Overview

Jackson has a chance to turn into a starting NFL guard with the addition of some needed bulk and strength. Could serve as a valuable backup in the meantime. Is a tough, hardnosed player who plays with maximum effort but isn't the type of lineman who can overwhelm opponents. Does a good job when matched up with quicker, gap penetrating defensive tackles but can be overpowered by the bull rush. Uses his quickness to get in position while run blocking and has some upside as a guy who can pull and lead and get to the second level.

Analysis

Strengths

Jackson's a smart player who displays good awareness. Can deal with defensive line movement and blitzers. Shows the ability to locate a target on the second level. Has a quick set and the feet to mirror pass rushers. Very comfortable when zone blocking. Displays the ability to get out and pull around the edge. Plays with a mean streak.

Weaknesses

Does not possess adequate bulk for the next level. Can give up sacks in pass protection when off balance. Needs to watch his pad level. Not a real mauler while run blocking and doesn't get a ton of movement. Could afford to sharpen up his combo blocking technique. Has some durability issues.
