Janoris Jenkins, Los Angeles Rams, 27 years old
Janoris Jenkins was one of the highest praised college corners during his time in Gainesville, Florida. Then in 2011, he was removed from the Florida football team due to being charged with marijuana possession.
The star athlete then moved on to North Alabama to play his senior season. His talent wasn’t questioned, but his character was and the Rams were able to get the starting corner with their second round pick.
Jenkins has since proven to be a solid pro, recording 257 tackles, 48 pass deflections, 10 interceptions and five touchdown returns (which included three during his rookie season).
Now set to hit the open market, the young corner would prove to be a significant upgrade for the Texans, but it may also mean relegating their first round pick to permanent nickel status. The price may be too high, but the team may consider it if it helped them take that next step.
