The Case For Janoris Jenkins

I dont think the best cb duo in the world will do us much good if we dont make a couple of moves to shore up our pass rush and start to consistantly get pressure on opposing qb 's. IMO d line and linebacker are our biggest needs. Besides I think Gable and Hogan will both do well this year - if they get help from up front.

But what it does do by selecting a shutdown corner, it fixes the pass game quicker and makes your defense more complete. We are going to need to strengthen our pass defense and rush defense regardless. But if you have a duo of CBs that can actually defend the pass that makes the jobs of the safeties that much easier. I am not saying that our whole lack of rush defense was because the safeties were caught helping the CBs but it had to play a factor. There are more pieces that go into creating QB pressure and it'll take more than one player to accomplish that.

So why not draft a CB that helps you shore up the pass defense and then focus on creating a pass rush?

I completely agree with your assessment of his talent. He lacks none. If we were in the teens, I would take the pick, but with the eighth pick, it is risky. I wouldn't be upset if we took him (especially over Poe), but it is a definite risk that cannot simply be overlooked.

This draft is deep at CB. Why take a chance on Jenkins? If he is there when we pick in the 2nd, I think the value would be way to high to not pick him, BUT...that likely won't happen, so this seems like a moot issue.

Look at how quick JR has been to get rid of guys with 'possible' cahracter or substance abuse issues in the past...why would he change now? Just b/c he has Rivera?! I love the point about Rivera not running a daycare & having other things to do! :rolleyes:
