|Draft Prediction:||Second Round|
2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State
He is one of the top two or three interior linemen in this draft class. Very powerful and heavy-handed. Good girth and can anchor down well. Has enough upper body strength to simply overpower defenders if he makes a small mistake. Some throw around the word that he bends at the waist, but that appeared to be more of a stamina issue than a technique problem. Really good burst off the line.
Drives into his opponents. Really great balance for his size. Maintains a low center of gravity. A bit slow in recognizing twists. Quick enough to get to the second-level and lay down huge blocks on smaller defenders.
Aggressive in doses. Energy seems to ebb and flow at times later in games. May be better off losing 10 pounds.
Jackson projects as a mid to late second round option in the 2014 NFL Draft.
