Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Jackson wins with all-out hustle, second and third effort and will contribute in the NFL.
  • He has an excellent motor and shows the stamina to last deep into the fourth quarter.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space. Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau.
  • He possesses an intriguing blend of size and movement skills. Jackson has good length, wide shoulders, and long arms, and Jackson has room to add weight.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s not a guy who can be put on the edge every down and be expected to consistently create pressure.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Jackson is so eager to get upfield that Jackson often abandons responsibilities against the run.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
