Jarvis Jenkins scouting report

Jarvis Jenkins DT Clemson
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 310

Decent athleticism considering his size; does a nice job getting into the backfield. Three-year starter with plenty of experience against top competition. Big enough to play nose tackle.
Not a threat to get to the quarterback – more of a space eater than anything. Missed one game with a MCL sprain in 2010. Doesn’t have the elite size or strength to make him an obvious fit at nose tackle, but he lacks the athleticism to play end in a 3-4.
Jenkins potentially has the size to play nose tackle, but he lacks the elite strength that most NFL nose tackles have. He probably isn’t ready to for a starting role immediately, but if he can add 10-15 pounds of muscle without losing his quickness he could potentially be a mid-round steal.
