Offensive Lineman, New England Patriots
Tre’ Jackson is an American football guard who is currently a free agent. He played college football at Florida State and was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Jackson attended Wayne County High School in Jesup, Georgia, where he was a two-sport star in both track and football, where he was a two-way lineman. Jackson was also one of the state’s top performers in the shot put (top-throw of 57 ft 8 1⁄2 in or 17.59 m).
In his first year at Florida State, Jackson was expected to redshirt, especially after a groin injury caused him to miss the first five games of the season. He eventually started all 14 games as a sophomore and earned the second-highest season grade among Seminoles offensive linemen, second only to Bryan Stork. Jackson’s 22 knockdown blocks rank third on the team.
Fox Sports ranked Jackson as the No. 4 offensive guard available in the 2015 NFL draft, behind only Laken Tomlinson, Ali Marpet, and A. J. Cann. New England Patriots picked him up and he played in 13 games with nine starts at right guard his rookie year.
