No. 5: Ronney Jenkins

A lot of people penalize Jenkins for only playing two seasons (1996-1998) in Provo before moving on the the NFL after an expulsion due to Honor Code violations

I don’t.

Jenkins was one of the most electric playmakers in BYU football history – and his explosiveness is what sustained his NFL career.

Jenkins ran for 733 yards and 11 touchdowns as a freshman and took home the Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year Award. He was also selected as the team’s Rookie of the Year by the coaching staff.

Jenkins redshirted in 1997 (due to a Honor Code violation), then returned in 1998 to run for 1,307 yards and 13 touchdowns. He added 349 receiving yards and led the WAC in yards from and touchdowns from scrimmage.
