Michigan Football: Fred Jackson — Spring Practice
A few things:
There are different types of drills, not all drills are full contact, some are more about technique.
The first drills are just that they give Coach Jackson a chance to teach the technique.
The second drills are full go.
As a running back in pass protection you are not attempting to have a meat locker, knock out hits. Our evaluation of that is they really need to work on their pad level. Too many times the rusher had leverage and was able to manhandle the running back. We did like how hard the running backs were running and how they were attacking the tacklers.
Coach Jackson has used the same basic coaching personality since some of us first met him at The University of Toledo.
If he can improve Shallman’s quickness he can definitely play a role. He is a bit slow to the hole when hitting the cut back.
