2012 Highlight/Lowlight: Brandon Jenkins showed impressive ability as a pass rusher at FSU, but he suffered a Lisfranc injury in his left foot in the 2012 opening game. He did not have much time to show off his impressive rushing skills in 2012, but his college career is filled with highlights. Below is his college highlight reel so you can get a sneak peak at this new Redskin.

What is coming in 2013: Jenkins will have to compete with an already very talented group of outside linebackers for playing time this season. It’s tough to imagine him starting a game with Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, and Rob Jackson ahead of him on the depth chart as long as they are healthy. Because of the devastating nature of his injury, Jenkins may not be healthy enough to play at the beginning of the 2013 season, although his health is improving. He could end up being red-shirted his rookie year and have to focus on getting healthy.
