Scouting Report on Jackson Jeffcoat

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Tall, lean, long-limbed athlete with wide shoulders and a great frame. He spends most of his off-season playing basketball, so he fluctuates between football shape and basketball shape. When he focuses on football entirely, he's got the building blocks to have one of the best football bodies in the nation.
Needs Improvement: Needs to concentrate on football full-time in order to fill out reach ideal playing size, and the sooner he does this, the sooner he will impact the collegiate level.
Most Impressive: Watching his film, you can see he is used to sliding his feet in any direction, and he uses his superior foot agility to sidestep offensive linemen. He also has tremendous growth potential and could end up playing either weakside defensive end or strongside defensive end at the next level.
Conclusion: This physically gifted athlete could end up having an impact similar to that of Julius Peppers once he goes full-time on football.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
