What the scouts are saying:

"Strong for his size and clogs the middle. Has disruptive ability. Bends his knees and plays with leverage. Able to stack, locate and shed. Wraps and rips down ball carriers. Coordinated hands and feet. Is difficult to engage -- has quick, active paws." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Jernigan improved his pass-rushing skills and put steady pressure down the middle of the pocket. His run defense against Auburn was superb in the National Championship game.” (WalterFootball.com)

"Jernigan entered the 2013 season with just two career starts, but was widely regarded as one of the most talented players on the roster. The big question was how Jernigan would fare after pass-rushers Bjoern Werner, Cornelius Carradine and Brandon Jenkins all departed for the NFL. The answer? Quite well." (CBSSports.com)
