2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Malcolm Jenkins Profile

Strengths: Outstanding size for the position ... Consistently productive ... Very instinctive; keys in on the QBs eyes ... Soft hands and is a game-changer getting INTs ... Times jump balls at apex to break them up ... Teams do not go after him in red zone ... Big-time hitter and really lays the wood ... Very aware in zone coverage ... Eliminates space when QB delivers ball to break up passes ... Good tackling technique ... Jumps routes ... Smart and does the little things ... Stays low out of backpedal ... Knows how to jam receivers and take them out of their routes; frustrates opponents and gets in their heads ... Very competitive and is a winner ... Huge leader and team captain.

Weaknesses: Questionable long speed and does get beaten deep occasionally ... Lacks fluid hips ... Struggles when changing directions ... Sold on double move easily ... Range is inconsistent ... Can he run with No. 1 receivers? ... Might have to move to safety ... Timed speed is important for re-evaluation on tape.

Summary: Jenkins is a very physical corner who knows how to play the game, but you have to wonder if he has the speed to hold up in the NFL. Might have to make the move to safety. Top intangibles, but is it enough? Great fit for Tampa-2 schemes.

Player Comparison: Antrel Rolle. Rolle was pretty much the same prospect Jenkins is when he came out for the NFL Draft in 2005. Rolle was also a big hitter, team leader, but with questionable speed who eventually moved to safety for Arizona.
