Denver Broncos: Full first-round mock draft with a QB at 9?
Pick by Brandon Miller
As the GM of the Jags, Trent Baalke should be THRILLED that Jenkins is still available at pick 25. After selecting golden boy Trevor Lawrence first overall, he sprints to the podium to select the 6-foot-6, 320-pound offensive tackle from Oklahoma State.
The Jaguars had by far one of the worst offensive lines in football last year, and they can’t willingly put Lawrence back there as it stands now. He’s already recovering from shoulder surgery, and they need to do everything they can to keep him upright and healthy for the next decade. Taking Jenkins is a great first step in the right direction.
Teven is an absolute mauler at the offensive tackle position. He’s started 35 games for Oklahoma State and wins with a lightning-quick punch that locks opposing rushers in vice grips.
As a finisher, I hope Jacksonville fans enjoy pancakes. That’s exactly what they’re going to be getting from Jenkins. He’s a starting tackle for Lawrence who’s only going to get better as he goes. With the depth of this offensive line class this year, Baalke would be wise to make multiple selections along the line to build his new franchise QB a fortress. Jenkins is just the start.
