There are several traits that an interior lineman must possess. They have to be tough as nails, given that they’re in the trenches on every play. In addition to their toughness, they have to display a level of quickness out of their stance. They have to be in sync with the quarterback. Drake Jackson, a four-year starter for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, is an interior lineman that possesses all of the above traits.

In this summer scouting profile, we’ll take a look at how Drake Jackson got to this point, as well as breaking down some film on how his abilities will translate into the NFL. Finally, we’ll look at some of his competition in the 2021 NFL Draft.
