Jerry Jacobs was the top-graded UDFA rookie in 2021 by PFF – Lions Wire

Not every draft pick hit right away for the Detroit Lions in 2021, but GM Brad Holmes and the Lions absolutely nailed a couple of the undrafted free agent rookies. That includes the UDFA that earned the highest Pro Football Focus grade of the rookie class.
Cornerback Jerry Jacobs soared above the rest of the UDFA field. He landed a 65.8 overall grade, which was good for fifth overall amongst all rookie CBs. Three of the four players above him were first-round picks, along with Raiders’ 5th rounder, Nate Hobbs. Jacobs, from Arkansas, wound up as the 17th-best rookie defender.
Jacobs worked his way into a starting outside CB after some injuries above him on the depth chart and proved he belonged. His impressive rookie campaign ended with a knee injury after 11 games.
