Arizona Cardinals sign Holy Cross offensive tackle Jackson Dennis

The Arizona Cardinals signed 21 undrafted free agents and we’ll take a look at them over the next four or five days.

Let’s get to know them before they are gone.

Small school offensive lineman Jackson Dennis for Holy Cross.

"Holy Cross offensive lineman Jackson Dennis (6-7, 308) appeared in 40 games (24 starts) during his five-year (2015-19) college career. In 2019, he started all 12 games at right tackle for an offense that averaged 135.9 rushing yards per game and scored 18 rushing touchdowns. An Odessa, FL native, Jackson was a two-year starter at Holy Cross, opening all 11 games at right tackle as a junior for a unit that ranked second in the Patriot League in total offense (327.3 ypg), rushing (132.5 ypg) and scoring (24.4 ppg) in 2018."

Dennis’ athleticism seems to limit him to a right tackle at best in the NFL. He’ll need time on the practice squad to see if he has what it takes from a physicality standpoint, but men his size don’t grow on trees.
