If he was half way to being a role model in college, then he'd be a top ten pick.

When you are considered tbe best talent at the position, and you still can't make the commitment, then you are a fracking idiot. He obviously doesn't have the soul to be one of the best.

smoking weed doesn't make you a bad person, I know this from personal experience.

Not commiting to stop for something more important, defiantly keeps you from being a top 10 pick.

I hate to keep repeating this, but didn't we have this same debate last year?

Cam's issues were considered by the front office, and they determined that they were singular isolated events, and they are likely not to happen again. Whereas, smoking weed is more habitual.. and that is very likely to happen again. I don't see how their character concerns are similar.

Who says he isn't committed? It might take longer for some people to realize that the NFL is a job and you have to be responsible on and off the field. But Janoris has taken the the right steps and reportedly hasn't smoked in over a year. That shows a sign of commitment. He is definitely committed on the field, he just needs to fully commit himself overall as a person and realize the consequences that come with bad decisions. He has experienced that.

Jenkins is a great cover corner. Only on field concern is his size.

Having said that Claiborne, Gilmore & Kirkpatrick will definitely be off the board before him, all possibly in the 1st. After Jenkins there is a drop off in quality but not a massive one.
I think there is a very high chance he's there in the 2nd round. If the draft wasn't deep at CB I think the panthers would draft him but with there much "safer" talent not just at the CB position still on the board, I think they take a long hard look as to whether draft him or not.
If they do draft him, then I think they are not too worried about the character concerns.
IMO if he's the bpa at our positions of need we should take him.

God forbid we do draft Jenkins at least we will be able to fill up the stadium week in and week out with his what seems like 50 illegitimate children.

Luckily none of our thoughts matter. People that know far more about Janoris than us are making the decisions. With that said there's not much going on so lets talk about it.

I'm surprised it took us 4 pages to discuss his children. He has 4 kids from 3 mothers at age 23. I'm sure some of you think that's something to be admired but to me it shows a lack of stability and maturity. One child in college is common for athletes, two happens as well, but having four children out of wedlock, without a job puts him in a rare class. No one mentioned his arrests were for violence, they just happened to find dope on him following fights with police and random people at bars.

Everyone does things they regret. This guy continued to do things after being caught and only decided to shape up when it was convenient for him. The word that best describes Janoris is habitual and that's a word Goodell uses right before handing out a suspension.

I don't buy the argument that Ron Rivera can shape him up. I don't think Ron Ron has time! At the end of the season he talked about how inundated he was dealing with all sorts of things that had nothing to do with football and how he wanted to get back involved with teaching and scheming. We have our headcase in Steve Smith, we don't need a team full of them.

Stephon Gilmore has less baggage..is bigger and is a Carolinas product...like.

I think Jenkins has a shot at being a Revis type guy however..Gilmore more of a Dunta Robinson, Arron Ross performer..

Jenkins could also have a Pac Man Jones type career as well..less guns hopefully.

Its proven that Money does not make you be a better person or does it help stop drug problems.

if you have a drink from time to time, are you an alcoholic? granted, marijuana is illegal, but that's aside from the imagery you convey..

drug problems.. sheesh..

I like Gilmore in the 2nd round too. High character kid, good grades, good football IQ, gifted physically. Really think he'll be a lot like Gamble.

drafting Jenkins in the second would fit our pattern of drafting first rouder potentials with issues and problems as to why they fell. So far we have not been too lucky with these kind of guys. Maybe he could break the pattern. Maybe this will be the one that finally works out.
