UNC Football Position Preview: Jacks


It's a new position for North Carolina, but a role and job very familiar in the game of college football. The jack position in UNC's defense is a standup edger rusher, whose main priority is getting to the quarterback and setting the edge on run plays. They can drop into coverage, but creating "havoc" in the backfield, as described it, is the focus. (Inside Carolina)
