2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

University of Georgia defensive tackle Jonathan Jenkins is a big time space eater that can occupy multiple blockers and collapse the pocket through the middle. At 6'3" and 351 lbs., Jenkins has the potential to be a nose tackle in 3-4 schemes and a legitimate two-down 4-3 defensive tackle.

Jenkins flashes his best skills against the run. He can cover two gaps with his girth alone. Average burst off the line and can anchor well, even versus double teams. Technically lacking in some regards, specifically hand combat and hand placement. Must learn to keep his outside arm free more consistently in order to grab hold of the ball-carrier, and part of this technique is establishing position with his feet first.

Pass-rushing is lacking and lacks reliable moves to break blocks. In order to become a more proficient pass blocker, he must sink in with his hips and drive from his feet and through his body more often. He will wear down later in games and tends to lean on players rather than really getting after it. Jenkins has a solid motor though and can play with a nasty attitude when properly motivated.

Jenkins projects as a late-first to mid-second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
