2021 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #47, Colorado State LB Dequan Jackson
The Rams linebacker anchors a stout defense and found his way to our annual list of Mountain West football’s best players.
A big hitter who deserves notice.
The first linebacker on this year’s countdown of Mountain West football’s top performers is Colorado State’s Dequan Jackson, who has built quite the reputation as a defender who knows how to clean up.
CSU only got to play four games last year, but Jackson collected double-digit tackles in three of them and finished with 40 altogether to go along with 5.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. On a per-game basis, his ten tackles per game were surpassed by just two other Mountain West players in 2020, representing a big step forward.
With another full season (hopefully) on tap, Jackson will have plenty more chances to remind everyone why he’s a big reason the Rams defense could improve once again.
