10/17/12 - BIG 12: NFL DRAFT PROSPECT WATCH - WEEK 7: 3. DE Jackson Jeffcoat, 6-5, 245, Texas: Why he has the third spot: Jeffcoat might have played his last game with the Longhorns. The junior defensive end is finished for the season after suffering a right pectoral muscle rupture against Oklahoma. The Longhorns have had issues defensively -- mostly tackling -- but Jeffcoat was not the problem. He did his job getting into opposing backfields and unless injury concerns drop his stock, he will be a first-round pick if he decides to skip his senior season. Season stats (six games): 31 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, 1 pass breakup, 6 QB hurries, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery. Player ranking: Jeffcoat is ranked 20th overall and is rated as the third-best defensive end in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings. Up next: Jeffcoat will undergo surgery and begin rehab either preparing for the NFL Draft or his senior season at Texas. - C.J. Moore, CBSSports.com
10/16/12 - Texas junior defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat suffered a right pectoral muscle rupture in the Longhorns loss to Oklahoma on Saturday and will miss the rest of the season. Jeffcoat, who has been a mainstay in first round mock drafts, is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3 ranked draft-eligible defensive end and the No. 20 prospect overall. The injury will require surgery, his second pectoral procedure in the last 12 months after missing spring practice rehabbing from surgery on a left pectoral tear. Jeffcoat, son of 15-year NFL veteran Jim Jeffcoat, is the current leader in tackles for loss (10.5) for the Longhorns and is second in sacks (4.0) behind senior defensive end Alex Okafor who has six sacks in 2012. A native of Plano, Texas, Jeffcoat was highly recruited out of high school and started 20 games over his first three seasons in Austin, recording 30.0 tackles for loss and 13.0 sacks in his career. Athletes respond differently to pectoral injuries with the recovery time estimated anywhere between four and ten months. Thought to be a candidate to leave school early for the 2013 NFL Draft, Jeffcoat's injury and rehab process will mostly likely play a part in that decision. He has first round talent, but obviously this injury puts his draft stock in limbo. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
