Cowboys’ Potential Draft Pick: Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

At NBC, I posted a scouting report on Georgia defensive tackle Jonathan Jenkins and explained why I think he won’t be an option for Dallas.

When you have a guy who is 359 pounds, weight is going to be a concern. Even though the name of his game is size and power, you’d think Jenkins could still play the way he wants at, say, 330 pounds. That would give him a little more speed and stamina throughout games, which are things he needs. Jenkins has a nice bull rush at times, but it rarely comes out when he’s fatigued.

For someone so big, though, I don’t see Jenkins playing with as much power as what I’ve heard. He’s obviously not going to run around interior linemen on a consistent basis, but he still gets blown back at the point-of-attack when he’s tired. I watched every play from the Florida game and the SEC Championship, and I just didn’t see the hype.

Check it out at NBC.
