Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Jacobs has an explosive first step and has the fluidity, flexibility and core strength to chase through traffic and make plays.
  • He has an impressive closing burst and the functional strength to bounce off blocks. Despite being on the light side, he’s decent when setting the edge against the run, playing with a good pad level and the wide base to anchor.
  • Combines very good instincts with above-average reaction skills. Almost always finds the ball in traffic.
  • Has enough twitch and speed to make an impact coming off the edge as a third-down specialist.
  • Jacobs has the size and strength to stack and shed blockers and is especially fierce when moving downhill against the run.
  • Closes quickly on relatively immobile quarterbacks. A consistently heavy hitter who flashes explosiveness and the ability to separate the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • As a pass rusher, Jacobs needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
  • Jacobs lacks the speed of a chase and- tackle guy. Jacobs lacks twitch as a pass rusher and lacks the feet and flexibility to threaten around the edge.
  • Possesses below-average instincts for the linebacker position. Leaves more plays on the field than he makes.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
