Chiefs to sign high-upside UDFA linebacker that the rest of the NFL inexplicably forgot to draft

The Kansas City Chiefs are capitalizing on a big mistake by the rest of the NFL with one of their undrafted free agents signings.

According to numerous reports, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed Penn State LB Curtis Jacobs as an undrafted free agent. A three-year starter for the Nittany Lions, Jacobs finished the 2023 college football season with 49 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries.

Jacobs is a talented athlete, who many expected would be selected in the 2024 NFL draft. The Athletic’s Dane Brugler had a fifth-round grade on Jacobs, and he was his 10th overall linebacker in the entire 2024 NFL draft class.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 241 pounds, Jacobs is an explosive athlete.

He ran a 4.58s 40-yard dash with a 1.57s 10-yard split at the combine. His 40-yard dash ranked seventh among all linebackers and he was the only linebacker over 240 pounds to post a sub-4.6 40-yard dash. He also jumped a 35-inch vertical and a 124-inch broad jump as well. That explosion often shows up on the field when he’s following his instincts and attacking downhill.

At the Shrine Bowl ahead of the 2024 NFL draft, Zebra Sports clocked Jacobs at 20.31 on the GPS, which ranked the fastest among all linebackers in attendance.

His versatility also shows just how talented he is as an athlete. Just checkout his snaps by alignment from PFF. Penn Stateused him all over the defense.
