    Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB FSU

    I am just curious what everyone's thoughts on this kid is. I am just weeding through prospects that the Steelers might target in rounds 2-4 at OLB.

    we'll find out more in a few days at FSUs pro day workouts

    you should know that Jenkins missed practically the entire season with a Lisfranc injury.

    The more interesting FSU pass rusher in this draft is Tank Carradine. Who unbeknownst to many, has the best pure first step and explosion off the line of any "hand on the ground" pass rusher in this draft. But he also is coming off injury this season.

    Carradine is a legitimate late 1st/2nd round prospect.

    Jenkins is more of a project with limited upside. He is NOT a 2nd/3rd round pick. I wouldn't be surprised if he's not drafted through the first 5 rounds

    Thanks. I've read that if Carradine did not have that knee injury that he could possibly be a top 10 pick. He is all over the place in all the mock drafts I've seen. Anywhere from 10th (Titans) to mid 3rd round.

    I keep thinking of Everette Brown. The 2nd round bust from a few years back.

    I like jenkins a lot, seems like hes had a rough offseason recovering from the lisfranc. Was running around a 5.0 40 and isnt looking as quick or comfortable as hoped. Definitely better than the combine though.

    Werner apparently looked good in LB drills today, im glad he did some because i was pretty curious. Hes one of the hardest players for me to place

    Williams from Uconn is a little light to play olb only 243lbs sio moore is the more interesting ILB also The CB'S for uconn gratz and wreh-wilson are fantastic over 6' foot and very fast
