Pick (Overall): 35 (242)
A classic over-achieving defensive end, Jackson combines solid instincts with good technique and overall strength to make plays in the running game. He got on the radar of NFL scouts with a senior season that included 25 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks in 12 games.
Jackson has only marginal burst off the snap, rarely forcing the quarterback to alter his throw. Considering he quickly developed into a starter for Kansas State after a successful tour at Fort Scott Community College, there is some upside here worthy of development.
