Draft Scout Jackson Jeffcoat News
12/06/13 - 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
12/03/13 - 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
12/02/13 - 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
11/29/13 - 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
10/28/13 - 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
