Draft Reaction: St. Louis selects CB Janoris Jenkins

The St. Louis Rams have added CB Janoris Jenkins to their team, just a month after making Cortland Finnegan one of the highest paid players on their team.  A year after putting 10 CBs on IR, the Rams can now point to this as a strength.

Jenkins might actually be a better coverage player than an athlete, and offers good instincts on the field.  He can return punts in the pros, and as an option in the return game, he’s difficult to bring down.

Ultimately, Jenkins was not on every teams board, which is why he was available in the second round.  He was also considerably older than other top corners in this draft turning 24 this year.  Jenkins didn’t have a great coverage season for the North Alabama Lions.  There is considerable on-field risk here, to go with the guy who became the first guy to be dismissed from Urban Meyer’s Florida program.  But he can play football, and based on that, he’s a good value in the second round.
