Josh Jenkins (born 8 February 1989) is a professional Australian rules football player who plays for the Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was drafted by Essendon in the 2010 Rookie Draft with pick #12, and was traded to Adelaide the following year.
As a junior Jenkins mainly played basketball and was a development player with the Townsville Crocodiles in the Australian National Basketball League. He had previously played with the Townsville Heat and Mackay Meteors in the QABL, a second tier league within Australia. As a shooting guard, he attended Townsville State High School and led the team to 7th place at the State titles. In 2007 he toured the United States with the Australian junior team.
In 2010 he was invited to attend a training camp for the Australian rules football expansion team, Greater Western Sydney Football Club, after switching away from basketball to play football in Lake Boga, Victoria.
Jenkins made his AFL debut in Round 7, 2012, against Geelong at AAMI Stadium. He played 11 matches in total in 2012 and kicked 11 goals. In 2013 Jenkins switched his guernsey number from number 20 to 4, vacated by Kurt Tippett after his controversial departure from the club, and was dubbed as Tippett's replacement in the key forward position. Provided extra responsibility by Tippett's loss and Taylor Walker's injury, Jenkins kicked 24 goals in 17 games in 2013 before a leg injury ended his season. He finished third in the club's goalkicking that year.
In 2014, Jenkins had his best season to date, kicking 40 goals in 20 games, including five against Hawthorn in round 17. He also spent some time in defence late in the season. In Round 7, 2016, Jenkins kicked a career-high eight goals in the Crows' 15-point loss to the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.
