05/13/2014 - Bills undrafted free agents: DT Damien Jacobs - 6-3, 290 - Florida...Jacobs played in 23 games with four starts at Florida after transferring in from East Mississippi Community College. The defensive lineman recorded 34 tackles, six tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks and one pass breakup in his two seasons as a Gator. "He came in as more of a rotational guy for Florida, but had more of a starting role this year when Dominique Easley went down with a knee injury," said Leak. "Not a massive body, but a bigger sized kid with growth potential. He's very competitive with good length and the ability to get upfield. More of a two-gapper to hold off blocks. The coaches down there loved the way he worked and his whole makeup in general." - Chris Brown, BuffaloBills.com

08/21/2013 - OTHER FLORIDA PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: DT Damien Jacobs (6-2, 286, 4.97)...Jacobs signed with Florida as a highly regarded JUCO prospect from East Mississippi Community College. He became a solid part of the rotation among Florida's deep and talented defensive line, recording 10 tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss (all sacks) in his first season in Gainesville. Jacobs is one of several defensive linemen on this roster capable of enjoying a breakout campaign in 2013. It is a testament to the young talent at this position for Florida that Jacobs and converted offensive lineman Leon Orr join Easley as the only upperclassmen among this group, arguably the team's strongest unit. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
