1. OL Elgton Jenkins
In all honesty, Elgton Jenkins should’ve been an All-Pro last season. What more does he have to prove? Jenkins spent time at literally every position along the offensive line and dominated at each one. That’s unheard of.
At his preferred left guard position, Jenkins was named a Pro Bowler. According to ESPN, Jenkins’ pass block win rate was 94 percent, tied for sixth-best among guards in the NFL.
CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco’s rankings of the NFL’s top 100 players for 2021 includes Jenkins, and Prisco wrote that he “is a power player who should be one of the league’s best this season”.
We don’t yet know whether Jenkins will stay at guard this season or move to tackle or center. It’s possible he’ll play a combination of the three over the course of the season. But no matter where Jenkins plays, he’s dominant at each position.
Aaron Donald wasn’t 100 percent healthy in the divisional-round loss to the Packers, but he had no success up against Jenkins. Along with center Corey Linsley, Jenkins kept Donald quiet in that playoff victory.
Entering his third season, Jenkins is only getting better. After making his first Pro Bowl last year, Jenkins can be an All-Pro for the first time in 2021.
