Default Re: Official 2012 ISH NFL Mock Draft

With the 20th Pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, The Tennessee Titans Select:

Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama - 5'10/193

The Titans addressed their biggest need (pass rusher) in Free agency with the signing of Kamerion Wimbley, so here they draft a CB to replace Cortland Finnegan. They could either go with Jenkins or Stephon Gilmore, but I chose Jenkins because he is the better cover corner. Though he has had off field issues, the Titans take a risk and draft him here due to his immense talent and upside.


Explosive player
Great in man-to-man and zone defense
Extremely quick feet and recovery speed
Impressive read-and-react skills
Excellent lateral range and change-of-direction ability
Competitive and aggressive - not afraid to stick his nose in on running plays
Smooth, low backpedal with loose, quick hips in transition
Experienced with 37 starts in 40 appearances
Played through injury
Reportedly owned up to his mistakes in Scouting Combine interviews
Contributes on special teams and is natural with the ball in his hands


A host of off-the-field troubles (two marijuana arrests, one arrest for fighting, a failed drug test) - was kicked off Florida and transferred to North Alabama
Lacks ideal size (5-foot-9 3/4, 193 pounds)
Small hands (8 1/4 inches)
May struggle against the run as he is an inconsistent tackler
Could have problems jamming large wideouts
