Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

no doubting his talent at all. I see pro bowl FS written all over him.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

I believe he has done very well this year, yes, he still has a lot to learn. He should only get better. I do agree that he looks like he has the potential to be an all pro FS.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Yeah he is a tad slow for the speedy recievers..its obvious...just look at the Foreskins game...he played catchup allday...and he better stop with that holding thing..he just needs to be more physical at the line...i think he's good at that...I dunno

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Malcolm is a good corner but will be a great safety. But seeing that Sharper and Harper is a great combination already. NO would get justice putting him at Nickel Back

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

I would say inconsistent. As a special teams player, AWESOME

As a CB, Inconsistent. He played great against the patriots but not so hot against the skins.

Disagree with that. He bit on fakes, then caught up. You don't catch up unless you have speed, which he has shown he has numerous times this year.

He has fantastic closing speed.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Just saying that because he has a tendancy to bit on fakes, if some does not think he can be a corner, what makes anyone think he can be an All Pro safety? That not a trait one would want at either positions.

Though the past two games he's looked completely overmatched and overwhelmed, it's all a learning process and he's still a rookie. He's definitely not as polished as one would want, but in the end he'll be just fine where he's at. He's fast and smart enough to continue to grow into a fine talent at either position. I can remember many clamoring for him to start this season... with his play of late, I'm sure one could see the reason why he was sitting at the bottom of the depth chart. If we went into the playoffs with Jenkins starting at one side, I'd be pretty worried.

As far as a grade is concerned, C/C-.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

there is a difference between game speed and regular speed. idk if guys know what i mean. this kid can keep up.. i have seen him kept up with some speedy WR. i seem him excelling at FS and maybe the nickel like tracy did. But give him another year and he will be in his true potential. plus its too early to rate a rookie. by his third we should be able to rate him properly.. i have soo much confidence in this guy.. he can do it.. and plus once sharper retires.. looks like we might have a new FS in the midst.. also, give him more time to study GW's scheme.. im sure he's just adjusting to it. thats just IMO. oh and grade? ill give a C+ solely because of his ST plays.

Re: Rating Malcolm Jenkins

Ok...maybe so..he just seems to be trailing all the time ..maybe he can learn to be fast...I could see him being a great safety...or nickel back... This new kid Marcus Mcauley?.....he has the speed ..lets see if he can be coached up...i luv the way Jenkins plays ST...he has that down...and he's a rook so maybe time will tell...
