Biography: Moved into the starting lineup as a junior. Played in five games as a senior before being sidelined the rest of the year with a knee injury.
Positives: Tough as nails blocker who attacks assignments. Quick off the snap, displays the ability to pull across the line of scrimmage and shows skill blocking in motion. Effective with his hands, jolts opponents with good punch and keeps defenders away. Blocks with a nasty attitude and goes hard until the whistle blows.
Negatives: Narrow-based blocker who really does not bend his knees. Must improve the strength of his base and do a better job blocking with his legs.
Analysis: Things were looking up for Jacobson after a terrific junior campaign yet a knee injury last year slowed his development and removed him from middle-round consideration in the draft. He should get looks in a zone blocking scheme but must prove he is healthy this summer.
