Janoris Jenkins... Wtf?

Cornerback prospect Janoris Jenkins was kicked off the Florida Gators’ football team last April after three marijuana-related arrests. Jenkins opted against the NFL supplemental draft, and played his senior season for Terry Bowden at North Alabama.

But Jenkins didn’t turn over a new leaf.

NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports that Jenkins has revealed in pre-draft team interviews that he didn’t stop smoking at the Division II school. While the truthfulness is somewhat honorable, league executives weren’t exactly pleased to hear it.

“This is a multiple offender of the drug policy in college, and it’s not like there were no character concerns at North Alabama,” one AFC personnel executive told Breer. “He had multiple opportunities to get away from it. He didn’t at Florida, and he went to North Alabama and he wasn’t clean there. … It was more of the same.”

Wow.

I'm not sure I'd even take him in the 2nd round now. It's sad. A guy this good, with this much pure talent, has this many off the field problems.

He may be in the 4th when we pick. :o

Yea, I read this as well.... I mean, it sounds like he likes the way he lives, and the way he lives is just not acceptable in the NFL.

Wow.

Although I don't care if he smokes or not, just the way he has gone about this entire process is a HUGE red flag. Was really hoping he would fall to us in the 2nd, but after this and the agent thing....just NO.

Him smoking weed is not the issue, to me its that he didn't stop even after getting kicked out Florida for it. Him being honest could be viewed as positive or negative.

Wanted him in the 2nd but not sure if JR would want someone like that on the team.

Well, him smoking is sort of a problem. If he keeps doing it, you're going to draft a player that is going to constantly be suspended.

What worries me the most is the whole "turning a new leaf, humbling experience" speech he gave at the combine about how going to North Alabama made him a humble person, and really changed his life... And then reports like this come out.

There are so many guys in the league that smoke weed, but they're able to because most of them haven't been caught doing it yet. If he didn't have a history that included him being kicked off of one of the best teams in college football because of this problem and almost losing his chance at making it to the NFL, then no one would care what he did.

IIRC, Calvin Johnson either admitted to smoking weed or tested positive for doing so at the combine when he came out, yet, by all accounts he's an upstanding guy.

The fact that he's had serious consequences for it before and didn't stop and apparently has no shame in admitting it means he isn't likely ever to stop. Sounds like another dumbass Rashard Anderson to me.

Weed is a wonderful drug. I suppose.

Just for fun, who do you think blazes on the Panthers roster?

Lots of people that smoke weed are great guys. The NFL suspends lots of nice guys for smoking weed. I loved Ricky Williams but he loved the dope.

I could care less about him smoking weed, but knowing what it could potentially cost him, continuing to do so indicates that he is either extremely careless or extremely stupid - or both.
