NFL Prospect Preview: Georgia DT John Jenkins

Beefy.  At 346-pounds, Jenkins is the biggest of the defensive lineman in the top tier which could make him an ideal fit in a 3-4 defense.  Jenkins will have an easy time eating space but will he be able to control his weight?  That remains to be seen.  Jenkins was once in the 370-380 range.  The "lighter" he gets, the more disruptive he can be as he is athletic for a big guy.

Here is my conversation with Jonathan Branch of DawgPost.com on Jenkins

Like all the defensive tackles in this range, it would not be a shock to see Jenkins in Green and Gold.  Jenkins, more than the others, could put the future plans of Ted Thompson at the position into focus.  B.J Raji is in a contract year and Ryan Pickett's career is winding down.  Jenkins, as a NT, could be the future if the Packers go that way.
