2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

The main headline for Janoris Jenkins heading into the 2012 NFL Draft will always deal with his character flaws. He was kicked off the Florida Gators in 2010 due to being arrested twice in a three-month span on drug-related offenses. The year before, he got in a fight and was arrested then as well.

NFL teams will have quite the decision on their hands because (excluding his aforementioned run-ins with the law) he is a very good football player and has few holes in his game. He is a quick reaction player with elite quickness and above average speed. Jenkins really excels as a cover corner. He shows great body control, fluid motions and decisive movements to make plays on the ball. He is very aggressive when the ball is in the air, to the point that he will sometimes get beat for big plays.

Jenkins does a great job at masking his physical limitations at only 5'10" and 183 pounds. He won't be able to utilize press coverage, but is quick enough to break quickly on the ball and bat it down or take a short drop and run with receivers on short/intermediate routes.

He could slip because of his troubles while at Florida, but Jenkins is a first-round talent.

Prediction: 1st Round

Everybody has him going in the first, but he is a classic caveat emptor. He got beat a few times at the senior bowl and is not worth the risk can you spell PacMan or Chris Cook.
