Default Brandon Jacobs

a possible RB to draft in the 5th 6th or 7th round.. or maybe as an undrafted free agent.


Brandon Jacobs Southern Illinois Running Back 6-4 260

I saw this guy on a list of small school prospects.


to quote what others said about him when I was asking for info.

Quote:
Hes a real big powerful back, transferred from Auburn this year, shared carries with Terry Jackson (of Golden Gophers fame) runs hard, pretty fast for a big guy, could play RB or FB in the NFL. His main downside is his lack of being a feature back, as he shared carries at both colleges, and he dominated a low level of competition this year (but looked really good last year with Auburn)
Quote:
Yeah...at that size he is almost better off being a tight end...don't think he will ever be a feature back but a change of pace guy with feakish ability

This guy could be a good "chance" to take in the late rounds of day 2. He could end up being a diamond in the rough. Though it isnt very likely.. most backs ive seen that were successful at 250+ pounds.. were guys that were short and stocky.. made em hard to tackle. This guy is 6'4" so he most likely isnt a low runner. Anyway.. if he doesnt turn out to be our franchise back, he could still be a short yardage back (and I have a feeling Hollings wont be staying past his contract year).. we DO need a short yardage guy. And if THAT doesnt work out.. we could give him a shot at FB or TE.

I just think that a guy his size, with his skills, might deserve one of our late round picks. its a risk worth taking.

If anyone has seen this guy play, or gets the chance to see him play.. id love to know what you saw.
