With a pair of sacks this season and constant disruption on the defensive interior, Malik Jackson has once again proven to be an absolute star for the Broncos’ defensive line. He’s developed so well since coming on as a 5th round pick from USC. He’s made 9 “stops” this season, which are solo tackles that result in a failure for the offense. He ranks 4th among 3-4 defensive ends in that statistic.
