Broncos DL Malik Jackson finished the regular season as Denver's team leader in tackles for loss (11) and QB hurries (15).
A favorite of Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris coming out of Tennessee as a 2012 fifth-round pick, Jackson has flourished as a versatile tackle-end, earning a starting job. "I think he has improved tremendously," coach John Fox said. "He and (rookie DT) Sylvester Williams have both improved a lot." Despite limited snaps, Jackson graded out as a top-12 defensive tackle in Pro Football Focus' regular season ratings, racking up 42 tackles and six sacks. Jan 11 - 10:31 AM

Broncos DC Jack Del Rio singled out second-year DL Malik Jackson as a player that impressed him in Thursday's preseason opener.

"I thought he really stood out," Del Rio said. "Malik is having a good camp and quietly making a move himself." Jackson, last year's fifth-rounder, has been rotating in with the first-team defense recently. He played just 123 defensive snaps as a rookie. We'd expect that number to at least double in '13.

According to the Denver Post, Broncos fifth-round DL Malik Jackson has "consistently stood out" in training camp practices.

Jackson has three tackles, a sack, and forced fumble through three preseason games, and is capable of playing both end and tackle. A mountainous 6-foot-6, 284 pounds, Jackson was billed as a high-motor player coming out of Tennessee, and could see heavy snaps as a rookie.

Broncos signed fifth-round DL Malik Jackson to a four-year contract.

Viewed as a "tweener" because he goes 6-foot-6, 284 and isn't necessarily a tackle or end, Jackson should find a home in defensive tackle-needy Denver. He rushes with a relentless motor, and has extensive run-stopping experience after playing out of position at "zero technique" nose tackle at Tennessee.

Broncos selected Tennessee DL Malik Jackson with the No. 137 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

This is the pick the Broncos received from St. Louis in the Brandon Lloyd trade. A favorite of Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris, Jackson has a prototypical five-technique body at 6-foot-6, 284 pounds (with nearly 34-inch arms). He still needs to get stronger, however, and should spend the bulk of his rookie year developing. Jackson could eventually play multiple positions for a Broncos team that likes to flash various defensive fronts under John Fox.

According to Sporting News' Russ Lande, Tennessee DL Malik Jackson has particularly appealed to 3-4 teams as a possible five-technique defensive end, and projects as a third- or fourth-round pick.

A longtime favorite of Rotoworld draft analyst Josh Norris, Jackson has a prototype five-technique body at 6-foot-6, 284 with nearly 34-inch arms. He is an effective interior pass rusher who plays relentlessly versus the run. Lande also pegs Jackson as a potential "two-gap" 4-3 tackle with starting potential.
