Draft Scout News
10/15/14 - LB Jelani Jenkins is the team leader in tackles with 44. Jenkins remains among the team's best surprises after filling in for Dannell Ellerbe (season-ending hip injury).
09/24/14 - LB Jelani Jenkins (abdomen), tied for the NFL lead with 35 tackles, was limited in Wednesday's practice. Jenkins, valued for his intelligence and pass coverage, has showed good sideline-to-sideline ability in this season.
09/22/14 - WLB Jelani Jenkins (14 tackles, 1.5 sacks, forced fumble vs. Kansas City) is turning out to be a pleasant surprise. He was regarded as mostly a pass coverage LB last year, but is playing aggressively against the run.
09/18/14 - WLB Jelani Jenkins started the week tied for fifth in the NFL with 20 tackles. Jenkins replaced Dannell Ellerbe (hip), who was injured in the opener.
06/19/14 - LB Jelani Jenkins, who ended last season pushing for time in the nickel package, has continued his surge with a strong offseason for the Miami Dolphins.
"He has good play speed," head coach Joe Philbin said of the second-year player from Florida. "And I think part of that is because he's an intelligent player. He's a guy that, if you're teaching a concept or scheme or blitz or coverage, he's not what we would call a high-rep guy. He picks things up quickly.
"I noticed him today, one time in punt protection, working with (running back Mike) Gillislee on a twist and (it was) kind of effortless, kind of smooth. He's athletic."
