Played out of position for the Vols at DT, but has a lot of the tools the Bears look for in a DE and could be a real option in the 3rd round.
I haven't kept up with the Vols as much the past two or three years because they've been so bad, but I do know that he has basically been the only solid player the past two seasons on this defense. Derek Dooley hasn't recruited well since being hired as Tennessee's coach in 2010, and his players haven't developed well in the program due to the rash turnover in coaches in recent years from the firing of Phillip Fulmer, to the controversial departure of Lane Kiffin and him taking with him to USC most of the players recruited to play at Tennessee, and to this offseason where most of Dooley's staff have resigned due to fears that he won't be back for a four season after two losing seasons. I don't know a lot about Malik Jackson to tell you much, but I do know that he's practically the only draftable player to come out of Tennessee in the past three years. The fact that he play defensive tackle at 275 lbs in the SEC really tells you about the lack of depth UT has.
