ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper said the combine workout was going to be the most important for one particular player, Ohio State CB Malcolm Jenkins.
“Malcolm Jenkins if he’s runs a great 40 time could be a top 10 pick,” said Kiper on a national conference call February 11. “If not he could be viewed as a safety. I think this combine is as important for him as anybody in this draft.”
After his 40 time today, Jenkins move to safety may have already been penciled in for a lot of NFL teams. Jenkins ran a 4.56 and a 4.52 at the combine. The 40 time isn’t the end all, be all, but it was more important for Jenkins than others. I think he’s going to have to shave off about a tenth of a second at his pro day to convince NFL scouts he can play cornerback.
