Re: New Orleans Saints' rookie John Jenkins transitioning to NFL

He was projected as a 1st rounder in most mock drafts. He had really dominant moments in the SEC. He'll end up being considered a steal. I think our draft might produce several gems. I have a good feeling about everybody, even Kenny Stills.

I haven't seen him play yet, but I did see some high lights and wasn't impressed. He seems lethargic and doesn't seem to move well. I am holding off making any determinations until I see him live at TC.

But in his defense, I rarely see 350# DT's move well.

Wasn't he closer to 400 when playing at Georgia? He dropped like 45 lbs. for the combine, hopefully he keeps his weight at an acceptable level...

I think he'll contribute in a rotation, but I think 2014 is the year he opens up a can on everyone.
Yep, he isn't going to start from day one and that's unrealistic to think that. It'll be Bunkley at NT to start. Hopefully mid way though the season Jenkins is coming along nicely and is a big part of this defense, But I wouldn't bet on it. 2014 is when I'm expecting big things from Jenkins.

Re: New Orleans Saints' rookie John Jenkins transitioning to NFL

Any time you look at a nose tackle on tape and focus on him you're going to think he's not working hard sometimes. But those guys aren't always supposed to be rushing the passer. Most of the time they're just supposed to take up the guard and center and if they don't get a big push right away they back off and try to knock down a pass.

I've seen plenty of highlights of Jenkins where he slides down the line or gets back to make a tackle. Not worried about his drive at all. Besides, he's not a starter. That's Bunkley's job.
