Big Play Ability
A mauler of an OT who consistently creates movement off the snap, aims to punish every play, and opens up rush lanes with destructive down blocks. At his best when moving in space, Jenkins does a great job of doubling D-linemen, eliminating them from the play before peeling off to target an LB in the second level. His shorter limbs put him at a disadvantage when reaching blocking against long armed defenders and has to heavily rely on inside leverage technique, brute strength, and relentless effort.
Featuring a quick pass set, a well balanced wide base, and solid anchor ability but is forced to often lung to close the gap. Resets well and has a death grip that makes it near impossible for D-linemen to disengage once he's locked on. Consistently mirrors defenders footwork but could improve upon his choppy kick slide. Prone to struggle against elite speeders who can beat him to the corner and rushers who can control the distance. Packs power in his punch and has to utilize hand fighting technique regularly to compensates for his reach.
Ability to Combat Inside Move

Jenkins is likely versatile enough to play across the O-line but his measurables could force teams to side him inside.
