Draft Rewind 2008 - Mike Jenkins - Dallas Cowboys

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MIKE JENKINS: South Florida, 5102 197 4.42. Three-year starter. Six career interceptions. Cut tackler, not a wrap up. Needs to improve footwork in man to man coverage. Good instincts, but has consistent breakdowns in technique. Plays corner like a safety, but doesn’t tackle as well. Flashes a closing burst. Can stick his foot in the ground and drive on the ball. Improved in supporting the run but still takes bad angles. Looks like a Cover-2 press corner that could also play off. His hip tightness is apparent in the BTR drill where the times should correlate with the athlete’s 40-yard time. Should contribute on special teams coverage. Has talent but is getting a free pass on numerous shortcomings that need to be addressed and improved upon. Consistency, mental toughness, coverage discipline, and attitude all need an adjustment. OSR:20/32. BTR:left 4.62, right 4.64. First/ second round. (A-32 1/8, H-9 1/4, SS-4.45, VJ-34).
