Sun, 26 Feb 2006 20:47:02 -0800

Harvey Fialkov, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports Bowling Green QB Omar Jacobs ran his 40-yard dash in 4.77 seconds at the NFL Combine. Jacobs, who was measured at a shade less than 6 feet 4, had an impressive 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and hit 10 out of 12 passes in throwing drills, including both long post patterns. "For such an unorthodox push delivery, he delivered it real well today, highly accurate," said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock, one of the few media members allowed to watch the drills. "He had a little more juice on the ball and a better touch on the deep balls than I expected."

NCAA | Doubts follow Jacobs

Sun, 26 Feb 2006 09:33:27 -0800

Greg A. Bedard, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Bowling Green QB Omar Jacobs is still being questioned because of his unorthodox sidearm delivery. It was one reason why Jacobs did not receive any scholarships from a major Division I school. St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan thinks the doubts of his delivery are overrated. Linehan said, "That throwing motion thing is way overrated. I think your anticipation and your ability to get the ball in the receiver's hands is the key more so than the motion. He's a proven player and I think he's a guy who can go help whoever takes him and be very effective. He's proven it."
