Scouting Report/Player Notes

Big, strong defensive tackle prospect who appears to be an ideal nose tackle for the NFL level. Already has experience playing in a 3-4 and already has just as good if not better production than Kansas City Chiefs 2012 first round pick Dontari Poe. Jenkins nearly declared for the 2012 NFL draft but now anchors a Georgia defensive line for the 2012 season, a line that will be among the best in all of college football. He is a massive space eater who has a good bull rush, and can anchor well against the run. Capable of taking on and beating double teams, and gets good pressure on the QB (10 QB hurries in ’11). Had an interception in the Outback Bowl against Michigan State, but came up injured on the play so that is something to monitor going forward. He started his collegiate career at Gulf Coast Community College, and only has one year of SEC football under his belt. He has first round talent if he can put it all together. Players with his size and production don’t often last long on draft day, unless they have serious character flaws.
