      I believe that someone here suggested that he admitted he still smoked pot during his time at UNA while being interviewed at the Combine.

          Because by the time you get to the third round, you're already dealing with guy who are about as likely to be out of the league in a couple of years as they are to start. So when you have a potentially elite player still on the board, you take him. You don't have to like him. You're not hiring him to babysit your kids, you're hiring him to defend passes and knock the **** out of people. We really don't need to turn the draft into some kind of morality play every year. Every year, there are highly talented guys with character concerns, and every year those guys get drafted high. Sure, they might've been drafted higher if they weren't known to smoke weed, but they don't fall out of the draft. At most, and of course depending on their offenses, it more or less knocks them down a tier. Top-ten talents last into the 20s. First rounders go in the second or third. Elite prospects simply don't fall through the cracks, because there are always teams willing to give them a shot at getting their **** together on account of their talent, and it doesn't take very long for the talent of these "red flag" guys to be so far beyond the talent of the prospects on the teams' draft boards that they say, "**** it, we're taking him." Everyone in the room knows there's that chance of the player flaming out, but lets be honest: there are plenty of great guys who flame out of the league without being bad people, and ultimately, NFL decision-makers are in the business of winning football games. Even a coach who thinks Janoris is a shithead at some point sees his potential outweighing his risk and takes him. People like us, who don't think it's fair that a 22 year-old kid with no impulse control has an opportunity to make millions of dollars off of a talent he was born with, want to see him fail. People think, "I don't want to give this kid a chance because he's been taking advantage of chances for years." And you'd be justified in thinking that. Thing is, that's just not how the NFL works.

            I see no way Jenkins get picked in round 1, his character issues are just too out of control and teams drafting late won't touch him with a ten foot pole. Yes, he is an amazing talent, maybe even better than Claiborne's, but he is Pac Man Jones' clone and what good is a player who will be suspended all the time.
            And proud of it!!!
