|School||Ole Miss |
|High School||South Panola (Batesville, Mississippi)|
|Started all four years at Ole Miss and as a senior he was selected for the All-SEC First Team...In 2008 he was a member of the All-SEC Second Team...Has a tremendous bloodline, as his brother is a defensive tackle for the Atlanta Falcons (Peria Jerry) and his cousin (Jamarca Sanford) is a safety for the Minnesota Vikings...A versatile player that has spent time at tackler...The senior is naturally strong and can dominate almost any opponent when locked on...Possesses the prototypical height and bulk for a guard going into theNFL...Playing in what has been considered the top conference in college football, Jerry gained plenty of experience against elite players and proved to be extremely durable...Conditioning is an issue at times...Is not very agile and lacks overall quickness.|
