D’Eryk Jackson Scouting Report
D’Eryk Jackson has a serious nose for the ball. When he tackles opponents, it looks closer to someone getting hit by an ice cream truck. Hes an extremely good tackler, even in the open field. Jacksons reaction time and hands are also excellent as shown at 01:57 mark in the video below with a pick he nearly brought back. He appears to have most of the qualities you want in a linebacker and will likely be starting in a few years. (DT Yates)
