Positives: "Athletic defensive line prospect who can be used at tackle or as a two-gap end. Displays great quickness, explodes off the snap, and shows an outstanding first step to the action. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt, plays with leverage and smooth making plays in any direction of the field. Pursues the action to the sidelines and shows speed up the field."
Negatives: Easily disrupted by blocks and out-positioned by opponents. Must develop more moves with his hands. Must improve his overall playing strength.
Analysis: Jenkins is an athletically gifted prospect who moves well about the field. He lacks strength at the point of attack and at this point is mostly a first-step lineman. Jenkins offers growth potential and has starting possibilities in the NFL if he improves his playing strength.
