Meet Your Draft Pick: Jarvis Jenkins



    The Redskins used their second round, 41st overall pick in the NFL draft to pick up lineman Jarvis Jenkins.

    The move is designed to beef up the team’s poorly ranked defense and should make a great addition to the already drafted Ryan Kerrigan.

    But who is Jarvis Jenkins?

    Height: 6’4”
    Weight: 310
    College: Clemson
    Nickname: None now, but if his new teammates see him dancing in the end of the video below, it could soon be "Bernie"
    Twitter: Not yet. Get on that, Jarvis!

    Like his fellow draft pick Ryan Kerrigan, he’ll do whatever Shanahan asks of him.

    “I can get in and do whatever anybody asks me,” he told the Post. “I’m all about winning. I’ll sit there on two knees if that’s what they want me to do.”

    Move over, John Wall and your Dougie. Jarvis is bringing the Bernie to town.
