Height: 6-4 Weight: 315 Age: 27
Born: 4/24/1988 Clemson , SC
Experience: 5th season
High School: D.W. Daniel HS [Clemson, SC]
Selected By: Washington Redskins
Pick (Overall): 9 (41)
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.
