Mike Jenkins

Came across some highlight film on Jenkins...the kickoff return and the hit are the two things that stood out to me the most...apparently he was offered scholarships from Nebraska, LSU, Auburn and USF...he chose USF because they were up and coming versus the other established big time colleges...his coach referred to him as a lock-down corner...I don't think we can go wrong taking this guy at 10...just my thoughts...enjoy the video

Re: Mike Jenkins

Is it me, or did they show the same interception about 5-6 times.

Re: Mike Jenkins

I don't need to see the video. I like him over the other corners bc of his physical style of play. He's my choice at #10.

He's greater with instant replay.

Re: Mike Jenkins

... you don't choose USF over LSU or Auburn (Nebraska I can see because they've stunk the past few years) because USF is "up and coming". That's crap. LSU has USF beaten in sports, national exposure, academics, and just about everything other aspect , other than USF being closer to the beach than LSU. That tells me that either he was afraid of t level of competition, or he got more perks to go to USF.

The "highlight" video , is not much of a highlight video at all, showing the same play 3-4 times, and he did not look fast on the KR, more like the other team couldn't tackle my grandmother.

Nope, 10 spot belongs to Rivers or Connor.

Re: Mike Jenkins

Jenkins is a good prospect, but I don't know how long til he is ready to contribute - he is a pretty raw prospect. Also, last season, he profited from one of the best pass rushes in the country with George Selvie giving QBs very little time to throw. All said, I still wouldn't mind him at 10.

Re: Mike Jenkins

Merces...

I disagree with you on Jenkins speed...if that is not fast/quick...then I don't know what is...and btw thanks for breaking down Jenkins reasons for going to USF...Did you see he is from Bradenton, FL...i guess playing near family and friends never crossed his mind...I know this is a friendly forum but you shouldn't just jump to conclusions and throw spears without considering all of a player's potential reasons for selecting one school over another...let's be fair...he could become a Saint for all we know

The point of the video was to simply make light of some of his skills IF RIVERS IS TAKEN PRIOR TO 10...I guess I should have been more detailed but I didn't think someone would mistaken me for selecting jenkins over rivers...never...I believe without a doubt that Rivers is the pick at 10...however if he is gone by 10 I do not see your arguement for connors at 10...a Cornerback will be selected before connors...now if the Saints trade down...connors makes sense but 10 is reaching IMO

look...it's all about spirited conversation...the bottom line is we are all saints fans and want to see them get back to the playoffs and thus the superbowl...I just want the pick to be of good value and one that makes sense from a defensive standpoint

Re: Mike Jenkins

If you think we are going CB with the 10th pick, I think you are fooling yourself. Its not going to be a CB.

Re: Mike Jenkins

Okay...so if Rivers, Ellis, and Dorsey are off the board by #10...who do you think the saints will take that isn't a CB?
