It’s official. With the 165th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys have selected defensive end Joe Jackson.

His “bull in a china shop” playing style may not look pretty, but it has created consistent production over the last three seasons. While his NFL-ready frame and play strength are a big plus, his lack of edge speed, bend and fluidity could cap has NFL rush success. Jackson is a natural 4-3 base end, but he may have the length and frame to handle 3-4 defensive end duties.
