    Steelers Sign Rookie Quarterback Omar Jacobs

    I'm curious to see how this kid does.

    PITTSBURGH — The Steelers announced they have reached a contract agreement with rookie quarterback Omar Jacobs, it was announced today. Financial terms of the multi-year deal were not released.
    Jacobs (6-4, 224) was the first of two fifth-round selections (164th overall) for the Steelers in the 2006 NFL Draft.
    In just 25 games at Bowling Green, Jacobs ranks fifth in school annals with 523 pass completions and third with 6,938 passing yards. He also tossed Falcon-best 71 career touchdown passes.
    A second-team All-American as a sophomore, Jacobs tied the NCAA Division 1-A season record in 2004 by attempting 224 consecutive passes without throwing an interception. He finished the season with 41 touchdown passes to just four interceptions, establishing an NCAA record. Last year as a junior, Jacobs was a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, given annually to the nation's top quarterback, and was an All-Mid-American Conference honoree.
    Following the signing of Jacobs, the Steelers have inked seven of their nine draft picks.

    I wonder if he'll ever be asked to try playing wide reciever. If I remember correctly he was a pretty fast guy...

    It's amazing at the QB's we get and turn them into WR's. I kind of like it. Gives us a lot of options.

    And 3 of them are from the Steelers system. Someone on our coaching staff is doing a hell of a job. It also allows easy access to trick plays.

    If the plays work that are designed for him he should have some easy catches. Maybe even some easy TD throws.....
