2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ALARIC JACKSON: Iowa, 6055 318 5.40. Four-year starter, Detroit, MI. Earned All Big 10 honors three straight years, including first-team in 2020. Started at left tackle right off the bat as a redshirt freshman and never looked back. He paired with current Tampa Bay right tackle Tristan Wirfs to create a formidable duo on the outside for a couple seasons. Early on, Jackson was considered the better of the two before Wirfs’ athletic tools took over during his development. He is a powerful and physical player who has flashed dominant stretches over his career. His lower body mechanics need to be cleaned up and there may be an issue with his length as an exterior pass blocker, but he should fit into a backup role with the potential of being a starter down the road. Heavy-contact blocker that can play the power game and create an enforcer’s mentality with his ability to overwhelm his man. Excellent grip strength. Can render a defender completely ineffective when he gets that inside position and feet underneath his hips with good knee bend. Can anchor himself well against a big bull rush. Uses his wide frame to create extra space between him and a pass rusher. Can turn his torso and long-arm up the edge. Recovers well and will always be able to call on his natural power on the move. Foot speed and balance is inconsistent. Doesn’t adjust well on the outside against speed. Will overextend and show his numbers to the ground. Arm length is an issue and will need to be hidden with more consistent attention to his footwork and torso positioning. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 1/2, BP-20, 10-1.87).
