Evaluation

Jackson has the tools to be a defensive end in many schemes at the college level. With a great frame and quickness off the ball, he can be disruptive against the run and especially the pass, where it seems as if he hits another gear with a passer in sight. Jackson plays with good balance and can redirect in short spaces while using his hands well at times. He can improve on his overall technique against blockers while adding to his pass-rushing arsenal.
