Bubba Jenkins: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Bubba Jenkins
School: Morningside College
Position: Running Back
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
I had many goals. A few of them were first, make sure I’m playing for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and not for my own glory. Second, make sure to be the best player on the field every game. Lastly to make sure every game my opponents knew my wrath and hate against them.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Tough, tenacious, enthusiastic.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I will train like never before. Become faster than I have ever been. Stronger and quicker than I’ve ever been. Most importantly, I plan to become smarter than I’ve ever been.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I study film I look for what type of defense my opponents run in certain situations ands downs. If the Defensive Ends love to rush up field to cut underneath or they crash. How the players react or play on certain downs. How they play pass or run. Really focusing on their image on the field so I can take it away.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
What separates me from other players, if they don’t have him, is the love and grace, as well as the amount of favor I receive from my Lord. Another is that I can do anything I am asked to do at a high elite level. Wether it’s blocking, catching, running, or tackling the opposing player if my team turns the ball over. Anything.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My strengths and abilities are that I have the whole package. I am fast, quick, elusive. But most importantly, I am a play maker and “team changer”. Ever since high school, I have been able to turn a “not so good” team, into a elite team from leading by example with my play on and off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
WHO EVER DRAFTS ME WILL HAVE A STEAL IN THE DRAFT. My addiction to the process and this football game is something I’m not only fond of my self for, but I believe you will be too. I will never be outworked. I need to feed my family and friends. I will do anything I have to do to be in the NFL and not only be on the team, but also, to be a star player on my team. #RollStangz
