no arguing with that five except trying to find a spot for rambo. GO DAWGS!
A couple of quick thoughts:
John Jenkins had statistically a great season in 2012. 50 tackles from a 3-4 DE (and sometimes NT) is flat out amazing.
Sometimes, he did appear tentative on his block (the cut blocks by Southern and GT changed him a bit, imo). But the end result was a bunch of tackles on the other side of the line of scrimmage where he showed hustle finishing off plays (typically 4-5 yards downfield... but that's a spot where you want the playside ILB and S making the play. Credit to Jenkins for getting down the line and showing a Jarvis Jones type hustle on the backside).
Jarvis has the best motor that I've ever seen from a college player. He tracked down more plays from behind than anyone I can remember. It didn't matter if it was 7-10 yards in the backfield or 20 yards upfield. He played everywhere because his legs never stopped hustling. 24.5 tackles for a loss. 20 qb hurries. 7 forced fumbles. OMG. Considering the hype that went to Te'o and Clowney, I think that the national media under-values what Jarvis brings to the game (the NFL scouts have noticed, however).
