Kiper – Janoris Jenkins a top 10 to 15 talent Dan Leberfeld

North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins is a special talent, but marijuana issues could push him out of the first round.

“Janoris Jenkins is a very intriguing prospect,” said ESPN’s Mel Kiper. “Talent, top 10 to 15. If he had no red flags, he would be, I think, in the top 15, at worst the top 20, probably top 17 because Cincinnati is picking 17 and needs a corner. He could still be in the mix; the Lions need a corner desperately at 23. Or he could get into the second round very easily. I have him looking right now going to Carolina, picked 40. Could he be a first? Yeah, but if that does push him down, it’ll be for that reason (pot).”
