Alex Jenkins, our 133rd ranked defensive end, is best suited to
be a depth backup. We project he will end up with the San Francisco 49ers because they
could use a player of this quality to play defensive end. The 49ers
currently have 7 healthy defensive ends, and 5 are
rated better than Jenkins: (Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Charles Omenihu, Kerry Hyder, and Kemoko Turay).
The 49ers currently have no
defensive ends under contract beyond the 2026 season,
so Jenkins may only be getting a short term deal, considering his age, with the team.
