Rayshawn Jenkins S

With Elder, Jenkins was one of the leaders of the Miami defense in 2016. He led the team in tackles throughout most of the season before finally finishing third behind Jamal Carter and Shaquille Quarterman. He also had seven passes defended which was second to Elder.

Jenkins added 4.5 tackles for loss to his other on-field accomplishments. That earned him third team All-ACC.

Both CBS and NFL.Com are impressed with Jenkins size and aggressiveness. He also has good speed for a safety. He was clocked at 4.51 in the 40.

Jenkins has shown the skills throughout his time at Miami to force turnovers. In his four seasons on the field at the U, Jenkins had nine interceptions and one forced fumble.

The two biggest criticisms of Jenkins is that he too often goes for the big hit instead of just wrapping up the ball carrier and that he isn’t instinctual.

ESPN recently named Miami as the best school to produce defensive backs. Jenkins will get a chance somewhere to be a starter during his NFL Career. Jenkins is projected by NFL.Com to be selected in the third to the fourth round and to go in the fifth per CBS.
