2020 NFL Combine: Offensive Tackle Prospects, Invites, What To Watch For

By

5. Austin Jackson, USC 6-6, 310 (2)

Why He’s Here On The List: He’s going to look the part. He’s got a great frame, tremendous athleticism, and he could end up working and playing anywhere on a line depending on what someone is going to want. While he’s hardly a finished product, he’ll move great, he should be quick, and he might be among the most undervalued prospects in first two rounds.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Just how much work does he really need? He’s managed to get by on being a good player without a whole ton of experience. A likely must have around the 50, a great workout could push him up into the late first round.

Bottom Line: He’s just scratching the surface, but be patient, live through the growing pains, and he just might be a special pick who goes right after the first wave of top tackles. It would be nice if he could bulk up just a wee bit, but give him a year or so and he’s your starting left tackle for the next decade.
