Cory Jackson
Position: FB
Class: 4Sr
School: Maryland
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-1
WT: 246
40 Time: 4.75
Biography: Part-time starter since his freshman season. Career rushing totals at Maryland include 17/46/2 the past four seasons. Also added 29/254 as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Positives: Hard-working, one-dimensional lead blocker who also excels on special teams. Blocks with a nasty attitude, works to finish assignments, and jolts defenders at the point of attack. Physical, squares into opponents and removes them from the action. Displays good blocking vision. Adequate short-yardage runner who keeps his feet moving on contact.

Negatives: Slows into blocks, which adversely affects his ability to finish them. Really best on the inside and cannot get around tackle and create room for ball-carriers.

Analysis: Jackson is a throwback lead blocker effective in his role. He must improve the details of his game, yet he has every opportunity to make an NFL squad as a second fullback/special teams player.

Projection: 7-FA
