Here's the NFL.com draft profile on Jenkins:

NFL Comparison
Joe Thuney

Overview
NFL-ready frame with broad chest and thick lower half. Jenkins not only plays with excellent upper-body power and hand strength, he combines it with a desired level of body control and athleticism to create a consistent, toolsy talent. His instincts and processing serve him well in quickly sifting through moving pieces. He can be an intolerant run blocker, looking to finish and bury his opponent once he gets his block locked and centered. Jenkins has good tackle tape, but his short arms and average range in pass sets could be something to keep an eye on. Whether it is at tackle or guard, Jenkins has the talent to become an early starter and a successful pro.

Strengths
-Split low with wide frame, good power and excellent body control.
-Instinctive feel for positioning and quick to adjust his blocks when needed.
-Powerful core allows him to base up and flatten the edge for running backs.
-Full sustain mode closes door once his hands lock in.
-Ready and willing to bury his man.
-Plays under squared pads as a climbing blocker.
-Athleticism for smooth drift from block to block on second level.
-Quick to set out on wide-angle rushers and close the distance.
-Keeps hands back until his target is within range.
-Strong, sure hands clench up and stall rush attack.
-Capable hand fighting to recapture control.
-Solid mirror and redirection win space.

Weaknesses
-Very short arms for tackle position.
-Lack of length shows up when trying to hit redirect block at the top of rush.
-Longer defenders can stab and separate from him.
-Could struggle to gain enough depth against speed rush.
-Displays slight inconsistencies with weight dispersal.
-Loses contact with run blocks, showing occasional leaning.
-Some scouts voiced concerns about football character.

The Big Ten is taking a beating. They've drafted just about the entire Alabama team. It is as if no NFL personnel subscribed to BTN. Aside from us liking football in general, all the B1G players played for nothing.

Playing in the national title game helps. Having as many picks in 1st round as '04 Miami team helps too.

Here's the NFL.com draft profile on Kendrick Green:

NFL Comparison
Isaac Seumalo

Overview
Durable three-year starter with above-average initial quickness. Capable of playing guard or center, Green's lateral get-off makes him a natural fit for teams heavy into outside zone as a primary run scheme. He can get to play-side reach and back-side cuts and he specializes in washing his defender out of the play once he's engaged on the move. He plays a little too upright at times and lacks the length and drive power in his lower half to move one-on-one blocks around with adequate sustain. The run blocking will stand out to evaluators, but recognition inconsistencies in pass protection might cause some concerns. His center/guard flexibility is an advantage and teams could go either way with how they want to use him. Green has the potential to become a starter at the next level.

Strengths
-Offers guard and center starting experience.
-Off the ball in a hurry, gaining lateral ground with ease.
-Impressive ability to reach and wall-off from a gap away.
-Accelerates through contact, creating wash-down momentum.
-Pushes down-block out of the gap.
-Short-area quickness allows for tighter schedule on combos.
-Play-switch energy and fire from snap to whistle.
-Above-average getting into space on screen blocks.
-Resets his hands in order to gather pass rusher in front of him.
-Reactive athleticism to make sudden cut-offs in pass pro.

Weaknesses
-Too straight-legged up to second level.
-Inaccurate radar landing on pull and climb targets.
-Unable to neutralize power when heads up.
-Defenders are able to separate and play off his blocks.
-Shorter arms make block sustain a challenge.
-Struggled to dissect gaming fronts in 2019.
-Gets glued to twist action and misses incoming rusher.
-Overextends, allowing edge to soften.
