Leon Jacobs was the fifth and final Badger selected in the 2018 NFL Draft and is probably the most athletic player of the group. At 6-foot-2 and 245 pounds, he ran a 4.48 40-yard dash and completed 26 reps on the bench press. Those numbers alone garnered him the attention he needed to be selected in the draft.
As a seventh-round pick, it’s unclear what his chances are at making the squad as Jacksonville supported one of the stingiest defenses last season.
Last season was a great example of the production Jacobs can have on the field. He recorded 60 total tackles, 10 for loss, 3.5 sacks and two interceptions (one for a touchdown). If he can continue to produce at his outside linebacker position, he might have a chance to stick around.
