I have seen you say this about Jenkins numerous times, and it is rediculous. Has he lost a lot of weight? Yes, but that shows dedication, not lazyness. He is no longer overweight, and IMO he never was Lazy. He was a poor student, and struggled with college, but never football. Him loseing the wieght is a good sign, and the team that drafts him will offer him all the tools he needs to keep the weight off. He had good college production, and he offers great upside as a NT within our system. We would finally have that space eating NT we have never had since transitioning to the 3-4. Going into the off season he was largely regarded as the #2 NT in the draft, and is quite possibly the most pure NT prospect in the draft. I like Jesse Williams as well, and would be fine with either one, which is why my drafts throughout the offseason have featured both. Jenkins, IMO, if he can sustain his new weight, offers more upside than Jesse williams as a pure NT. Guy is extremely athletic for his size, and he is a monster. Our dline on first and second down would be unstopabale with a guy like Jenkins eating space in the middle. He had a good combine, looked great at the senior bowl, and performed will against top OL competition in college, includeing warmack.
Also you can never have too many RB's in Harbaughs system. Davis would offer insurance in case Gore goes down. LMJ, and Hunter have similar skillsets, and are both promising, but neither is a replacment for Gore. Davis offers a combo of speed and size that is rare at the RB position.
