NCAA | Jacobs impresses at passing drills
Sun, 26 Feb 2006 20:47:02 -0800
Harvey Fialkov, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports Bowling Green QB Omar Jacobs (http://www.kffl.com/player/13502/nfl) ran his 40-yard dash in 4.77 seconds at the NFL Combine (http://www.kffl.com/link/183). Jacobs, who was measured at a shade less than 6 feet 4, had an impressive 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and hit 10 out of 12 passes in throwing drills, including both long post patterns. "For such an unorthodox push delivery, he delivered it real well today, highly accurate," said NFL (http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl) Network draft analyst Mike Mayock, one of the few media members allowed to watch the drills. "He had a little more juice on the ball and a better touch on the deep balls than I expected."

Absolutely accurate report. Jacobs looked very good in my opinion.

I don't think anyone was doubting his athleticism, other than his improving release, its his attitude/personality that are the big question mark.

I've heard there are questions about his leadership ability, but does he have a T.O.-esque bad attitude/personality as well?

Nah, from what I heard its the opposite. Very quiet and doesn't have that competitive fire.

seems to be competing pretty hard to improve his draft stock.

Thanks. Not good for a QB, but better than being loud and selfish IMO.

yes, I will go on the record and say he will be a 2nd round draft pick.

I personally like Croyle more in the 2nd.

Whitehurst is 3rd rounder most likely (arm surgery and all recently).


I cant see Jacobs sliding back into the 1st unless he has an amazing pro day, and shows something he hasnt before.

He is a 2 year project before he sees the field, like young is.

:wink: I was being sarcastic. "Sliding back into the first"??? He was never there. I don't see him being any higher than a 3rd. Personal interviews are what is gonna make or break him and obviously we won't know how they go. He has the athleticism no doubt, but does he have the personality. Thats the big question for him.

I'm just basing what I said off of what I've seen of him, what I've heard from BG fans, and articles I've read.

yes i've heard the same things. and it troubled me some that on the sidelines he sometimes just stands there alone. but it could just be one of those baseball things, when the pitcher who has the perfect game going in the 7th inning doesn't want to be talked to. maybe he's in the zone or whatever.

To anwser the personality question, he is definatly just a normal 21 year old. He is competative and wants to win and produce, but has a very laid back personality. Just not a rah rah type of guy, but definatly not a problem child or anything of the sort.

I saw him during the combine workouts on NFL network, and I think he's only going to improve. I would love to have Jacobs next season, seeing that Cutler nor Leinart will drop to us. And yes, I rather have Jacobs than Young.
