My #1 defensive lineman...but what do I know:
While Brian Orakpo (DE), Everette Brown(DE), and B.J. Raji (DT) are getting all the attention, Tyson Jackson simply makes his team better. This bull-rushing, run stuffing, passing lane-clogging DE doesn't simply have intangibles...he is intangible.
According to Dictionary.com, intangible means: existing only in connection with something else, as the goodwill of a business.
While his natural abilities and numbers make it inexplicable why he has been absolutely integral to the Bayou Bengals success, the "goodwill" of the LSU Tigers defense makes it incontrovertible. Put this guy on a solid defensive line with a DT that takes up space, he will put an OT into the pocket quick. Jackson is versitile enough to play up and down the line in a 4-3, or DE in a 3-4. Strong, fast-enough, and always at the right place at the right time, he's exactly the kind of FOOTBALL player any quality organization should want.
Tyson hopes to be a teacher, loves Rocky movies, and always knows his job on the field...ALWAYS. He understands his containment responsibilities, flashes the ability to shed blocks and make the play, has good initial quickness off the snap and has a good repertoire of pass rush moves.
While he lacks great downfield speed and burst of prototypical pass rushers, he has good lateral quickness and hand technique to disengage from blocks and make the play in the backfield or downfield.
