Timmy Jernigan: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Jernigan, who previously said that he will play in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers, reported no setbacks at the conclusion of Sunday's practice. It's not entirely clear how the second-round rookie will be used, as the Ravens' initial depth chart lists Haloti Ngata as the starter at defensive tackle and Brandon Williams as the starter at nose tackle. Though he often played nose tackle at Florida State, Jernigan (listed at 298 pounds) profiles as either a defensive tackle or 3-4 defensive end in the Ravens' hybrid scheme. With Ngata at tackle and Chris Canty a near lock for the starting job at defensive end, Jernigan is unlikely to start. While the rookie still figures to have a role in the rotation, snaps may be hard to come by. Outside of the starting trio of Ngata, Canty, and the departed Arthur Jones, no Baltimore lineman played more than 240 snaps last season. With Kapron Lewis-Moore, DeAngelo Tyson, and perhaps Terrence Cody (hip) also in the mix for playing time, Jernigan only warrants IDP consideration in dynasty leagues.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Failing the test due to dilution won't necessarily be viewed the same as a positive test, but it can't help the likely second-rounder's draft stock. Jernigan had already fallen behind Pitt's Aaron Donald as the favorite to be the first defensive tackle off the board, and he'll likely go after Ra'Shede Hageman, too.
