Jerry is an explosive interior force who generates a quick first step and creates havoc in the backfield. He has good size, but it's his quickness that makes him stand out. He uses his hands and speed effectively and is able to gain leverage instantly. He does a nice job with double teams by disengaging and flowing to the ball. He plays a little too upright, which hurts him when defending the run.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||This was need pick since the team didn't re-sign mammoth DT Grady Jackson and they lack enough quality talent inside of their front four. Jerry should compete for serious playing time right away.|
