JARVIS JENKINS: Clemson, 6037 309 5.08. Three-year starter. Active in his play. Try hard, good effort player who will finish pursuit to the perimeter. Quick first step. Gets his hands up and into the throwing lane. Physical against the run when he gets his pad level down. Has a tendency to play high. Works his feet and hands to press the pocket and rush the quarterback. Plays in a front rotation where he is always fresh. Doesn’t stay blocked. Quick to disengage and separate from the blocker. Can stack and hold his ground against double teams. Needs to develop his pass rush moves. Basically uses the bull rush and tries to overpower the blocker. That rarely happens on the next level. A reactive player who has a nose for the ball. Has functional strength but needs more upper and lower body strength. Possibly a two gap 3-4 defensive end. Will struggle at nose tackle because he plays high. 2010 stats: 39 tackles, 8 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.95, right 2.05. OSR:20/25. Third/ fourth round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 5/8, BP-17, 10-1.81).
