Alright this "It's a sweet idea using a 1st Round Selection on Janoris Jenkins" Overall insanity, has gotta end...
It's not so much his 3 arrests, however many children b-s. Honestly, WhoTH cares if he smokes p0t and has a few kids? I don't... Sheez, I'm the guy who's favorite player in the league is James Harrison, and on NE is Brandon Spikes (or DMC, who's an unfitting to my greater point right here & now). Seriously, I WANT more psychopaths on my team. In my opinion, Belichick should actually try to TARGET psychopaths...
There's a difference though. Spikes, Harrison, minus only pretentious old white conservative male's issue with Spikes filming himself sleeping with a chick while he was a 19 year old in college- With Spikes & Harrison, you DO NOT hear about their off-field issues, beit at home, or in the lockerrom, or on the sideline bench, Affecting their passion, their drive, their team chemistry, as it relates to the actual football related aspects of themselves. These guys get bad raps for trying to kill people...But ALL their desires and passions are weighted towards being the best, the hardest, the toughest, and the most passion-filled (and inspired) players on that gameday field of play. There are ZERO noteworthy conflictions in their personal life vs. their ability to play and shed blood (their's or someone else's) for their football squad.
And yet, we're not even getting anywhere with the hopes that Jenkins supporters might hope to recognize some greater quality found within a guy's true love (or lack thereof) and passion to play the game of football at the highest level possible, As it relates to one's continued and unfaltering professionalism and dedication towards this, the most critical of desires, Upon a football player stepping off the field at any given time. And good grief (with jenkins), it wasn't simply his arrests that gave Myer fits at U of F, it was his locker room persona that keeps getting noted as the final straw which led to him being dumped... At what's the issue now with jenkins, The guy hasn't even been drafted and now there's news about his agent not liking him to the point where Jenkins had to end things with that agent and find another one?!? Man...
And, lmao...Nope, even that doesn't even remotely do it for me. <Also, here I'd like to add the sorta relevant question of: WhyInTH would we be packaging draft picks in order to move up so NE can target the position of...1st Round CORNERBACK this year? />
But no... Nope. Jenkins is- well, he's not-hmmm, "Good." No... He might get back to BEING good (a definate probability in light of all his off-field issues). Jenkins was pretty good verses 2 future 1st Round NFL Wide Receivers, Julio Jones & AJ Green. But that was in 2010...(2008-2010 Florida Gators- NOT a too shabby collection of players on that Offensive and Defensive Team overall) And yet, HERE is 1st Round Pick Janoris Jenkins' 3 year stats while at Florida (39(!) Games btw...starting 36 of them and playing heavily in the other 3 that he didn't actually start in=39 GAMES):
3 Years and 39 Games (including Bowl Games and SEC Championship Games):
121 Total Tackles (Combined Solos and Assists)
25 Passes defensed
In 2011-12, Jenkins "schooled" oppossing wideouts in DIVISION II...with a stat line at N. Alabama of: 53 TTs (decent...division II), AND for his pass d against Dividion II wideouts? 4 PDs and 2 INTs.
If ya need quick math help, As it relates to every game that's just about I believe now: 3/4's of 1 PD for each 1 Game, 1 in every 5 Games He'll get an INT, and finally now- How many TT's on average per game...? A: Just about 3...3 as the grand total after you Combine Solo Tackles and Assists together.
Alright...here's some videos of how he performed verses The other noteable draftworthy Seniors (this year...2012...couple months ago).
#1. Day 1 Practice 1 for the South Squad at Senior Bowl Practice Week:
<play #1-Jenkins stays at home, and gets knocked back with his rock feet-Late throw (too slow, and terrible read and react balance in off-man)- Count on that being a certified pass reception in the pros/play #2-Jenkins gets right up on the line, and actually plays extremely physical press-man coverage...before falling right down to the ground upon the wideout shrugging him off & returning just half the physicality Jenkins was using on the same wideout himself (this quality of passing defensive plays result in 20 yard gains and touchdowns in the pros) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ6gMmOPEok
#2. Practice 2- Play 1: Jenkins best play @ 1:10 while defending wideout Jeff Fuller (sort of a problem though- It might become an issue, when Jenkins isn't able to turn his head to make any sort of idk- "minor glance" at the actual ball when it gets to the WR in the NFL <ya know, just turn his head to make a play on the pass right as it's getting to the WR? /> NFL wideouts WILL have the agility to turn that underthrown ball into a catch IF and when the CB that's covering them, isn't even skilled enough to turn his head to the ball in the flight.
Play 2: @ 5:35...LOL! Not only does Jenkins get beat...really, REALLY badly. But, On an underthrown ball...a ball so underthrown that the receiver can't stop in time to actually be able to make the simple catch after burning Jenkins, Jenkins actually feels the added need to turn that bad pass, into a WOULD-BE, NFL Pass Interference call, which would've resulted in a 1st and Goal at the 5 upon the 40 or more yard PI penalty being awarded (they call this a PI in the pros when you're hitting the receiver's arms down, even if just for a fraction of a second prior to the ball getting to them). So he first got burned, then second- turned a bad pass that wouldn't have resulted in a catch, IN-to a would-be 1st and Goal. Here ya go:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ame-J9iqZ8&feature=relmfu
#3. Day 3- How'd Jenkins do here? Luckily, when he got caught flat-footed & slow in his QB pass-direction to WR-read & react ability on this one...it was only a pass play that went for a shade over 50 yards. Hopefully NFL QBs won't be hitting their pro wideouts in full stride, resulting in TDs when he sees the big-time:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U-J5gwllC0&feature=related
#4. The Game itself...1st TD of the game? Given up by Jenkins (purple helmet tumbling out of bounds while his receiver makes the TD catch @ the :40 second mark). Play 2: Jenkins making a successful special team's tackle on the oppossing side's PR man, after the return man making a 40 yard return @ the 1:56 mark:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2J57oxOMjU&feature=related
Finally, final play of the Senior Bowl Game (North's RB Isiah Pead, skirting down Jenkins' sideline, and Jenkins completely whiffing on Pead's juke @ the final 3:50 plus mark <5 seconds to the exact end of the clip />):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBk6TqQdCHA&feature=related~~~
There, that's the CB we should we package picks together in order to trade up for in the 1st Round.
