Overview

Played at LSU in 2011 and 2012. 2013: Played in 13 games and started 12 for McNeese State. 2012: Played in nine games and started one for LSU. Was suspended for the final four games due to violation of an unspecified team rule. 2011: Played in 10 games at LSU. Did not start, but played on special teams. 2010: Redshirted at LSU.

Analysis

Strengths

Very good frame -- big enough to block inline. Willing blocker -- works to position and tries to run his feet on contact. Effective move blocker -- shows good awareness and reactions to adjust to and fit on targets. Functional short receiver -- generally catches what he should.

Weaknesses

Could stand to get stronger. Tight hips and stiff ankles. Pedestrian foot speed -- does not threaten the seam. Will struggle to create separation vs. man coverage. Limited after the catch. Does not generate power through his lower half. Could stand to improve his blocking technique -- tends to bend at the waist. Does not physically dominate FCS competition.

Bottom Line

An LSU transfer, Jacobs is a monotone, inline-blocking “Y” tight end lacking exceptional athletic traits for the pro game. Will have to excel as a blocker to stick as a No. 3.
