AJ Jenkins, WR, Illinois
40 Time: 4.37
Grade: 6.4 (Grading Scale)
We first really took notice of Illinois WR AJ Jenkins while scouting at the Northwestern vs Illinois game. He lit up the Wildcats that day, and will hope to do the same as an injury addition to the Senior Bowl.
After walkthroughs on Friday, AJ spent some time with NEPD Writer Mike Loyko.
Jenkins talks about what NFL teams have asked him to improve on, how his senior year was different at Illinois, and what he would bring to an NFL team.
Jenkins is currently our 13th ranked receiver for the 2012 NFL Draft.
