Who would you all recommend for this? I love the likes of Nautilus and Maokai. Who do you think are the best AD Junglers that are a tank/initiator and can soak a bunch of damage while buying time for your team to kill the enemy?

It seems like most AD junglers either aren't as tanky, don't have as good of an initiation, or don't have the same amount of CC as champs like Nautilus and Maokai.

Shyvana is extremely tanky, can initiate with her R and does a crapton of damage at the same time. Jarvan IV is a good initiator and can be pretty tanky but does far less damage than shyv.

Other than Alistair, nobody is as disruptive in teamfights as Maokai and Nautilus. That's the whole point of their kits. You can play junglers like them, or you can play more AD focused champs. You can't really do both, because that would be ridiculously OP.

I think Volibear would be perfect in this situation. He has pretty good CC with his slow and throwback, he can survive longer than most tanks in an extended teamfight due to his passive, and he can deal a ton of damage with his W.

All of Malphite's abilities do magic damage.

He isn't an AD jungler.

You can sort of mess people up with Pillar of filth, and contaminate+Agony (on the tank) can make you even tankier than you've already built
