Teven Jenkins

Height: 6’6″

Weight: 320 Lbs

Strengths: Having played both left and right tackle, Teven Jenkins is a mover of men. He keeps his knees bent and plays with a sound and powerful base. Along with that base, he plays with great leverage and anchor. When a pass rusher comes at him, Jenkins is able to absorb the contact and stand them up. Displays good hand usage that packs a very powerful punch.

Weaknesses: While you won’t overpower Jenkins, it is possible to run around him. Quickness is not a strength of Jenkins, as he is much better operating in short spaces. When he does pull and move in space, Jenkins has shown a tendency to over extend and end up on the ground. It feels like he either thinks he is moving faster than he is or believes his arms are longer than they are. With his powerful hands, Jenkins can get a little grabby. He will need to clean that up otherwise he will collect holding penalties at the next level.

Teven Jenkins is an interesting case study. While he projects the best in a man/power/gap scheme, I think his ability to block and prevent the man in front of him from getting into the backfield can translate well enough to help any scheme.
