02/20/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 51. Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas, 6-4, 250, 4.78, 2...Still seems to show more potential than production, but is attractive because he has the athleticism to play with his hand on the ground or stand up and drop into coverage. Was sidelined by severely sprained ankle in 2010 and then a torn pectoral muscle in 2012 for which he had surgery. His father, Jim, was a standout defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys (1983-94) and Buffalo Bills (1995-97) and has served as the defensive line coach at the University of Houston and Colorado. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

12/13/2013 - 2013 WALTER CAMP FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: DL Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, 6-5 250, Sr., Plano, TX...Named the Ted Hendricks Award winner on Wednesday, Jeffcoat ranks third in the FBS in sacks (1.0 per game) and fifth among defensive linemen in fumbles recovered (0.25 pg). With a team-high 80 tackles, he is the only defensive lineman in the FBS to lead his team in that category. Jeffcoat also has a team-best 21 tackles for loss and 18 quarterback pressures.

Jeffcoat ranks tied for third on Texas' career TFL list with 59 and eighth in sacks with 26.5. His 12 sacks this season are the second most by a Longhorn in the last 29 seasons (Alex Okafor - 12.5 in 2012). He is the fifth Texas defensive end named a Walter Camp first team All-American and first since Brian Orakpo in 2008. - Texas football

12/12/2013 - 2013 ALL-BIG 12 FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DL Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, Sr., Plano, Texas/Plano West...Jeffcoat leads the team in tackles (80), tackles for loss (21), sacks (12.0), quarterback pressures (18) and fumbles recovered (3). He ranks third in the nation in sacks (1.0 per game) and fifth among defensive linemen in fumbles recovered (0.25 pg). Alex Okafor, who tallied 12.5 last season, is the only other Longhorn to record more sacks than Jeffcoat in the last 29 seasons. This is the fourth-straight season the Longhorns have placed a defensive end on the coaches All-Big 12 First Team (Sam Acho - 2010; Okafor - 2011, 12). - Texas football

12/12/2013 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BIG 12 FIRST TEAM: Defensive line Jackson Jeffcoat (Unanimous), Texas, 6-5, 250, Sr., Plano, Texas,...Jeffcoat leads the team in tackles (80), tackles for loss (21), sacks (12.0), quarterback pressures (18) and fumbles recovered (3). He ranks third in the nation in sacks (1.0 per game) and fifth among defensive linemen in fumbles recovered (0.25 pg).

12/12/2013 - 2013 ALL-BIG 12 HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Jackson Jeffcoat (Def. LoY)...Has been selected Honorable Mention All-Big 12 for the 2013 college football season by the Big 12 Coaches. - Texas football

12/11/2013 - 2013 TED HENDRICKS AWARD WINNER: Texas senior Jackson Jeffcoat has been named the winner of the 2013 Ted Hendricks Award, given annually to the top defensive end in college football, the Ted Hendricks Foundation announced Wednesday. Jeffcoat, who was named the Associated Press Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year on Monday, ranks third in the FBS with 12 sacks. Alex Okafor, who tallied 12.5 last season, is the only other Longhorn to record more sacks than Jeffcoat in the last 29 seasons. The three-time Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week led Texas with 80 total tackles and 21 tackles for loss this season.

A native of Plano, Texas, Jeffcoat tallied 21 tackles and five sacks in the last two games of the regular season. On the year, he also led the team with 18 quarterback pressures and had three fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, interception and three pass breakups. Jeffcoat has made some of his biggest plays at pivotal times for the Longhorns. In a 31-21 win over Kansas State in September, Jeffcoat recorded both of his sacks on the Wildcats' final two drives to help prevent a comeback. Against Iowa State, his interception on the Cyclones' final drive helped seal a 31-30 win. His two sacks against Oklahoma came on third and fourth down, with the fourth-down sack coming in the fourth quarter and ending OU's final drive. His 12 sacks and 19 tackles for loss in conference play are more than any other Big 12 player. - Big 12 football

12/11/2013 - 2013 TED HENDRICKS AWARD WINNER: In his career, Jeffcoat is averaging 0.68 sacks in 39 games, which ranks No. 4 on the FBS active list. He ranks third in school history with 59 career tackles for loss and eighth with 26.5 sacks. On-field performance, leadership ability and contributions to school and community are some of the criteria used to determine the award winner. In addition to his on-field achievements, Jeffcoat has made a number of contributions off the field. Jeffcoat participates in a "Read Across America" program, reading to students at a dual-language elementary school in both English and Spanish. He's one of a number of Longhorns that have regularly visited patients at Dell Children's Hospital on the Friday's before home games, and he serves as a mentor at Austin elementary and middle schools as part of the Longhorn Leaders Program.

Jeffcoat edged out finalists Vic Beasley of Clemson, Shilique Calhoun of Michigan State, Brad Daly of Montana State, Michael Sam of Missouri and Marcus Smith of Louisville for the award. Current college coaches, former players and coaches, media members and pro football personnel professionals voted in the selection process. Jeffcoat will be honored in the spring of 2014 at a time and place to be determined. Jeffcoat is the second Longhorn to win the Hendricks Award; Brian Orakpo won it in 2008. - Big 12 football

12/11/2013 - 2013 BIG 12 CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, DE, Sr, Plano, Texas...Voted the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press Monday, Jeffcoat is the fourth Longhorn or win or share the defensive player of the year award from the coaches, joining DT Casey Hampton (2000), Derrick Johnson (2004) and Brian Orakpo (2008). The three-time Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week led Texas with 80 total tackles and 21 tackles for loss this season. A native of Plano, Texas, Jeffcoat tallied 21 tackles and five sacks in the last two games of the regular season. On the year, he also led the team with 18 quarterback pressures and had three fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, interception and three pass breakups. - Texas football

12/09/2013 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas...Jeffcoat leads the team in tackles (80), tackles for loss (21), sacks (12.0), quarterback pressures (18) and fumbles recovered (3). He ranks third in the nation in sacks (1.0 per game) and fifth among defensive linemen in fumbles recovered (0.25 pg).

12/06/2013 - 2013 TED HENDRICKS AWARD FINALIST: JACKSON JEFFCOAT - TEXAS 6'5" 250 lbs SR...Jeffcoat's 3-sack performance last week against Texas Tech helped put him in the company of our other finalists, but he has been a huge concern for opposing coaches all season long. He was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week three times in the 2013 season and leads the Longhorns in Sacks (10), Tackles for Loss (19) and QB Pressures (18). He has also recorded 66 Tackles (29 solo), a Blocked Kick, an Interception and three Passes Broken Up. His 10 Sacks all came in conference play, and this led all Big 12 players. - The Ted Hendricks Foundation

12/03/2013 - 2014 NFL DRAFT, WEEK 14 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES: DE Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas...Playing in his final game in Austin, Jeffcoat went out with a career-performance that caused more than a few Texas fans to say "It's about time." But better late than never as the Longhorns' pass rusher helped lead Texas over Texas Tech on Thanksgiving night, 41-16. Jeffcoat finished with a team-high 10 tackles, 3.0 sacks and 3.0 tackles for loss, lining up as a stand-up "Rush Spy" inside linebacker most of the game. He kept the Red Raiders' offensive line guessing, attacking different gaps with a running start that created extra momentum to win angles and disrupt the pocket.

Jeffcoat showed off a relentless motor and strong, forceful hands to attack and fight through blocks, winning with his competitive edge to work through the whistle. He isn't an elite athlete and lacks ideal ankle and hip fluidity, but his fast play speed was tough for Texas Tech to handle. Jeffcoat arrived in Austin with a lot of hype, and while his collegiate career hasn't gone quite as expected, the skills he showed last Thursday are why he has a NFL future, likely as a top-100 draft pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/02/2013 - WEEK 14 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, DE, Sr, Plano, Texas,...Jackson Jeffcoat posted a team-high seven tackles, including three sacks in Texas' 41-16 win over Texas Tech. All three of his sacks came on third-down plays as the Horns held an explosive Red Raider offense to 5-of-18 third-down attempts and 396 yards of offense, more than 100 yards below their 525 ypg season average.

Jeffcoat also had three QB pressures. His sacks all came in the second quarter. The first two forced punts while his third forced a field goal as UT maintained a 20-10 halftime lead. Jeffcoat's three sacks moved him into eighth place on the UT all-time list with 24.5 and third on the Longhorns' all-time TFL list with 57. - Big 12 football

11/29/2013 - Case McCoy passed for two touchdowns and ran for another as Texas kept its Big 12 title hopes alive Thursday night with a 41-16 win over Texas Tech. Joe Bergeron ran for 102 yards and a touchdown for the Longhorns (8-3, 7-1 Big 12), who end their regular season Dec. 7 at No. 9 Baylor. If Texas wins that game and No. 7 Oklahoma State loses to No. 18 Oklahoma, the Longhorns will win their first league championship since 2009.

Texas Tech (7-5, 4-5) ended its regular season with its fifth consecutive loss under first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Red Raiders went in with the nation's top passing offense, but Texas sacked freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield seven times. Texas Tech's biggest play came on a 51-yard touchdown on a fake punt by Ryan Erxleben in the first quarter. Mike Davis caught touchdowns of 47 and 7 yards for Texas.

Malcolm Brown also rushed for 128 yards for Texas, which pounded out 281 total yards on the ground. Anthony Fera kicked field goals of 37 and 49 yards, tying the Texas record by making 15 in a row this season. Jackson Jeffcoat had three sacks for Texas, which chased Red Raiders quarterbacks all night with a swarming pass rush. Mayfield completed 24 of 44 passes for 237 yards for the Red Raiders, who haven't won in Austin since 1997. - AP Sports

10/28/2013 - WEEK 9 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, DE, Sr, Plano, Texas...Jackson Jeffcoat registered one sack, 2.5 tackles for loss, two pass breakups, three QB pressures and four tackles (three solo) in Texas' 30-7 win at TCU. The Longhorns held TCU to 45 yards on 24 rushes and 246 yards of total offense. Jeffcoat provided the pressure on a first quarter forced fumble that the Horns recovered at the TCU three-yard line and turned into a quick touchdown and 7-0 lead that they never relinquished. TCU's seven points were the fewest by the Frogs since October of 2006 and marked the only time they penetrated the UT red zone. - Big 12 football

10/15/2013 - NFL Draft prospects: Oklahoma's Colvin, Texas' Jeffcoat struggle...In Saturday's renewal of the Red River Rivalry, Texas pulled out a 36-20 win over Oklahoma, as two top senior prospects -- Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin and Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat -- produced mixed results. Jeffcoat finished with two sacks on the stat sheet, but both plays were more a result of coverage. NFL scouts want to see a big senior season from him, but he simply hasn't responded so far, heaping more mediocre play onto his season vs. Oklahoma. Despite displaying quickness off the edge and the toughness to attack the body of the edge blocker, Jeffcoat doesn't do much after initial contact. He struggles to get creative with his rush moves and he doesn't use his hands correctly to shed blocks or keep blockers from his frame. This game was a microcosm of Jeffcoat's senior season -- even his highlight tape is extremely average. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

10/03/2013 - Scouting the Texas run defense: Look for Iowa State to see what it can do against the Longhorns on the ground, since this hasn't been a Texas strength this season. The Cyclones may be particularly effective here in the first half, since the Longhorns will be without Steve Edmond, suspended for a targeting penalty he got against Kansas State. - The Sports Xchange

09/23/2013 - WEEK 4 BIG 12 CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas, DE, Sr, Plano, Texas,...Jackson Jeffcoat posted five tackles, two sacks and two quarterback hurries to help the Longhorns hold K-State to 115 yards on 38 carries in the 31-21 win. K-State entered the game averaging 171 yards rushing and 35 points per game. Jeffcoat's two sacks, totaling 11 yards in loss, came on the Wildcats' final two drives as the Horns halted any chance of a comeback. His sack for an eight-yard loss in the final minute of the game came at the Longhorns' 11-yard line and forced K-State into a third and long situation. - Big-12 football

09/08/2013 - Texas replaces defensive coordinator...One day after yielding 550 rushing yards to BYU, Texas replaced defensive coordinator Manny Diaz with Greg Robinson, Texas announced on Sunday. The Cougars' 550 yards rushing in BYU's 40-21 victory was the most ever against Texas. The previous high was 452 rushing yards by Rice in 1997, and Longhorns head coach John Mackovic was fired after that season. "Our performance on defense last night was unacceptable, and we need to change that," Texas head coach Mack Brown said in a statement.

"Greg will be here tonight and get with the staff and players to start preparing for Ole Miss. He will be running our defense immediately. We're very fortunate that Greg has been around, watched all of our practice video and has a good scouting report moving forward. His familiarity with the staff and players should make for a smooth transition. He knows this place, did a terrific job in leading our defense before, and I'm excited to have him back on the field. We're back at it and working hard to beat Ole Miss this weekend."

Robinson, who was the head coach at Syracuse from 2005 through 2008, was hired by Texas last January to serve as a "football analyst." Robinson had been Texas' defensive coordinator in 2004. He was Michigan's defensive coordinator in 2010 when the Wolverines ranked 108th in the nation in scoring defense. - The Sports Xchange

09/06/2013 - Scouting the Texas run defense: BYU's Jamaal Williams ran for 144 yards on 33 carries in the rain against Virginia, so while the Cougars still like to throw the football this isn't a team that's afraid to challenge opponents on the ground. The Cougars are big up front, and the matchup will test the size and depth of the Longhorns defensive front, which will have to hold its own in the trenches to keep the Cougars from grinding out yards. - The Sports Xchange

08/14/2013 - 2013 TED HENDRICKS AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas,...The native of Plano, Texas, has appeared in 27 career games with 20 starts, and has posted at least one sack in 10 of his last 13 games with 12 over that span. For his career, Jeffcoat has 117 tackles (59 solo), including 38 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks, 22 pressures, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and five pass breakups.

After tallying 71 tackles, including 21 tackles for loss and eight sacks, in 2011, he missed the final seven games of 2012 with a pectoral injury. Jeffcoat still finished second on the team in TFL (11) and sacks (four). He was a 2011 second-team All-Big 12 selection and was tabbed honorable mention Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2010. - Mack Brown Texas football

08/12/2013 - TOP TEXAS PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 2. DE Jackson Jeffcoat (6-5, 245, 4.67)...The son of a 15-year NFL veteran defensive lineman, Jeffcoat arrived at Texas as a five-star high school recruit with a lot of hype. After starting a pair of games as a true freshman, he replaced Sam Acho as a starter in 2011 and finished with a team-best 16.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. Jeffcoat recorded four sacks through the Longhorns' first six games last season but was lost for the remainder of 2012 after rupturing his right pectoral muscle against Oklahoma. He has a fluid body type with the quick feet to sidestep blocks and closing burst to flatten and get to the pocket.

Rushing from both a two- and three-point stance, Jeffcoat plays too high with inconsistent pad level and needs to get more creative with his pass-rush moves to avoid getting locked up off the snap. He lacks ideal functional strength to win at the point of attack with power and is too easily handled in the run game, struggling to hold contain as opponents frequently run to his side of the field on film. Jeffcoat has some tweener traits, and there isn't much overly special about his game, but there is a lot to love about his competitive nature, nonstop motor and passion to better himself on and off the field. Overall, Jeffcoat's draft stock will be helped considerably by his NFL pedigree with his bloodlines and motivated attitude, but thus far through three seasons in Austin, he looks more like a second-day prospect with some upside rather than a top-20 selection. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
