"Draft picks are like stocks," Snead said late Friday night. "But our draft, as a whole, is sort of like a mutual fund."
They sent Jenkins to the plate ... but he won't be there alone. His personal life is a wreck -- four children with three different women and marijuana-related issues -- but the Rams have put safeguards in place. Snead or another Rams official will call him every day, a system of checks-and-balances aimed at keeping Jenkins out of trouble.
Said Snead: "I look the kid in the eye and said, 'It's you and me.' "
The idea a team would even put this policy in place seems like reason enough to avoid Jenkins like the plague, however, the Rams are riddled with holes and decided to gamble for a quick fix in the secondary. Jenkins represents one hell of a roll of the dice.
