Adopt-a-Bronco:
Malik Jackson
Default Malik Jackson, DE, Tennesee

6'5", 285, 4.91 forty, Bench: 25



Strengths: Very good size and frame with a strong upper body and long arms. Very good quickness and agility for his size and is a naturally explosive player with good get-off speed. Jackson stays balanced through contact and keeps working to penetrate the pocket, playing with a good motor. He is stout at the point of attack and plays with good length and wrist/hand strength to secure tackles. Jackson has also shown the ability to rip the ball out of the grasp of ballcarriers with four career forced fumbles. Improved awareness and footwork to drop in space when needed. Versatile skill-set to play multiple positions on the defensive line and has experience playing inside and outside. Weaknesses: Plays too tall and allows himself to get upright off the snap. Needs to do a better job with leverage to win at the line of scrimmage, relying too much on his upper-body strength. Lean lower body and needs to improve his strength in his legs and thighs. Suspect body flexibility and tight hips. Not a natural bender and lacks fluid change of direction ability. Plays with inconsistent pad level and is often knocked backwards off the snap. Only average career production at the college level (13.0 career sacks). Still a bit raw in his development and needs to eliminate senseless penalties. Looks fatigued at times, struggling to finish plays, and conditioning might be an issue. NFL Comparison: Tim Crowder, Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Dane Brugle

Watched every snap he took.

High motor, great work ethic.

He is a great teammate as well. He cam to UT to play DE but our DTs were so few that he went in there and played well above his level ijn a position he wasn't all that comfortable with. He never once complained about it either.

Really good value pick here. 5th, 6th, 7th rounds if you can get a guy that can make the team and contribute you're ahead of the game. Not only will he make the team, but I think he gets on the field as a rotational DE and bumped inside to DT in certain situations. Two defensive lineman drafted, and two high motor guys. Definitely a pattern.

i love this pick! tweener type but in a very good way. can play end, can play tackle, can rush the passer, get in the backfield and stop the run. plus he's athletic as hell.

not to mention, outside of Marcus Nash we have pretty good luck with Tennessee players.

Love the UT rep!

We have put so many quakity players in the league. Too bad we blow now.

Malik was a lone bright spot in dark days of the program.

Also, watch for Justin Hunter after this year. If he heals up he is going to be an absolute monster.

So is Darick Rodgers but he is a massive tool.

What i like about this pick is his athleticism combined with his attitude make for the perfect player for Fox/Del Rio to take and have a really good chance of molding into a starter, and a good player in the future.

i think that Dooley is the right guy but people see his resume and think UT should have landed a high profile guy. people don't realize how bad UT was before Kiffin took over and they don't realize how much of a non fit Kiffin's players were for Dooley.

Sunseri and the new staff will be great for Dooley to get that defense straight.

It appears we are trying to go NY Giants here.... Get smaller, faster DT's, like rushing 2 DE's and 2 5 technique DE's. It might pan out.

Dooley has really not done anything to impress me. I will give him another year but we HAVE to win 8 games.

Derek Wolfe and Malik Jackson are ****ing excellent additions to this Dline. I get the weird feeling that Fox and Del Rio know what they're doing on defense. As a Broncos fan, that is a very eerie feeling to have. It's like vertigo.

All I remember about Crowder is him bowling over Roethlisberger, picking up the ball and sprinting to the end zone. Then he was gone.

All I remember about Crowder is always thinking about Clams when I heard his name.
