BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a junior and preceded to win All-Conference honors the following two years. Posted 41/5.5/2 as a senior after 51/7/2.5 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Explosive run-stuffer in the middle of the line. Quick off the snap, plays with leverage and was consistently focused on by opponents. Flashes power, gets push up the field and is forceful in the middle of the line. Tough, yet also plays smart football.
NEGATIVES: Easily locked up at the point and does not display techniques shedding blocks. Marginal pass-rushing skills.
ANALYSIS: Built low to the ground, Jackson's quickness off the snap and ability to get leverage on opponents gives him a decided advantage. Has potential at nose tackle or in a system which places him next to a wide-bodied lineman.
