Teven Jenkins came into his own during the 2022 NFL season and is primed to become of one of the best offensive guards in the NFL, if he isn’t already.
After moving from offensive tackle to right guard second-year offensive lineman Teven Jenkins became the third highest graded guard in the NFL according to ProFootballFocus.
…while Jenkins, despite nagging injuries, was the third-highest-graded guard in the NFL….Jenkins, however, graded out to an excellent 80.7 in 2022 at right guard for the Bears.
Talk about an underrated performance by the second-year player. Jenkins’ key issue heading into the 2023 season won’t be his play but rather whether or not he can stay healthy as he shifts to left guard.

Teven Jenkins was at practice yesterday whereas newly signed offensive guard Nate Davis was not at practice. Davis’ absence immediately calls Ryan Poles character evaluation of players into question. Poles has emphasized bringing in players who love the game who are happy and excited to be at practice. We’ll see if Davis returns to practice soon.
As of now Jenkins looks like he could be primed for a Pro Bowl caliber season where he sets himself up for a long term contract extension with the Bears. Teven Jenkins is eligible for an extension after the 2023 season.
