Los Angeles Chargers safety Rayshawn Jenkins discussed how he felt about his rookie season thus far with the team’s official site Saturday, and made it clear that the playbook has been the most difficult part about the transition to the NFL.

After discussing what he likes about Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley’s scheme, Jenkins went on to ease any apprehension about his aptitude in proclaiming that he was “intelligent,” and “shouldn’t have a problem with it,” per the team’s site.

The former Hurricane seems to be doing all the right things on and off of the field early on with Los Angeles, however, he does face stiff competition for playing time in a new look Bolts secondary.

As such, Jenkins’ ability to digest and implement Bradley’s plays will be put to the test early and often at Chargers Park this offseason.

Jenkins said that he believes that he is “going to bring those skills to this team and help [the Chargers] compete for a Super Bowl.”

High expectations without questions, but the rookie’s confidence, and work ethic should bring excitement to Bolts fans.

Jenkins went on to clarify on the aforementioned skills he was alluding to, saying he enjoys that he will get to play in the box allowing him “to play hands-on with the big guys.”

Not one to sell himself short, Jenkins went on to say “I can run too, so if he [Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley] needs me in coverage, then I’m there.”

Jenkins will need all of the confidence he can muster as he will be competing for snaps in a talented and deep Los Angeles secondary this season.
