I didn’t think that night two of the NFL Draft would get me as excited as the first-round when the Chicago Bears moved up for Ohio State’s Justin Fields, but trading up for Teven Jenkins made it pretty close.
Jenkins plays the game to the whistle and he does it as physical and as nasty as possible. He’s kind of an ass-hole between the lines, and in case you didn’t know, that’s a compliment for an offensive lineman
Twitter was fired up after the Fields selection, and they’re equally as fired up with Jenkins now donning the Navy and Orange.
Here are some of the better Tweets I came across, and see you can notice a theme...

Be still my beating heart.
The Bears now have two of my 17 first round graded players. Justin Fields and Teven Jenkins? Whew.— Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) April 30, 2021
From his pro day, here’s Bears OT Teven Jenkins describing his play: "Tough, physical, nasty motherfucker, a dude who does not shy away from hits, a dude who actually wants to get physical and a dude who wants to bust his ass. I don’t know if I’m allowed to cuss on here. Sorry.”— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) April 30, 2021

#Chicago #TevenJenkins An old school mauler who cherishes the opportunity to run block. He already has man strength and it was evident he was playing against boys at times in college. He checks the boxes when it comes to size, playing strength, and attitude.— Dan Shonka (@Ourlads_Shonka) April 30, 2021

My dream scenario would have been to get Justin Fields and Teven Jenkins, I just never thought it would be possible to get both players. Love how this has played out so far! #Bears— TW (@Tylow237) May 1, 2021
