Marquis Jackson

School: Portland State
Position: DE
Bio: Totals last season at Portland State included 36 tackles/10.5 tackles for loss/7.5 sacks. Played the prior two years at Texas Southern winning all-Conference honors after each campaign. Junior totals of 2011 included 50/18.5/6 after 61/16/7 as a sophomore, when he also broke up six passes.
Positive: One time highly rated defensive front seven prospect who regressed the past two years. Quick off the snap, displays terrific movement skills, and explosive at the point of attack. Plays with good pad level, works his hands throughout the action, and fluid moving in every direction. Slides laterally to make plays, shows ability dropped off the line of scrimmage, and relatively athletic. Natural pass rusher who quickly gets up the field, bends off the edge and attacks ballcarriers. Plays faster than his listed 40 time.
Negative: Didn't play with a sense of urgency in 2012. Easily taken from the action by a single blocker or controlled at the point. Possesses a marginal closing burst.
