Vols defensive lineman Malik Jackson has been added to the Senior Bowl roster for this Saturday's game in Mobile, Ala. He is the 118th Vol all-time to play in the prestigious game.
The 2011 game is set for 3 p.m. Central time (4 p.m. ET) on Saturday, Jan. 28, in Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The game and all practices will be televised live by NFL Network.
The defensive lineman was named to the All-SEC First Team by the media in 2011 and in the All-SEC Second Team by the coaches.
Jackson, also a 2010 AP All-SEC second team honoree, led the Vols in tackles for loss (11), sacks (2.5) and quarterback hurries (10). His 56 tackles were a career-high, ranked tied for third on the team and positioned him as one of just two defensive linemen to rank in the SEC's top 50 in tackles per game with an average of 4.6 each outing, placing 50th.
The Northridge, Calif., native was one of seven Vols with multiple pass breakups (2), while also forcing a fumble. His 11 TFLs rank 12th in the SEC.
