2. NY Jets draft target: Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma State

Don’t let Teven Jenkins’ appearance fool you, because he’s a bad, bad man.

Jenkins played a lot of snaps at right tackle, which makes him a great fit with the Jets. Since they already have Becton at left tackle, Jenkins could slide in nicely as George Fant’s replacement.

Or they could opt to move him inside to guard which has been proposed as well. At 6-foot-6, 315 pounds, he’s a big body that excelled in pass protection at Oklahoma State.

Jordan Reid of The Draft Network had a great description of Jenkins, describing his high-intensity, even after the whistle.

“A quick setter that’s prone to take horizontal pass sets, he’s created a habit of establishing quick wins by striking his hands and controlling defenders. As a run blocker, he’s able to create considerable amounts of movement when able to gain momentum prior to engagement points.

A well above average finisher, Jenkins is the type of offensive lineman that attempts to humiliate players in the opposite color jersey. The echo of the whistle doesn’t slow down his process and he continues on with his process until he wants to conclude.”

CBS Sports has Jenkins ranked as the fifth-best lineman in the 2021 NFL Draft, and it’s at least semi-realistic that he’ll be available at the No. 23 pick.

If Jenkins gets selected prior to the Jets being able to select him, hopefully this next player is available for them, instead.
