Not many junglers can viably jungle before level 20. Level 20 allows access to tier 3 runes (which many including myself would say are the only runes you should ever buy) and you'll be very loaded with mastery points to help out. I'd recommend always practicing jungle routes in a custom game with no other players before trying to jungle in game. You don't wanna be the guy dying to creeps and holding your team back. Try cloth armor and five potion starts, if you can't do it with that, then the champion definitely needs masteries/runes to clear jungle camps. Also try starting blue instead of wolves, just see what you can work with.
Some champions that can jungle pre-20 are Nunu, Shaco, and Warwick. Nunu's Consume skill gives him a large damage ability that will also heal him to sustain in jungle. Shaco's Jack in the Box provides him with some dummy targets for creeps to attack with added damage and Warwick has Hunter's Call to synergize with his healing passive.
