Timmy Jernigan is a retired NFL defensive lineman. Jernigan attended Florida State University from 2011 to 2013, sitting the 2012 season out as a redshirt. Throughout his two playing years, Timmy Jernigan accumulated 138 total tackles, 25 for a loss, and 8.5 sacks. Despite being a standout player at Florida State, Jernigan did not pan out well in the NFL. His strong performance at the 2014 NFL Combine, including a Wonderlic test score of 20, led Baltimore Ravens scouts to show interest in Jernigan, only to flop one year later.
