Former vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys Gil Brandt has high praise for former BYU receiver McKay Jacobson. Jacobson was one of 10 former Cougars who worked out on Pro Day last week in Provo.

"The former highly touted high school player projects as a slot receiver," Brandt writes. "I think he’ll be drafted in the seventh round or so. Jacobson has the chance to be a very good pro player."

Brandt, who has spent the last eight years as NFL.com's main personnel guru, also breaks down the Pro Day performance of other Cougar players.
