Re: Kiper's midseason opinion
Jenkins would be a wasted pick. DT isn't a huge priority right now, especially in the flashes that McLendon has shown. Granted, Jenkins can play 3-4 DE as well, but with another 8 games and offseason to grow I trust Heyward and Hood to take the necessary steps in not only stepping up their physical play but maturing.
Safety and OLB are much, much bigger needs right now than DT/DE.
