Jackson is a versatile defender who can play inside or outside on the defensive line. He has outstanding size and a quick burst off the line. He's strong at the point of attack and sheds blocks cleanly to make plays in the backfield. He has the quickness to beat the opposition off the edge or to dominate with his strength and technique

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||Kansas City will be transitioning to a 3-4 defensive scheme and will need to find a big defensive end who can handle a two-gap role. Glenn Dorsey is not a good fit for a 3-4 scheme and it will be interesting to see what this team does with him.|
