    JONAH JACKSON
    Transfer guard Jonah Jackson made the most of his opportunity with the Buckeyes, rising over 100 spots over the course of the season after starting with an average selection of 186.68. As of March 6th, Jackson has a mean selection of 83.86.

    Most of Ohio State's offensive line called Jackson the best lineman on the team. That sentiment has carried over to the draft with many experts calling him the draft's No. 1 offensive guard.

    SKULL SESSION: JONAH JACKSON AND KJ HILL ARE DRAFT SLEEPERS, HOW JUSTIN FIELDS IS PRACTICING WHILE QUARANTINED, AND THE STATUS OF AN NCAA VIDEO GAME

    SLEEPERS OF THE DRAFT.
    Ohio State produced two of the best overall players in the draft, but it also looks like they've produced two of the most underrated, according to Pro Football Focus.

    1. G JONAH JACKSON, OHIO STATE

    He may not have the ideal body type or the quickest feet or the most powerful frame, but Jonah Jackson is a broken record in pass protection. He ends more pass pro reps at the line of scrimmage than any other guard in the draft class. His short sets are impeccable, and he’s so quick to get his hands on guys and lock them up. Jackson won 58% of his reps in the one-on-ones in Mobile despite splitting his time between all three interior positions.

    You'd think NFL decision-makers would have figured out that it generally pays to just go ahead and pick the Buckeye when all else is equal. I mean, we did this with Michael Thomas and Terry McLaurin already. But maybe they just need a little nudge.

    KNOCKDOWN KING
    Jackson took over as Ohio State’s starting left guard from his first practice as a Buckeye, and he thrived immediately in his first game in Ohio Stadium. In Ohio State’s season opener against Florida Atlantic, Jackson was credited with a whopping nine knockdown blocks, the most among all Buckeye offensive linemen in that game and the highest count of his career.

    A few of those knockdowns:



    Jackson’s nastiness and power continued to be on display all season long. One standout example came in the following clip from Ohio State’s second game in the season against Cincinnati; while Justin Fields took a sack after holding onto the ball too long, Jackson did his job to perfection, pummeling a defensive end to the ground and driving him into the dirt.



    For the season, Ohio State credited Jackson with 79 knockdowns – though he said at the NFL Scouting Combine that didn’t include the Clemson game, so he really had around 84 or 85. Exact total aside, it isn’t hard to find film of Jackson imposing his will on defenders, which has surely caught the eyes of NFL scouts.

    SKULL SESSION: NICK BOSA BREAKS DOWN CHASE YOUNG, COMING TO OHIO STATE BOOSTED JONAH JACKSON'S DRAFT STOCK, AND AN ABSURD CHASE YOUNG STAT

    “HE'LL PLAY 10 YEARS.”
    This shouldn't really be all that shocking, but it sounds like one season at Ohio State did more for Jonah Jackson's NFL Draft stock and general career prospects than four years at Rutgers.

    Jackson started for 1 ½ seasons before graduating from Rutgers and playing a final season at the other end of the Big Ten standings as a grad transfer. “You walked on the field at Ohio State and looked at the offensive linemen and you could pick out the guy from Rutgers right away,” said one scout. “He’s got a horrible body. He’s a little bit behind having been at Rutgers. The beginning-of-the-year film wasn’t as good in a new scheme. But then, by the end of the year, he was playing well, and he did well at the Senior Bowl. He doesn’t do everything pretty, but he’s a good football player. He’s a great, great guy, and he’s got some mean to him.” Started 16 games for the Scarlet Knights, mostly at RG but also three times at center, before moving to LG in Columbus. “I hate Rutgers players, but that Jackson kid, he’ll play 10 years,” said another scout. “He’s a tough (guy) and he’s smart.” From Media, Pa.

    I love how they talk about his time at Rutgers the same way they would talk about someone with an injury, like it's completely wasted development time he'll never get back and will have to work to overcome.

    And I mean, I'm not sure I disagree with that sentiment.

    JONAH JACKSON ANOTHER SENIOR-YEAR RISER
    After watching Jackson’s film from his junior year at Rutgers, Nagy didn’t anticipate sending him a Senior Bowl invite. But after seeing Jackson’s development in his lone season as a Buckeye, Nagy was much more impressed – and he was even more impressed once he spent a week with him in Mobile.

    “We watched him last spring at Rutgers, and I was even honest with him when he came down here for the game, I wasn’t a huge fan,” Nagy said. “I felt like his tape this year was a lot better, and Jonah’s definitely one of those guys that I talked about that was a better player than we initially gave him credit for watching him in the fall.

    “He got down here (at the Senior Bowl), and I thought he was a good player – I liked Jonah, we obviously invited him for a reason – but he got down here and I was like ‘Wow, this guy’s gonna start right away, this guy’s a year one NFL starter.’ Again, I thought probably middle rounds with Jonah, but now, he’s going to be one of the first interior guys off the board,” Nagy added. “What stood out down here, he really has got a great feel for the game. He’s extremely patient. In the one-on-one drills, his patience was awesome. You never saw him overstep people, get himself in trouble. He just really has a nice feel in pass protection, and really a cool kid, too. Spending time around him, he is the type of dude you want in the locker room.”
