The St. Louis Rams pick..
Janoris Jenkins/CB/Northern Alabama
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.
Strengths Jenkins is an explosive player who can stay with receivers and cover in man and zone. His ability to read plays and react allows him to be around the ball, where he uses his athletic ability, quickness, and closing speed to finish plays. Jenkins has impressive hips, and his fluidity stands out and makes him a natural at the position. A flexible athlete, he is quick-twitched and can ignite a powerful plant foot at any time or position to react on a ball or move by a receiver. Despite his size, Jenkins can jam and re-route receivers at the line and play with physicality in run support. He is a classic man-cover corner who uses his superior athletic ability and instincts to stay a step ahead.
Weaknesses Aside from off-field concerns, Jenkins projects as an undersized corner. He could have trouble adapting to the size and physicality of some top NFL receivers, as his ability to tackle and provide support against the run has been a question mark up to this point and will remain so at the next level.
