H.S. Scouting Report

Power-5 Starter


Darrell Jackson Florida State Seminoles

Big-framed point-of-attack player that aces the eye test. Measured roughly 6-foot-4, 285 pounds midway through 12th-grade year. More importantly, has long arms and a wingspan that stretches nearly 6-foot-10. Very productive in one of the Peach State’s higher classification, totaling north of 100 tackles as a senior. Has been utilized primarily as a 4i, 3 and 2i in a traditional four-man front. Does a nice job of using a swat/swim move to maneuver his way into the backfield and create negative plays. Can change directions better than most his size and will work laterally down the line of scrimmage to make stops. Understands the value of leverage, but needs to improve overall pad level. Must also get better at snap anticipation if he wants to reach full potential. Should be viewed as a developmental interior defensive line prospect that can offer some value as a pass rusher. Will likely need a few years to get his body right, but has some of the tools required to be a multi-year contributor and possible impact player at the Power Five level.
