Admiral Farragut alumnus Rayshawn Jenkins drafted by Chargers
Former Admiral Farragut multi-position star Rayshawn Jenkins, who made 33 career starts at Miami, was drafted Saturday in the fourth round (113th overall) by the Chargers.
The second 'Canes player drafted behind first-round TE David Njoku, Jenkins sparkled at the NFL Scouting Combine, hoisting 19 reps on the bench press and recording a 37-inch vertical leap.
He had 76 tackles and two interceptions at safety for the 'Canes this past season. Two of his seven pass breakups occurred against FSU. He finished his college career with nine picks.
Jenkins' prolific prep career included a Class 1A state title in the 110-meter hurdles as a Farragut junior.
