2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Andrew Jackson, OG, Fresno State

Heading into his senior season, Andrew Jackson was a three-year starter, a two time All-WAC honoree and a first-team Academic All-American. After redshirting in 2006, the 6-6, 295 pound offensive lineman started his freshman campaign on the bench. That did not last long. Jackson started the final 11 games of that season at the right guard position and was a very valuable member of the special teams unit. His role expanded in 2008 and, in large part due to Jackson, the offense was vastly improved. The Bulldogs were third in the conference in rushing yards per game and the line only allowed 19 sacks on the season.

However, the best was yet to come as Jackson paved the way for a dynamic offense in 2009. Running back Ryan Mathews was the leading rusher in the nation and quarterback Ryan Colburn got great protection all year long. Jackson had high expectations following his All-Conference performance in 2009, but his senior year was marred by injuries.

Jackson is an interesting prospect. He has blocked three kicks during his collegiate career and he is certainly a quality special teams player and could even play some defensive tackle. At 6-6 and 295 pounds, he has the size to do it. However, he is better off on the other side of the ball and if it was not for his shortened senior season, Jackson would likely be considered a fourth round draft pick instead of a late rounder.
