- 2013 NFL DRAFT RANG'S GANG: DT: John Jenkins, Georgia, 6-4, 346, 5.23...Jenkins has been known to let his weight get out of control, but that is the only reason I can see as to why he won't prove to be a quality defender in the NFL. He is remarkably light on his feet for a man of his size and has excellent power. He's too wide to offer much as a pass-rusher but hustles. Perhaps most intriguing, he stood out in Georgia's biggest games, especially against Alabama, Florida and South Carolina. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
