Bijhon Jackson: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Bijhon Jackson
School: University of Arkansas
Position: Defensive Tackle
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
I wanted to make a name for myself. Not necessarily as a playmaker, but someone who had to be respected because of the way I play.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Relentless, Disciplined, Disruptive.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I’m currently training with the strength staff at Arkansas.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Tendencies or giveaways that offensive linemen have that would indicate the play or the blocking combination.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
There aren’t many guys my size that can move as well as me, which is something that will probably increase my chances at opportunities in the future. It’s also easy for me to retain new information quickly, so that’ll play a huge part as well.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
One thing that I pride myself on being is accountable, whether it’s being in a meeting on time or being in my gap on a certain play.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I’m a guy who keeps fighting. I struggled early in my college career and no matter how tough it was, I woke up every day with the attitude that I was going to get better. I’m relentless. I always get back up.
