Alonzo Jackson Profile

<b>Alonzo Jackson</b><br> Position: Defensive End<br> College: Florida State<br> Height: 6-4<br> Weight: 266<br> Hometown: Americus, Georgia

Quick, explosive, and a little undersized - the main characteristics of a Florida State defensive end and just what Alonzo Jackson is. Though he still has a ways to go before being considered a complete lineman, Jackson has the penchant for making plays behind the line of scrimmage.

Alonzo Jackson emerged as one of the best edge rushers in college football the last two years. The cat-quick defender wreaked havoc in the opposing backfield on a weekly basis. Recorded 125 tackles (72 solos) with 23 quarterback sacks and 33 stops behind the line of scrimmage during his career. His 23 sacks rank fifth on the school's career list. Only Darnell Dockett (47, 2000-02) and Ron Simmons (44, 1977-80) had more tackles for losses in FSU annals.
