If he cuts on his route too early, the ball is over his head. We all have seen this. Jacoby leaping high and not able to even come close to the ball. it's because he went into his cut too soon when he should have taken one more step.
If he cuts too late, the ball ended up in the dirt. Why? Because he wasn't in the right spot at the right time.
Jacoby's route running, while he has had some people in the Texans organization stick up for him, is not good. It's inconsistent just like his hands and just like his punt fielding decision making.
Everything about him is inconsistent and that gets you in hot water in the NFL. He has the talent attributes teams want, but the inconsistency issue is what hurts him AND his team.
Notice there was no Blurbsdale College WR taken this year. Kubiak is not going to take a risk on another Jacoby again. That ship has sailed. The Amobi Okoye ship, similar to the Jacoby ship, sailed too. The Texans are beginning to settle down and just take players who have consistent tape and are not projects to shape up and show how awesome we are at finding hidden gems.
Yep, no more Molden's or Jones high anymore. I don't think I or many would've been as hard if he had been drafted in the 5 round or lower.
I hope Jones does well in Baltimore when we don't have to play them. If he does develop into something much better than what we saw here, props to him and the staff there. He's just not going to do it here.
