Drake Jackson Scouting Report

"Linebacker in a DE that runs the arc in a flash but can be a liability at the poa with his lack of strength."

 

Strengths:

Long armed edge with a snap get off and open field speed. Runs the arc in a flash. Closes sideline to sideline. Experienced in space. Impressive motor.

 

Weaknesses:

Lacks play strength and he gets bullied at the point and pushed outside his arc. Potentially a liability vs the run.

 

Overall:

Athletic linebacker with a DE frame. Long armed with solid bend and can truly run. Chases down everyone and can maneuver through trash. First step quickness and speed are formidable but it's couched by his minimal play strength.
