Conference: Non-Division I
40 Time: 4.95
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a junior and named All-American as a senior. Totals last year included 38/16/11 with one interception and five pass break ups. Junior totals included 55/22.5/11.5.
Positives: "Undersized yet explosive small school pass rusher who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Breaks down well, plays with terrific leverage, and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Quickly changes direction with the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack, makes plays down the line of scrimmage in pursuit, and effectively redirects the ball carrier. Plays with excellent balance and body control. Rarely off his feet and wraps up tackling."
Negatives: Easily out-positioned from the action by a single opponent. Lacks overall bulk. Poor size/speed numbers.
Analysis: Jenkins has done a tremendous job the past two seasons and has been one of the best pass rushers at the small school level. He plays faster than his forty time and could have a home in the NFL as a pass rush specialist.
