Malik Jackson-Tennessee


Weight: 284 lbs.

Grade: 6.6 (Grading Scale)


Physically gifted prospect who possesses ideal length and plenty of athletic ability…shows some nice explosion out of his stance when asked to shoot gaps…can maintain a low pad level and uses his hands well to shed blocks…at his best when allowed to use his athletic ability in space…may be a better fit at DE than at DT…shows the ability to wash down the line and get in a position to make plays to the outside…Has some explosive power to his game and can overwhelm the OT at the point of attack with his bull rush…Has the strength necessary to set the edge against the run…could be a definite 34 DE prospect.


One directional athlete who will struggle to change directions quickly…doesn’t display natural flexibility…He must work on his technique when it comes to staying low through contact…too often he will pop up in his stance and allow himself to be easily blocked…Needs work on his hand usage if he hopes to be able to disengaged at the next level…Was forced to play out of position at Tennessee…USC transfer after their bowl ban.
