        Summary & Thoughts:

It’s my opinion that Janoris Jenkins would best fit in a Man Based Defensive Scheme; I don’t see him being drafted though. The projected round is based off of multiple sites that have put it up. I think his character is the ultimate turn off. NFL Teams are looking for people with  good character to be a part of their organization and Jenkins is absolutely not worth a pick prior to the 7th round, based on his character alone. He’s a physically gifted human being, but if I were the GM of a team I would ignore him, unless I trust my team enough to put him in his place. He has several kids with several women, he’s been arrested multiple times for drugs, and he transferred from Florida to Northern Alabama so he could get himself off of drugs. At one time he seemed like a surefire Top 20 Pick, but as I said, character is one of the more important factors in deciding who to draft and his character is unquestionably terrible.
