There is no question that John Jenkins will play for the Saints but will he start?
All it took for Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Coach Steve Campbell to secure a little-known defensive tackle from Meriden, Conn., was one highlight reel, a phone call and a signature.
Campbell felt like he found a hidden gem in John Jenkins.
"You knew he was a future NFL guy," Campbell said.
Campbell said Jenkins' high school coach sent film to him at his Perkinston, Miss., office. Campbell said Jenkins was listed at 6 feet 4 and 320 pounds carrying the ball as a fullback, catching the ball as a tight end and bowling players over as a defensive tackle.
