a team in need of a big body.
