Overall, Drake Jackson has the ability to win with speed around the edge, with excellent bend throughout his body. This ability will be widely valued, but his inability to convert speed to power and be a bit one-dimensional as just a speed rusher works against him.

He needs to get stronger at the point of attack. The changing of weights zapped his pop/strength, so it could be realistic that he could regain more pop. I also appreciate his overall movement skills in space.

Questions about Jackson on early rush downs will be fair as he moves forward in the NFL — especially early on — but his ability to corner and stress tackle’s pass sets are among some of the top in this class.
