Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 87/4/1 after he had 106 tackles as a junior and 113 as a sophomore. Led Fresno State in tackles in each of the past three seasons.
Positives: "Tough two-down linebacker who is best in the box. Plays smart football, displays short-area quickness, and chases the action hard. Gives a lot of effort, displays good instincts, and wraps up tackling."
Negatives: Struggles in coverage and does not cover much area on the field. Has marginal speed in pursuit.
Analysis: Jacobs has been ultra productive as a run defender since his sophomore season. He possesses the mentality to back up on the inside of a 3-4 alignment.
