Jonathan Jackson School: Oklahoma
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 245 40: 4.65 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who posted 37/10/8 as
a senior. Burst onto the scene as a sophomore
when he totaled 56/12/6.
Positives: Athletic collegiate
defensive end who projects nicely to outside
linebacker in a 34 defense. Disciplined, displays
good instincts and makes plays in all directions.
Breaks down well, rarely off his feet and moves
laterally with speed. Plays with excellent pad
level, keeps his feet moving and quickly alters
his angle of attack. Gives top hustle, fast off the
edge and effective in space.
Negatives: Lacks top
first step quickness. Easily handled at the point
by a single blocker or taken out by tight ends.
Analysis: After an outstanding sophomore campaign,
Jackson's play seemingly leveled off the
past two seasons. Fell out of favor with scouts
yet a legitimate prospect whose athleticism gives
him a good degree of upside potential.
