Pos: 
Full-time starter the past two seasons who earned multiple All-America honors as a senior. Tough, slug-it-out blocker who can be used at center or guard. Fires off the snap, quickly gets into blocks and shows strength at the point. Dominant force in the middle of the line who drives defenders from the action and opens up running lanes. Starts with good knee bend and pad level and effectively executes the shotgun snap. Very effective with his hands and keeps his feet moving. Works well with linemates and effectively quarterbacks the offensive line. Nasty and fights to finish blocks.
Neg: 
Stiff and struggles to adjust. Often beaten off the snap by opponents.
Analysis: 
Jenkins was a terrific college center with a developing game who comes with a high upside. He possesses an NFL build and growth potential and could be a long-time starter if properly developed.
