Elgton Jenkins selected 44th overall by Green Bay Packers in NFL Draft

Jenkins, the newest Packer, will be heavily relied on and given the tough task of protecting one of the game’s best quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers.

Jenkins, whose motor is endless, will fit in perfectly with the Packers. Green Bay is getting a forceful lineman and sure starter. He plays with an edge and has unrivaled footwork. While he is currently a center, expect Jenkins to rotate along the Packers’ offense line. Under the stewardship of new head coach Matt LaFleur along with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, look for Jenkins to develop quickly in the frozen tundra.
