Overview

Jenkins is an active defensive tackle against the run but isn't a classic nose tackle or two-gaper and doesn’t appear to have the skill set worthy of staying on the field in obvious passing downs. He does a good job of getting off the ball, getting off blockers and making plays in the backfield against the run. Exhibits good awareness in the passing game to sniff out screens and play-passes but have the burst or technique to pressure the quarterback with consistency. Was rested at times and given frequent blows during college career. Jenkins should expect to hear his name called in the middle rounds.

Analysis

Strengths

Jenkins has NFL-ideal size at the defensive tackle position. Consistently makes plays in the backfield against the run. Gets off the ball quickly, uses his hands, finds the football and sheds blockers well. Not often fooled by play-action fakes or by the screen game. Plays hard and is disruptive.

Weaknesses

Is not a threat to presser the passer. Does not have great hands or a wide array of pass rushing moves to get to the quarterback. Doesn't possess the speed or athletic ability to chase down the passer or make too may plays in space. Stamina is questionable. Comes off the field on third down and gets series off.
