Janoris Jenkins Scouting Report
Janoris Jenkins
Janoris Jenkins - Florida (HT: 5-11 - WT: 184)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 3 of 30

Positives: Has adequate size and good speed (low 4.40-40)... Shut down Alabama's Julio Jones in 2009 and 2010 (Jones combined for six receptions and 47 yards in those two games)... Good production in three years at Florida (eight interceptions, two sacks and two forced fumbles)... Is a very fluid player in most aspects, has quick feet and hips and changes direction fairly easily... Is more physical than size would indicate, does a good job staying on the hip of most receivers, is pretty good at (legally) disrupting routes of receivers in man coverage... Is a solid wrap-up tackler, breaks down well and forms up, even in open field... Is very similar to 2010 first-round corner Kyle Wilson, plays bigger than his size, has an aggressive and competitive streak... Quick with recognizing and diagnosing routes and run plays, has good instincts... Has a lot of upside, has the potential to be a true lockdown corner at the next level.

Negatives: Some character concerns regarding off-field incident in 2009, was involved in a fight and was tasered and arrested for resisting... Will be too aggressive in coverage and run support, goes after the ball when he cannot get to it at times, which causes him to miss tackles (especially when defending flanker screens)... Is adequate in jump ball situations, but will get beat by bigger receivers, leaping ability just average at best... Needs to show the ability to catch up and recover after getting beat on double moves and speed routes.
