Pedersen, Jacob

leaf12 pedersenCard: Leaf Draft 2014
Acquired: Box Breaker, 2014.

Jacob was a 2013 All-Big Ten Honorable Mention selection at Wisconsin, where he racked up 541 yards on 39 receptions and 3 touchdowns. His 17 career touchdowns, are most ever for a Wisconsin tight end- a tall order, considering names like Owen Daniels and  Graham Garrett both proceeded him there and went on to become productive pros in the NFL. For his frame, Pedersen gives it his all on blocking downs, and has great hands, locating the ball in traffic and catching the off-errant throw, but needs to put on more bulk to survive the wear and tear of a full NFL season. After the draft Pedersen signed a Free Agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons.
