Strengths: Has a big frame and very good bulk?A powerful player with a good bull rush?Holds his own versus the running game and not much gets past him?Athletic in the short area and can come off blocks?Can probably play nose guard in the 3-4 scheme...Shows some versatility and possibly under tackle in a 4-3 Cover-2 defense?Plays with a very good motor when he wants to.

Weaknesses: Needs to lose some weight to gain more quickness if he is going to play defensive end in the NFL?Needs to develop a better repertoire of pass-rush moves?Sometimes looks sluggish due to not being in peak physical condition.

Thoughts: I really like Tyson Jackson and I think his versatility is a big plus for him?If he has a big 2007 season he could be a top-10 pick...Needs to take better care of his body and have a good showing at the Combine if he wants that to happen.

Player Comparison: Mike Rucker.
