Packers Select Elgton Jenkins, Center in 2019 NFL Draft - Round 2

 

CAREER NOTES:

Jenkins was a three-star college prosect according to 247Sports. He started three games as a redshirt freshman and started five games as a sophomore and was ranked second in the SEC in pass blocking efficiency with 97.8 percentile. As a junior in 2017, he started all 13 games at center and was part of an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the SEC. As a senior in 2018, he started all 13 games, and was awarded the Kent Hull Trophy, whicih is the top offensive lineman in the state of Mississippi. Played 773 snaps and earned first-team All-America by The Athletic. Jenkins was the No. 1 center prospect according to NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper.

 

MEASURABLES/COMBINE:

n/a 40 / 29 bench press reps / 28 vert / 109 broad jump / 7.77 cone drill / 4.62 shuttle

 

SCOUTING REPORT:

NFL.COM:  Efficient if unexciting prospect with the size, power and length at center to match with a variety of interior challengers across from him. Jenkins has the core strength to handle down and base blocking duties, but he could leave offensive line coaches wanting more if asked to handle challenging blocks in space. His tape against the best SEC's best teams over his last two seasons indicates an ability to become an effective, early NFL starter.

The Draft Network:  Rarely blows assignments. Cerebrally, should impress coaches with his ability to recognize pressure and communicate at the pivot spot. Smart, well-spoken, considered the brain of the Mississippi State offensive line. Has played every position except right guard while in college. Despite listed size, doesn't play like he has overwhelming physical or athletic traits. Not explosive out of his stance and doesn't attack opponents with an aggressiveness that threatens their run fit off the snap. Can struggle to reach quicker players in zone schemes due to slow feet. Not a finisher. Needs to show more aggression and leg drive to latch and stay on defenders, too often doesn't sustain his blocks.

 

COMMENTARY

General Manager Brian Gutekunst is going back to what he said in his pre-draft presser: versatility. Jenkins can play any position on the line, which is very important given the fact that this offensive line seems to one or two injuries away from total devastation. Jenkins proved his mettle in the always tough SEC and is exactly the type of nasty, offensive lineman that this team needs. He may be asked to play guard before takiing right tackle Bryan Bulaga's job.

Luke Getsy was his OC last year. I cannot imagine them drafting Jenkins without Getsy signing off on his versatility and ability to thrive in the Packers offense. The draft is always some guesswork. But it is rare to have such informed guesswork as the Packers would have on this pick.

Good point and he’s a good player, I just thought they would look for someone who could get to the second level and finish better in space . They could have waited until #75 and got the same type of player, even possibly the same player.

Did Getsy run the ZBS last season? If not, I don’t think his endorsement is all that valuable.

Taylor will have something to say too on the G position and Jenkins is better than Madison and probably Taylor at this point. Also don´t forget next year is lst contract year for Taylor and Linsley and the cap hit will be 5,9M and 10,5M. I doubt that both are in the roster in 2020. Jenkins is a great pick for the outside zone that LaFleur runs. He can play G , and is and excelent C so maybe Linsley is not on the future plans of the Packers. I hope is not the case.

Turner can kick out and play RT should Bulaga get injured. Unless somethings radically changed in Spriggs game he could be on his way out in GB or maybe the 8th or 9th linemen out of 8 or 9.

Depending what Madison shows the Packers may not want to put him on the practice squad and risk losing him. It wouldn't surprise me much if Madison passes Spriggs even after a year off at either of the Guard positions. I'd be more than okay with Turner at RT, Jenkins at RG in a pinch should BB miss any time.

How do you get a dislike for this comment? Turner played RT for Denver last year so has proven ability to play that spot. Jenkins is a center/guard and would likely be first up to move should Turner need to move to RT. NP was just stating the obvious...….

Someone will get hurt. It's a tough sport. We really didn't have a good backup center... now we do. He also can back up guard and tackle. A very valuable piece, plus he just might be good enough to win one of the guard spots outright. He is a tough, smart guy. I like it. Plus, if Cole can play up to our original projection, he is a backup Tackle who can also play guard.

Jace S.
The concern: He’s not an awful blocker but he’s not a good one, either. The lack of elite speed could become a problem against the bigger, faster defenders he’ll face in the NFL. Some of the production is based on pure volume; his catch rate of 60.5 percent was one of the lowest among our top prospects. Really, though, there’s not a lot to nitpick.

Who are these experts that make the grades for picks? How do they get their credentials to be able to grade other peoples picks? They are experts because they said they are experts? I want to see some stats on these guys. Mel Kiper Pick success rate, grade correct rate under his name whenever he talks. Otherwise why is his point of view more important than any cranky dude here?

Seriously the most overevaluated thing in history - the NFL draft. The show I want to see is a reshowing of the 2014 0r 2015 draft with pick by pick analysis of what happened to this player and if the pick was successful or not. Way more interesting than pure guesswork like this stuff. I mean really, my crystal ball is as useful as these speculations, and my crystal ball is pretty dusty.

Excellent points Adorabelle. I’ve been hoping for years that someone would air a breakdown of the draft analyses of Mel Kiper, Trey Wingo, et al so we’d know just how accurate these people have been. Then we could grade their accuracy and factor that in to whatever comments they make. My guess is the networks won’t go near producing such a program for fear of exposing the actual accuracy levels of these “expert analysts”.

Or, if in fact he was correct 92% of the time when making such comments. Just for the sake of putting what they say in some kind of perspective.

TE
Josh Oliver

Josh Oliver is a player a lot of draft analysts pegged as a sleeper at the position would could turn into a top tight end in the NFL with some development. Oliver was actually recruited as a pass rusher, but he showed a knack on the offensive side of the ball and showed an ability to make athletic catches, noted for his ability to go up and get the ball.

I would take Sternberger. He will be Gronk! Oliver is slower. Bad past. Jace ran 4.75. Better route runner. Can Catch! If he hurdles just one tackler. He will be a hit.

Sternberger plays a lot faster than he times, he is so slick when he moves and in and out of his breaks.

Jenkins was a good value pick. He can play all three interior line positions. God forbid anything happens to CL, but at least they have a great fill-in should they need it. Keep AR upright and run the ball. He will help.

Jace sounds like another Richard Rogers.

Ah Doug your existence must be terrible if you're as negative in real life as you are here. Rodgers wasn't a consensus all American at the tight end position, nor did he rack up over 800 yards and ten touchdowns in one year. Stop flappin' your gums.

Dougie just needs his Avenger pajamas and his mama to send down his meatloaf. All his problems are solved.

Good solid pick to provide depth across the OL. Good to see some reinforcements for the OL. Thanks, Since ‘61

Versatility pick plus added depth for OL. Hopefully he can provide some much needed protection for AR.

The only thing I know for sure is that these four players represent our top six draft spots. I hope at least two of them can start, and the other two contribute soon.

"Mississippi RBs thrived running behind Jenkins."

Considering the offensive history behind some of our new coaches, I think this might be an important factor.

For that matter.. Building a strong run game and getting a sure-handed tight end definitely would make things easier for a back up... or young.. QB to take over if need be in the coming years.

With all the talk about getting a guard or tackle I was wondering who is our back up center should Corey go down. We just found him.
