833. . . . Drake Jackson, Kentucky. . player

Jackson could be great value for the Philadelphia Eagles offense.

University of Kentucky offensive lineman Drake Jackson will be an excellent center in the NFL. That’s not all though. He also has the talent to play both guard spots if needed.

At six-foot-two and 295-pounds, he has great size and athletic ability, to be a steal on day three of the draft. The Philadelphia Eagles would be lucky to land the Kentucky product. He could be a great get moving forward.

Built with a thick base to help keep his quarterback clean, the former Wildcat is a road grader with excellent feet. He is quicker than fast but has the ability to block in space and lead the way in the run game.

Jackson has the aggressive nature coaches covet and the raw strength to help bully opposing defenders. A nasty presence for the offense, he is the type to set the tone anytime he puts his helmet on.

The front office should be in the market for a Jason Kelce successor. Drake Jackson has all the tools to be that player.
