Florida State football kicks off on Labor day at Pitt. Tomahawk Nation previews the season up until that date by analyzing every key player and issue facing the 2013 Seminoles.
#54 Tre Jackson | Jr. | Right Guard | 6-4 330
I think he has better upside than analog [Ryan] McMahon (converted 3* DT).One scout’s take on him: Tools to play either side of the ball, good not great get-off, 1-gap DT, plays low consistently, not great with hands, good motor....I love the idea of getting a 3* DT to play interior offensive line. A converted 1-gap DT (6’4", 290) should be considered above-average in agility compared to peer prospects at OG...It will be interesting to see if his good motor translates to the other side of the ball (i.e., finishing off blocks, playing +1 sec after whistle).
