Damien Jacobs used his chance on Monday in front of NFL and CFL scouts to show what he was capable of. According to Florida’s graduating senior defensive tackle, he came away happy with what he showed and expects to hear back from a lot of them. Jacobs and the rest of the pro prospects were sidetracked a bit by the weather as it rained all day in Gainesville. Still, things seemed to go well.
The offensive statistics show the dominance of the Florida State offense this season. Despite the Seminoles being second in the country with 55.2 points per game, Florida defensive tackle Damien Jacobs, a former Florida State commitment in high school, thinks the Gators have a better chance than most. Florida has plenty of motivation heading into the rivalry weekend.
This Saturday, the Florida State Seminoles travel to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators in what is typically a huge in-state rivalry game. This year, however, there isn’t much hope on the Gators’ side, particularly coming off of an extremely embarrassing loss to Georgia Southern.
Apparently pessimism isn’t just coming from the fans, but from the Florida players as well...
