44. Tre Jackson, OG (FSU)
Tre Jackson is one of the most athletic offensive linemen in this draft class. There is little doubt that he will be a good pass protector at the next level. Jameis Winston held on to the football for a long time, Jackson had extra blocking to do and he made it work.
Jackson is a really good run blocker too. He has the physical tool set, now he just has to sharpen his footwork and he’ll be a reliable starter in the NFL.
Jackson is 6-4 and 334 pounds. He ran a 5.52 second 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. At his pro day he had 20 reps on the bench press. I don’t think the measurable data there does him justice, he has great football strength.
There is a lot to like about this Florida State offensive guard. He should be a starter and therefore is a perfect value at 44.
