Player Overview

A 42-game starter who earned All-ACC first-team accolades in 2013 and consensus All-American honors as a senior, Jackson is arguably the most accomplished right guard in the draft.

Despite his reputation and NFL build, Jackson could struggle to enjoy the same success at the next level unless he learns to play with greater technique. He too often relies on his natural gifts and must prove he can consistently compete at the highest level.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part with a massive frame, thick legs, a big bubble and wide hips. Surprisingly quick, especially given his size, coming off the ball. Good burst to get to linebackers at the second level and the agility to turn and seal defensive linemen in the running game. Uses his mass and leg drive to easily plow opponents off the ball when he keeps his pad level low. Durable.

WEAKNESSES: Relies on mass and strength to occupy blockers. Stops his feet on contact. Strong enough to latch and control collegiate-level opponents but if he doesn't shuffle laterally or allows opponents to get into his chest, he can be beaten with quickness or power. Has the short-area quickness to get to the second level but doesn't have great balance or change-of-direction agility to adjust to moving targets.
