3. DT Kris Jenkins

Jenkins has been rising up draft boards, as a season in which the Wolverines beat the stuffing out of anyone who dared to challenge them on the defensive side of the ball is surely going to make you more attractive as an individual player. Jenkins could be a Raven on Day 2 if Justin Madubuike prices himself out of a return.

Jenkins' pass rush upside might not be the most amazing when compared to some of the top IDL prospects in this class (just 4.5 sacks in the last two seasons), but he more than makes up for that with some very impressive run-stuffing skills and as much pound-for-pound strength as any lineman.

Kris Jenkins could supplement the Baltimore Ravens' defensive line

For as deadly as Baltimore's arguably league-best defense was under Macdonald, moving the ball against this rush defense (13th in yards per game) than their nigh unstoppable pass defense. Jenkins is a rock-solid 3-tech with the versatility to move around the line if needed.

For years, the Chargers had one of the squishiest defensive lines in the league, as they were routinely gushed for big gains. Jim could target Jenkins with a mid-round pick, but reuniting with former Wolverines teammate David Ojabo in Baltimore could still be on the table.
