Janoris Jenkins #21 DB
Height: 5-10 Weight: 193 Age: 24
Born: 10/29/1988 Pahokee , FL
College: North Alabama
Experience: 2nd season
High School: Pahokee HS [FL]
Selected By: St. Louis Rams
Pick (Overall): 7 (39)
Jenkins was a three-year starter at Florida before transferring to North Alabama after multiple run-ins with the law and the Gators' coaching staff. While there are some character concerns, Jenkins is a natural cover corner who has strong instincts and athletic ability to cover top wideouts. Size is also a concern for Jenkins, but he has shown the ability to match up with big-time SEC talent. He looks comfortable with the ball in his hands as a returner and projects to contribute there as well. If teams can overlook his off-field transgressions, Jenkins has the natural abilities to be a first-round talent and could be selected in the first 20 picks.
