The Case For Janoris Jenkins

112 posts in this topic

I don't believe in reaches and most coaches and GMs don't either, including ours. If the player you want is there and he will really help the team out, you take him. I would not be upset with Jenkins at 9.

My bad. Am I misinterpreting this then:

http://www.cheyney.e...rug-Testing.cfm

I knew they tested for marijuana and I read the NCAA randomly tests so I just assumed they tested randomly for marijuana. But according to you, I guess that's not the case. But who's to say the school's administered drug tests aren't random?

But really that point to me is not really a deciding one. He realizes what he did was wrong and is trying assure teams that the can't do it anymore because of his family.

As I said before they do not do random test for MJ.

Student-athletes are subject to NCAA drug testing for marijuana only at NCAA championship events

So that would only be the Champ game. Thats one game a year for two teams. Thats from the NCAA so deal with it.(http://www.ncaa.org/...rijuana+penalty) You are wrong...

That's why I said "my bad." I admitted it, I must have been misinformed.

That fact doesn't change my view of Janoris in the least.

I was just going to post that. Just finished reading. It talks about some of the better influences in his life and like I stated, how UNA was an humbling experience.

"Janoris isn't a risk of being a problem off the field in the NFL," Bowden said. "He's a tough kid and a hard worker. People talk about him having four kids, and I didn't even know that because he never talked about it. Usually, guys that have issues with that are late for practice or always dealing with stuff. I always felt like Janoris was handling his business."

Jenkins also has found comfort in the maturity he's gained over the past year. This past fall, his father, William, sent him a DVD of the movie "Secretariat" in hopes of teaching him another valuable lesson.

"I wanted him to know he was just like that horse," William said. "There are times when you're going to lose but you also can't give up. Janoris has kept fighting."

Bowden added that he doesn't see Jenkins as having a drug problem, saying, "I can see how this happened. His coaches had left. He couldn't practice because of that injury. And Pahokee isn't that far from Gainesville. If he had been getting up at 5 a.m. to lift weights, I guarantee he wouldn't have been doing that stuff."]

good article.

The guy definitely made some mistakes and has/will pay his dues. But that doesn't make him a bad person.

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?
