Pros: Jackson has impressed many scouts with his raw athleticism. Despite being 245 pounds, he still has very fluid hips, good hands, and excellent running ability. The big fullback busts through opponents with excellent strength, and he is still considered the top blocking full back in the class. Jackson is also very good on special teams.
Cons: Jackson’s biggest weakness is his pass blocking. He does not have a good punch when facing blitzing linebackers, and he sometimes look overwhelmed in the pocket. Jackson should be able to fix this, but right now, it is a glaring weakness.
Our Take: Jackson looks to become a very solid NFL player. He should see immediate playing time on special teams, and he could be a first year starter depending on the team that drafts him. Look for Jackson to not only be a good blocker, but also, a very solid receiver and runner.
