Default Re: Omar Jacobs..Welcome to The Steelers

Height: 6-3 7/8 | Weight: 232 | 40-Time: 4.88
Strengths:
Has prototypical size and a big sturdy frame...A very accurate passer...Arm strength is more than adequate...Athletic with solid speed...Moves well in the pocket and can throw on the run...Very smart with the ball and doesn't make a lot of mistakes...Extremely productive...Still has some upside...A leader on the field.

Weaknesses:
Has a sidearm throwing motion that could lead to a lot of passes being batted down...May need to have his mechanics reworked...Did not play against top competition all the time...Rarely threw the ball deep downfield...Took most of his snaps out of the shotgun...Played in wide open offense that padded his stats.

Notes:
Had an amazing sophomore season (41 / 4 TD to INT ratio) and then struggled a bit in 2005...Has a lot of tools that you look and might just need to be coached up and adjust to the pro game...A potential starting quarterback at the next level.

Omar Jacobs
Height: 6-4
Weight: 233
40 Speed: 4.83 C
Position: Quarterback
College: Bowling Green
Final Grade: E 5.4


GM JR Scouting LLC Grading Scale/Key



SUMMARY
Jacobs was one of the most disappointing quarterbacks graded because when he declared early for the 2006 NFL Draft, all the media was talking about him being a top 10 pick and challenging Matt Leinart and Vince Young for the top quarterback spot. However, after watching film, it was quickly apparent that Jacobs most likely was not going to be chosen on the first day of the draft. He has the mental intangibles and physical tools to play quarterback in the NFL, but in order for him to become the player he is capable of, he is going to have to greatly improve his throwing technique. He has played almost exclusively in the shotgun formation and will need to adjust to lining up under center in a more traditional NFL offense. He needs to become much more consistent striding into throws while keeping his front leg bent and following through on passes in order to become a consistent-enough passer to be productive in the NFL. He's poised and relaxed in the pocket when the pressure is all around him and if he can improve his mechanics to become an accurate passer, he is already polished in terms of staying in the pocket and making late throws under heavy pressure. While he has a good-enough arm to make all the throws, he does not have a top-level arm so, unless his technique becomes very good and he always strides into throws, he will never be able to make the deep throw with consistent accuracy and zip. He has a tendency to try and put zip on passes down the field, which lets defensive backs cut in front of the receiver and make plays on the ball consistently. Overall, Jacobs is going to be a mid-round pick because he has the physical tools to start in the NFL. However, most quarterbacks who come into the NFL with major technique problems are not able to improve their technique enough to become the player they are physically capable of.



STRONG POINTS
Jacobs is a very smart quarterback who shows very good patience and poise in the pocket vs. the rush. He does not panic and will wait a long time to try and make good throws. His natural size and strength enable him to keep his feet in the pocket while pass rushers try and grab at his feet to trip him up. He has good size and the natural arm strength to make all the throws with zip and accuracy when he does everything right technique-wise. He reads the defense well at the line of scrimmage and can adjust to the blitz, finds the vacated area and hits the receiver who goes there. He has consistently shown the ability to step up and convert important downs into first downs. While he lacks good playing speed when he scrambles, he has the strength to break tackles and gains yards after contact.



WEAKNESSES
Jacobs is an adequate athlete who lacks the foot quickness and playing speed to make big plays with his feet. He has bad footwork and throwing technique really hinder his ability to consistently throw accurately. He stands very upright in the pocket and usually does not stride into his throws -- even when he does, he strides with a stiff front leg and snaps over it. Because he does not stride into or follow through on passes, his passes do not consistently have zip and they tend to dip in front of the receiver on medium/deep routes. He has a sidearm throwing motion, which leads to him getting passes tipped at the line of scrimmage, and he's a little bit deliberate, which allows defenders to read the pass quickly and break and close fast to make plays on the ball.

Absolutely dont like the pick unless someone can offer some reason why this guy can fit into any position.

It tasted a little worse because it came one pick after Seattle picks David Kirtman to shore up the running attack with Alexander. That was a treasure at a garage sale.

We needed a third stringer. I expected them to get a QB at some point today.

The FO mentioned that they wanted to bring in another QB in this draft, so we have more options for our 3rd guy in camp and into the season. I figured we'd grab one somewhere but I thought maybe in the 6th round instead and get our RB depth here.
