Brandon Jenkins: Video Highlights for Former Florida State OLB

0 of 5

    Brandon Jenkins was labeled as a premier pass-rusher after his 2010 season yielded 13.5 sacks. 

    He wasn't as productive in 2011 with Florida State, totaling only eight quarterback takedowns. 

    The 6'3'', 265-pound edge-rusher returned for his senior season in 2012, but he played in only one game due to a Lisfranc injury in his foot. 

    Undoubtedly an explosive defender, he comes with major injury concerns. 

    Here are some of the top plays of Brandon Jenkins' collegiate career.  

Speed Rush Sack vs. Miami in 2011

1 of 5

    When healthy, Jenkins typically displayed an explosive first step off the line, and he certainly demonstrated it on this play. 

    He was the first Seminole off the line of scrimmage at the snap and seemed to surprise left tackle Brandon Washington at the point of attack. 

    Washington actually pushed Jenkins off his intended path, but Jenkins naturally bounced off and dipped around the edge en route to quarterback Jacory Harris, showcasing plenty of speed and hustle.

Tackle on Reverse vs. Wake Forest in 2010

2 of 5

    Jenkins exhibited fine discipline and athleticism on this particular play. 

    He was initially blocked by the H-back who came in motion, and Jenkins set the edge nicely.

    However, there appeared to be a gaping hole for the Wake Forest runner. 

    But at the perfect time, Jenkins used strong arms to shed the blocker and take down the ball-carrier for a minimal gain on 4th-and-4.

Tackle for Loss vs. Boston College in 2010

3 of 5

    Jenkins wasn't blocked on this play, but his pure speed was extremely noticeable. 

    Trailing from the backside, he was able to accelerate quickly to reach the Eagles running back before he even got back to the line of scrimmage. 

Speed Rush Sack vs. Boston College in 2010

4 of 5

    On this play, Jenkins was amazingly quick off the snap, which put the Boston College left tackle in a tough position, so he attempted to chop block out of desperation. 

    With a full head of steam, Jenkins hopped over the low block and easily sacked the quarterback. 

Sack vs. North Carolina in 2010

5 of 5

    On this play, Jenkins was decently blocked by the North Carolina left tackle. As he reached out to block Jenkins, the Florida State edge-rusher stepped further to the outside. 

    Jenkins was blocked, but even when engaged, he was able to continue on his path to Tar Heels quarterback T.J. Yates.
