For those of you who watched the Detroit Lions latest collapse, this time blowing a 14-3 lead to the Green Bay Packers, you would probably have a tough time coming up with something positive from the game.
But, according to Ben Fennell, Lions rookie OG Jonah Jackson was a bright spot.
In fact, Fennell tweeted out that Jackson had some of the best pass pro reps vs. Packers LB Za’Darius Smith as he has seen in 2 years. Smith if you were not aware, racked up 13.5 sacks in 2019 on his way to his first Pro Bowl.

According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson was the third-highest graded offensive rookie in Week 2 behind Tristan Wirfs and Damien Lewis.

There were not many good takeaways for the Lions in regards to their Week 2 loss, but it looks like Jonah Jackson could end up being a keeper.
