Jenkins helped power the nation’s most powerful running offense in 2016.
The countdown of Mountain West Wire’s top 50 football players continues today with New Mexico junior Aaron Jenkins.
After securing an honorable mention nod from the Mountain West last fall, Jenkins will look to lead a revamped New Mexico offensive line that led the nation with a 6.61 yards per carry average and explosive plays of every magnitude: UNM ranked first in 10-yard, 20-yard and 40-yard runs. He’s started 28 games for the Lobos and figures to be integral to New Mexico’s conference title hopes.
