  • Janoris Jenkins

    Just curious, I know this guy has quite a few red flags but is definitely a top 15 talent. I'm curious if he's still even on the Giants boards at this point, but if he is, and he slips down to us at 32, what you guys think?

    Personally, when he played at Florida, he held AJ Green and another top NFL reciever now ( can't think of his name ) under 100 yards, both of them combined. I think the guy has the tools to be a great corner, it's just the red flags obviously.

    But anyways, he's definitely the type of player that could very easily drop down to us and to be honest, I think the secondary is one of the weakest , if not the weakest unit we have. Beyond Webster, everyone else is unproven although I think Prince will be solid.

    You're thinking Julio Jones, as the other receiver.

      As much as I would LOVE to have him playing for us on the field, I would be nervous about him in NY off the field. The kid loves the Kush, he's gotta move to a state with it available 'medically'.... Just look at what happened to Jerome Simpson

        Not really the Giants style to pick a kid like that in the first round . . . .

          As much as I would like Jenkins we're not getting him, just like I wanted Jimmy Smith from Colorado but his red flags were too much of a deterrent for us in the 1st.... Hell this is NY, temptations for athletes are EVERYWHERE at any time of day or night, we wouldnt risk it

            Did you listen to Bill Polianthis morningon Sirius? He talked about how teams take these kinds of "red flags" into account when making draft picks.It was pretty interesting. He said that he basically disregarded the normal types of college stuff that the media would blow out of proportion -- drinking too much beer, traffic/parking tickets, a fight here or there . . . . .

              Well first off, the colts have been a horrible drafting team for some time.

              Second, the stuff the media blows out of proportion is one thing, but the stuff the media knows nothing about is another. Often times where theres smoke theres fire. Stuff that really does matter a ton to teams isnt even known to the media.

              In any case, the giants draft clean players the first couple rounds. Always have. I dont think any of us can recall a single first round pick the giants that have had that wasent clean coming out.

                But we all make mistakes younger in life, its up to the individual to mature... But a strong coaching staff and strong locker room doesnt hurt at all, ESPECIALLY in a city like ours where the 'temptations' are all around us

                    He has a lot of talent, he's Asante Samuel 2.0 but better in run coverage .. that said, reese probably wouldn't take him for reasons others stated

                      Who said that the Colts have drafted well?




                      All I said that was that it was interesting to hear the thoughts of a recent insider (as opposed to someposer . . . ahem) on the issue.




                      I also did not say that I thought that th Giants would draft a guy with these types of "red flags" in the first round.

                        Red flags aside, he's too short for us.

                            Anything over 32" is fine for interior guys.

                            Jay Alford had the same arm length as Austin

                              True, but only generally. Again, its believed by pretty much anyone the giants love their defensive lineman to have huge wingspans. Reese even said it on the podium at the combine that year. He values plus arm length in a defensive lineman the most. Austin's 6'1 with 32 inch arms.

                              Having average arm length as an interior lineman is actually a plus. Like you said already with Alford, they tend to be more explosive/get off the line quicker like Rocky Benard early in his career. Its probably why JPP struggles pass rushing inside a little and same with Canty. So there's definitely nothing wrong with Austin's length.

                              Just proving an example of the Giants making an exception to drafting a player they feel has great talent regardless if he doesn't offer ideal qualities in what they prefer. Taking away the character concerns, Jenkins could absolutely fit that category.
