Brandon Jacobs (born July 6, 1982) is an American football running back for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Coffeyville Community College, Auburn and Southern Illinois.

Jacobs attended Assumption High School in Napoleonville, Louisiana, where he ran for a state-best 3,032 yards in 2000. He earned Class 4A Offensive MVP honors while averaging 215 yards per game and totaling 35 touchdowns. He was a high school teammate of Green Bay Packers defensive back Tramon Williams.

Jacobs' college career started at Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas, under the direction of head coach Jeff Leiker and running backs coach Dickie Rolls. Coffeyville is a member school of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference. In 2001, his freshman year at Coffeyville, he ran for 1,349 yards and 17 TDs and gained Kansas Jayhawk Conference All-Conference honorable mention. He was also named the team MVP for CCC. In his sophomore season for the Red Ravens he racked up 1,896 yards and 20 TDs on 267 carries for a 7.1 yard-per-carry average. In light of these efforts Jacobs was named a JUCO All-American and to the KJCCC All-Conference First Team. He once again garnered the Team MVP trophy and was also named the recipient of the Reb Russell Memorial Football Scholarship Award. The statistic of 1,896 yards rushing ranks second all-time on the Ravens individual season rushing yardage record.
