Coastal Carolina pro day

March 28, 2021

The Chanticleers had a dream 11-1 season in which their only loss was in OT in their bowl game, while star DE Tarron Jackson had a dream season of his own in which he was the Sun Belt defensive player of the year, a consensus All-American, and a finalist for the prestigious Lombardi Award (along with Trevor Lawrence and DeVonta Smith). As such, scouts were intrigued to see him work out at his pro day, but like several other small school players noted above Jackson didn’t test all that well. He measured in at 6-2, 254 and ran the 40 in 4.70 which is okay; he also posted 25 reps in the BP which is very good, but his vertical (just 29.5 inches) and agility drill times of 4.36 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.41 in the 3-cone weren’t very good at all.
