BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior-year totals included 40/3/12 after 27/11/15 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Natural cover corner with terrific size and speed. Fluid transitioning off the line, easily runs with opponents anywhere on the field, and positions himself to make a play on the ball. Immediately locates the pass in the air. Has a quick move to the throw and a burst of closing speed. Plays with a lot of suddenness, flashing on the scene and displaying good hands for the pick. Correctly anticipates his pass defenses, plays with an aggressive style, and will defend the run. Positively impacts the game returning kicks.
NEGATIVES: Not a sure tackler. Can be slow to react with his back to the ball.
ANALYSIS: Jenkins comes off a terrific senior campaign and has established himself as the premier cornerback in the nation. He possesses the skills necessary to quickly transition into a starting role at the next level.
