- Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

News & Notes:
Probably would have been a no-doubt first-rounder if he didn’t get kicked out of Florida. … Has four kids, all under the age of three. … Stood out immediately as a true freshman in the SEC. … Completely dominated Division II competition. … Considered by some scouts to be the most gifted CB in the country. … Can play press, man and zone coverage. … Inconsistent tackler. … Missed only one game in his college career.
What they’re saying about him:
In Jenkins’s case, it’s probably best if we let him speak for himself:
- On his marijuana use: “I’m done with it forever. I can’t do it, man.”
- On talking to teams about his past: “I was honest, straightforward, told ‘em I did it. I admitted to everything, I take full responsibility, and I learned from it.”
