NFL Nation: 2014 season predictions
Thoughts as Cullen Jenkins leaves market

Cullen Jenkins' contract agreement with the New York Giants removes from the free-agent pool a player the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks considered signing.
Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com says the Giants signed Jenkins to improve their run defense. In the video above, however, Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. sees Jenkins as one of the NFL's better interior pass-rushers.
Williamson sees Jenkins as a liability against the run if cast as a 4-3 defensive tackle, but strong against the run if cast as a 3-4 defensive end.
Seattle presumably would have valued Jenkins the most as an interior pass-rusher. San Francisco could use depth across the line, particularly if versatile backup Ricky Jean-Francois leaves in free agency.
