Notes:
A 2007 AP All-America Second Team member and an All-Pac-10 First Team choice for the second time in his career (2005) even after he had surgery on his right ankle prior to the start of the campaign...Jackson started all 13 games as a senior, his fourth year as a starter for USC, and was first on the unit with 17 tackles for loss, not to mention a team-high 10.5 sacks...Named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week near the end of November after he tied a school record with four sacks and set another with 5.5 tacklesfor loss in a meeting with Arizona State...Jackson made the 2006 All-Pac-10 Second Team thanks to his 11 tackles for loss and four sacks...Performed well under pressure, playing for one of the top programs in the nation over the last decade, using his quickness and instincts to make up for a lack of top-notch speed...However, having surgery on the same ankle twice in his career already may give scouts cause to overlook him early in the draft.
