Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Whether from the two- or three-point stance he shows good burst off the snap, as well as the lateral agility and flexibility to scrape the corner.

Perhaps most impressive about Jenkins' game given his 'tweener frame is his strength at the point of attack. For a player with his size, Jenkins shows good power to lock-out and create a pile, as well as the balance to string plays out wide.

WEAKNESSES: Jenkins has been a productive pass rusher over his career (posting 5.0 sacks each year), but he doesn't possess elite agility and closing speed.

--Rob Rang (8/14/14)

Player Overview

With opponents focusing on All-American Jarvis Jones in 2012, Jenkins burst onto the scene with 31 tackles, including eight for loss and five sacks as a true freshman. Jenkins took over as the 'JACK linebacker in then-defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's 3-4 alignment and improved his numbers (45 tackles, including 12 tackles for loss and another five sacks) but did not emerge as the dominant force some anticipated.

He remained in a similar role in new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt's scheme in 2014, but played significantly lighter (252 pounds) after weighing around 270 pounds when Pruitt arrived from Florida State.
