2016 offensive lineman and five-star prospect Drake Jackson is currently competing at Nike's The Opening in Oregon.
While it's mostly skill competitions and drills with not a lot of full-contact action, Jackson is not backing down from some of the nation's best when it his turn to compete. He also looks like he'd rip someone's head off if it wasn't a crime:

There's also this nugget from 24/7 Sports on Jackson's never-back-down mentality on display at The Opening:
Jackson is the smallest offensive lineman at 6-1.5, 301 pounds. On Thursday he got in fights with the 6-7, 318-pound Raekwon Davis and the 6-4.5, 361-pound Kendell Jones, both Alabama commits and both among the most imposing guys I've ever seen. Jackson wasn't backing down.
