Oklahoma State is still alive in the Big 12 Championship race, however the Pokes will have to finish the season without one of its best players on offense. Oklahoma State offensive lineman Teven Jenkins officially declared for the NFL Draft in 2021, ending his collegiate playing career.
“I am proud to be a Cowboy. The fans have truly made my time here one I won’t forget. I hope I made y’all proud. Although I cannot wait to see where my future lies, I’ve cherished every moment I’ve had at OSU.”
Jenkins became an honorable-mention All-Big 12 player in both 2018 and 2019, bolstering the Oklahoma State offense over the past three years. In a season where the offensive line has been a revolving door thanks to injuries and medical retirements, Teven was perhaps the most consistent piece to Mike Gundy’s offense in 2020.
Former NFL scout and NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah ranked his top-5 offensive lineman that are draft eligible and had Teven Jenkins as his fifth best. Jenkins has several months to get healthy and then start showcasing his talents in front of NFL scouts and in the NFL combine where he will look to improve his draft stock.
Jenkins will have the opportunity to become the first player from the Cowboys’ offensive line to be drafted since 2010 when Russel Okung went sixth overall to the Seattle Seahawks.
