Gabe Jackson, OG, Miss. St.
Gabe Jackson might not be a player in one of the flashiest positions today, but that does not mean that Jackson is not one of the top offensive talents at the 2014 Senior Bowl.
The 6’3″, 339 pound guard is a physical freak and made his name by mauling SEC defensive linemen and getting into the second level during his entire college career.
After redshirting as a true freshman in 2009, Jackson, who is 6-foot-3 and 339 pounds, started all 52 games in his Bulldogs career. During that Bulldogs career Jackson became one of the best guards in the nation, and he has a chance to be the first guard selected in the 2014 draft.
He is known mostly for his work as a run blocker, and NFL Media draft analyst Charles Davis called him “an absolute road-grader” during NFL Network’s coverage of Senior Bowl practices.
“If you’re looking for a guard, looking for a guy who can play, I think Gabe Jackson is someone you’d better be looking at,” Davis said.
Protecting highly regarded QB’s Derek Carr, Jimmy Garoppolo and David Fales in the Senior Bowl game today as well as doing his usual work as a run blocker, look for the holes Jackson opens up on the line. That is all you will need to see to notice why he is one of the top offensive line talents in the 2014 draft class.
