Washington Redskins select Jarvis Jenkins
By ESPN.com staff
The Washington Redskins select Clemson defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins with the No. 41 overall pick on Friday.
Scouts Inc. analysis of Jenkins:
Pros: At his best versus the run. Quick first step and generally gets some penetration or at least good initial positioning. Does a solid job with his hand placement when taking on blocks in the run game. Flashes disruptive qualities and makes a lot of plays in the backfield.
Cons: Moves well for his size and shows some initial power as a bull rusher but lacks elite lower-body strength to consistently drive OL back and collapse the pocket. Vanilla as a pass rusher and struggles to counter when reached. Uses spin move too much and rarely is effective. Sack production was underwhelming at collegiate level.
