Drake Jackson C Kentucky Draft Profile

Detroit Lions Signed as an undrafted free agent by Detroit Lions
Strengths
  • Has average height with a narrow base out of his stance. Needs to get stronger in his lower half to anchor at the point of attack.
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
  • Feisty, tough and plays with a competitive attitude.
  • Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
  • Awareness is above-average for his limited experience. Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid getting to and adjust at the second level.
Weaknesses
  • Not physically imposing and has average overall strength. Upper body gets over his feet too often and he easily loses his balance.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
  • Will punch at smaller defenders instead of latching on and is more of a mauler than mover in the running game. Can improve maintaining outside leverage when doubling the nose. Ducks his head and gets too upright, causing him to fall off second-level blocks.
  • A short-area blocker with limited range and doesn't consistently get to the second level. Will play undisciplined at times, especially in space. Lacks a finishing attitude.
  • Has only average measurable with limited arm length and no overpowering qualities.
