As most of you know, Jacobs is the very talented QB from Bowling Green. Right now, he's being pegged as a 4th rounder, but will undoubtedly rise after the combine in a relatively QB weak draft.

But if we could get him in the 3rd... :drool:

It wouldn't kill me if we did take him in the 2nd...he has all the tools. He'll be a better pro than Vince Young, I guarandamntee it.

To be honest, with the signing of Printers (no laughing) there's no way we use a 1st day pick on a QB.

If Vince Young were on Bowling Green he would never have had the chance.

When Vince Young sets an all-time NCAA record for TD-INT ratio, then I'll buy into his hype...but watching him run roughshod over a mid-level D1 defense didn't get me off quite as quickly as it did all the east/west coast pundits.

You can't pimp Jacobs and then complain about Young's competition.

Jacobs is a system quarterback who took 99% of his snaps from the shotgun. I don't think either him or Young will be great QBs at the next level though.

I'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy of the situation...Jacobs gets downgraded for the quality of his competition and his system, but no one mentions how USCs D sucks...the one difference I see between the two is that Jacobs has a much stronger arm than Young...and that will make a difference at the next level. I'm not saying Jacobs is worth a 1st RD pick, I'm only saying that someone shouldn't put Young so high and discount the abilities of someone like Jacobs who has just as much potential.

How can you not love a guy like this to run the Chiefs offense?

Jacobs throws the deep ball well, that's it. His arm isn't NFL-strong and he has terrible velocity on his intermediate throws.

If someone throws a deep ball well and has ideal NFL arm strength, wouldn't it stand to reason that he puts decent velocity on his intermediate passes? Have you read a single scouting report on him, or for that matter ever actually watched a Bowling Green game? When your receivers are wide open and you hit them in stride...it's ok to take something off of it to make the ball more catchable. You don't have to throw every pass balls out like Leftwich.

He doesn't throw hard enough was the point I was making. You don't need to throw hard to throw a deep ball. You just need good timing.

And yes, I've seen plenty of Bowling Green games. He's a great college QB. His game doesn't translate to the NFL IMO though.

The guy was a high school pitcher, and a damned good one. Combined with the fact that scouts commend his arm strength, I would think that proves that he has enough velocity on his throws in order to be successful. Throwing the deep ball is also about arm strength, which is why the Chiefs struggle w/ it, due to Trent's lack of elite arm strength.

Young and Jacobs with both need to change their games and the style at which they throw to be succesful in the NFL. The diference though is, you're looking at top 10 for Young and 2nd-3rd round for Jacobs. At those rates, I think I'd risk it on Jacobs........
