    #16-ORTEGE JENKINS University of Arizona Wildcats 6:01.4-227

    Positives... Kordell Stewart-"Slash" type who also has experience as a wide receiver...Very quick setting up to his throwing point...Has good body control and balance when moving out of the pocket...Shows quickness and power in his release...Take-charge leader with accuracy on his short and intermediate tosses...Has the arm strength to also go deep with his tosses...Has the confidence in his running ability to sprint and roll out to throw on the run...His experience as a flanker, speed and long arms could see him shift to receiver at the pro level.

    Negatives... Confidence level is completely shot after a terrible senior year, compounded by poor performances in post-season all star games and especially the Combines...Has little accuracy on his deep throws, where his receivers are constantly working to get to the ball, yet he will continue to try and challenge the defense via this route...Seems to have "happy feet" as he will run at the slightest hint of pressure applied to the pocket...While he has good field smarts, he seems to insist on improvising too much, rather than follow the game plan...Must improve the trajectory of his long tosses or stick to an intermediate passing attack to prevent the high amount of turnovers he has experienced in the last two years (had at least one turnover in every game in 2000)...Has only marginal field vision, tending to lock on to his primary target without checking on the status of his other weapons...Tries to do too much rather than relying on his teammates, resulting in quite a few bad outings over the last two years.

    Shared the quarterback duties with Keith Smith for his first three years with the Wildcats before being handed full-time duties as a senior...Has also performed as a receiver...One of the better runners at his position in college football...Finished his career by completing 387 of 769 passes (49.9%) for 5409 yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions...His 5409 yards rank fifth on the school's career-record list while his 42 touchdowns rank fourth (tied with Keith Smith, 1996-99)...Added 461 yards and 13 scores on 326 carries (1.4 avg)...Gained 5870 yards in total offense, the fifth-best career total in Wildcats' annals.
