Clemson’s Jenkins doing well

Clemson will be boasting another top ranked draft choice this spring in junior eligible Da’Quan Bowers, but one of his linemates has put in a pretty good week in Mobile.

DT Jarvis Jenkins has been one half of a very good interior duo with Baylor’s Phil Taylor. Jenkins and his Clemson DT teammate Brandon Thompson were instrumental in getting Bowers a lot of single blocks instead of double teams because they were such good penetrators this season. It helped Bowers pile up 17 sacks this past year.

With Bills GM Buddy Nix stating Wednesday in an interview with that they’ll be looking to add a couple of more defensive linemen this offseason I asked Jenkins for his thoughts about possibly joining his former college teammate C.J. Spiller in Buffalo.

“C.J. is in a class of his own,” said Jenkins. “A real good guy, real humble. It would be an honor to be on a team with him, but we’ll see how it works out.”

Jenkins is forecast as a late second or early third-round pick.
