Strong Points

Super-sized safety with athleticism and speed. Big hitter, can tackle in tight or in the open field. Has range to the sideline. Good instincts. Has good ball skills. Can break on the ball quickly. Alert zone coverage guy.

Weak Points

Often will line up 15 yards from the line of scrimmage, leaving him with too much cushion on underneath routes. So aggressive he gets out of control at times and misses tackles. Don't see much in man coverage.

The Way We See It

Jenkins is a fifth-year senior and a three-year starter. He missed the 2014 season with an injury suffered in preseason. Has great size and is a very aggressive run-support player. Plays well in zone, showing anticipation and range. Reacts well to the ball in the air and has good hands. His best position at the next level is at strong safety, though he can play free. With his size, he might also get a look at the nickel linebacker position. He would be very good with matchups against tight ends and backs. Has outstanding special-teams potential.
