Malcom Jenkins is fast...

by: Chris Sullivan

...but not fast enough. According to Mike Florio over at ProFootballTalk.com, Jenkins has clocked 4.52 and 4.58 times in the forty-yard dash. This is slower than many scouts were saying he needed to run (4.45 was the golden number). This affects his top-10 draft slot and knocks him far from #4, most think. We'll see how it goes. Lets not forget that Josh Wilson and Kelly Jennings are two of our faster players (at least Wilson is), but both still got beat quite a bit. Jenkins has the technique and size that both of them lack which allows him to be physical and out-play his opponent. If he can wow at the OSU pro-day, he could still be in consideration.
