Moses Jenkins turning into special teams standout

GAINESVILLE -- Moses Jenkins sightings have been few and far between since the former Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson star signed with the Gators back in Febuary of 2007. There have been recent signs, however, that Jenkins is improving in practice and winning favor with his coaches.

Jenkins made special teams tackles against Georgia and South Carolina, including hits on opening kickoffs. Florida head coach Urban Meyer, also the team's special teams coordinator, even mentioned Jenkins' effort earlier this week. It's no secret among teammates that the best way to earn playing time on defense is by first proving your worth on the Gators' kickoff- or punt-coverage units. If UF takes care of The Citadel in the first half, expect plenty of playing time for Jenkins on Saturday during the second half.

Here's a great picture of Jenkins, produced by Getty Images, following the Gators' 56-6 win against South Carolina. Question: Why is Jenkins holding a camera?
