Trajan Jeffcoat
Missouri Tigers


One-Liner:

A solid mover at his size that’s known as a team-leader with the potential to hear his name called in the draft.

Evaluation:

A productive collegiate player, pro scouts will need to determine where Jeffcoat fits best at the next level. The nimble big man came on like gangbusters as a sophomore, registering six sacks in eight games. He provides high energy and motor on the edge, which can wear down opposing offensive linemen. Jeffcoat primarily plays at the defensive end position but he seems to prefer lining up in a two-point stance. He moves extremely well for his size, enabling him to make plenty of plays behind the line of scrimmage (17 career tackles for loss). Where Jeffcoat struggles is getting off blocks, as he tends to get tangled up in the webs when engaging oncoming blockers. He decided to return for his senior season after somewhat of a down junior year. Jeffcoat has since embraced his leadership role and appears ready to get the train back on the tracks with a very good chance of hearing his name called come April. - Ric Serritella

Background:

Trajan Jeffcoat is a 2021 SEC Academic Honor Roll Defensive Lineman for the Missouri Tigers. In each of his three seasons for the Tigers, he has increased production beginning freshman year with seven tackles, sophomore season at twenty three tackles, and junior year with thirty four tackles. In his junior year, twenty three of the thirty four tackles he totaled were solo stops. His ability to tackle and cause fumbles, which happened against Central Michigan and South Carolina, shows Jeffcoat is more than capable of making impact plays for this team.
