Report Prepared: February 17, 2012

Janoris Jenkins has a ton of talent and would undoubtedly be rated as a first rounder based on his on-field production. There really isn't a whole lot to complain about in terms of on-field skills. He's very competitive, has fluid hips, great in transition, scheme versatile, experienced on special teams, and is a good tackler by corner standards. However, two marijuana arrests in a span of three months, an arrest in 2009 for a fight, and getting into a fight this season against Delta State that got him thrown out of a game all add up to major questions. He has rehabbed his image some as his on-field incident this year was more of his competitiveness coming out and he stayed completely clean off the field. That being said, his on-field production was down this year. Early in the year, teams seemed to just throw away from him but when teams did target him, he seemed to be caught off guard and was playing lackadaisically and gave up receptions. His tackling did improve tremendously this year though. Overall, Jenkins has a great on-field skillset and projects well to any scheme but I think he's best suited to play in either off-man or zone. It will be interesting to see how much his off-field hurts his draft stock but some teams that make sense include Dallas, New England, Detroit, and Carolina.
