The Rams could have one of the league’s elite cornerback tandems for years. Or they could have an absolute headcase who enjoys a good hot box session more than intercepting footballs. It all depends on Janoris Jenkins and his ability to keep his head aligned in the proper direction, and not bent over a drug smoking apparatus.
St. Louis took the risk on Jenkins early in the second round with their 39th overall pick, and if new head coach Jeff Fisher can succeed with this troubled character where he dramatically failed with Pacman Jones, the results could be spectacular. On sheer talent Jenkins was often described as the best cornerback in this draft who’s not named Morris Claiborne, and he’ll be paired with Cortland Finnegan, who was signed during free agency.
But about those Jones comparisons: it seems Jenkins doesn’t like them too much. Fair enough, Janoris, that’s quite understandable, because no one enjoys getting compared to a complete lunatic.
If you toss that inevitable comparison Jenkins’ way, he has a swift rebuttal…
Well played, sir. Well played.
