Tyson Jackson Scouting Report:

LSU's Tyson Jackson is a big defensive end who could potentially play defensive tackle as well in the NFL. At his size, he's an every-down player who holds up exceptionally well against the run yet is still a solid pass rusher. He also has good strength, has a solid motor, and plays with a little bit of a mean streak.

Jackson is quick for his size, and comes off the edge surprisingly well. He has a nice long wing span that he uses to keep defenders from getting inside on him. He does have a tendency at times, though, of playing too high and letting blockers get into his chest.

He does have a lot of experience as a starter, has good leadership skills, and has been durable throughout his college career. As well as fitting in as either a left end or an under tackle in a 4-3 defense, Jackson would be ideal playing end in a 3-4 set.
