2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
Jernigan put on a great show in the BCS National Championship, despite losing some gas late in the game. He was in the backfield constantly and that skill is one of his best attributes. Shoots the gap at an elite level due to his outstanding short-area quickness and speed. Can anchor the line well despite his average size. Can split double teams regularly when he can the make the most of his quickness. Elite center of gravity and stays very low. Really active hands against the run, not so much against the pass. Quick off the line and good range in backside pursuit.
Could use a little more bulk in his lower half to improve bull rush. Really impressive pass rush moves at this point of his football career, especially considering his age and starting experience. Good lateral agility with excellent burst. Very aggressive style of play. Celebratory after the play and shows a lot of positive emotion on the field.
Jernigan projects as a late first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
