Timmy Jernigan is expected to replace Haloti Ngata at defensive end.
It's big shoes to fill. Ngata was a two-time first-team All-Pro and annual key to the Ravens' defense for nine seasons. Jernigan certainly appears capable, as he played just 26 snaps per game as a rookie but produced five sacks, eight QB hits and 12 QB hurries (including playoffs) while holding up well against the run.

Ravens DT Timmy Jernigan exited Week 17 against the Browns with a left ankle injury.

Jernigan's ankle folded underneath him when he tried to shed a block early in the second half. He was carted to the locker room and appears unlikely to return. With Haloti Ngata suspended and Chris Canty inactive, the Ravens are now very thin along their defensive line.

Ravens rookie DT Timmy Jernigan has a "meniscus issue" that could force him to miss one or two games.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens hope Jernigan will avoid surgery and be able to play through the injury after a week or two of rest. Jernigan has played 31 defensive snaps across Baltimore's first two games, filling in admirably against the run. DeAngelo Tyson and Christo Bilukidi will have to step up.

Ravens and 49ers coaches heaped praise on second-round DT Timmy Jernigan following the teams' joint practices.

"Quick, explosive, everything we saw on film, a good draft pick," Ravens DC Dean Pees said. With second-year DE Kapron Lewis-Moore done for the season, Jernigan is going to play an integral role in year one. Jernigan has plus strength and plays with power. He'll be a run-stopping lane-clogger for the Ravens. Jernigan also flashed some ability to get after the passer in college.

Ravens second-round DT Timmy Jernigan is "off to a fast start" at OTAs.

Jernigan is being sprinkled in with the first-team defense, battling Kapron Lewis-Moore and Brandon Williams for snaps. Even if Jernigan doesn't win a starting job, he should make an early run-stopping impact in a rotational role.

Ravens signed second-round DT Timmy Jernigan to a four-year contract.

A second-team All-American as junior, Jernigan projects as a one-technique nose tackle in Ravens DC Dean Pees' 3-4 scheme. Jernigan will likely be used in a rotation with 2013 third-round pick Brandon Williams to open the season.

Ravens selected Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan with the No. 48 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Jernigan (6-foot-2, 299) earned second-team All-American honors as a 21-year-old true junior in 2013, racking up 11 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for the national champs. Frequently double teamed in college, Jernigan projects as a country-strong one-gap nose or "one technique" with lane-clogging ability despite somewhat limited size. He is not an explosive penetrator, but has room to grow as an interior disruptor and is relentless in run-defense pursuit. Jernigan should quickly push 2013 third-round pick Brandon Williams for snaps at nose tackle in Baltimore. Williams offers far superior size, but Jernigan moves better.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan will be in play for the Bears at No. 14.

As Schefter put it, Jernigan would be a "curveball" pick because he's widely been projected as a Day 2 prospect. But interior disruption is a need for the Bears after they lost Henry Melton in free agency. GM Phil Emery isn't afraid to make outside the box picks, as evidenced by the Kyle Long selection from a year ago.

FOX Sports reports Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan failed a drug test at the Scouting Combine in February.

It was for a "diluted urine sample." One of the draft's top defensive tackle prospects, Jernigan profiles as a bit of an undersized nose tackle in the pros at 6-foot-2 and 292 pounds. Already a fringe first-rounder whose stock seems to have been falling a bit since the Seminoles won the BCS title, Jernigan will likely have to wait to hear his name called until day two.

Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan clocked forty times of 4.93 and 5.09 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Although Jernigan has the body type of a three technique at 6-foot-2, 292, his athletic skill set suggests he may actually fit better as a bit of an undersized nose tackle in a 4-3. That's also where NFL personnel men currently appear to be projecting him. Jernigan is a fringe first-round prospect.

ESPN Chicago's Mike C. Wright could "definitely" envision the Bears using the No. 14 pick in May's draft on Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan.

Mel Kiper and Todd McShay's most recent mock drafts have Chicago selecting Jernigan, and Wright agrees with their logic. Defensive line was a huge weakness for the 2013 Bears, as they were relentlessly gashed by opposing run games and got no interior penetration after losing Henry Melton for the year. Jernigan goes 6-foot-2, 292 and would play "three technique" in Chicago.
