BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who played with the first team the past two seasons. Senior-year totals included 25/4.5/2 after 36/8/4.5 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Pass-rushing college defensive end with limited size and speed. Plays with good pad level, fights hard with his hands to get off blocks, and quickly changes direction. Chases the action to get involved and plays with good balance.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top first-step quickness, does not show a burst to the action, and handled at the point by opponents. Marginal instincts and slow locating the ball.
ANALYSIS: Jackson comes off a disappointing senior campaign in which more was expected of him. His best opportunity at the next level could come as a situational pass-rusher.
