Janoris Jenkins “kept smoking” at North Alabama

2012 NFL Combine Getty Images

Cornerback prospect Janoris Jenkins was kicked off the Florida Gators’ football team last April after three marijuana-related arrests. Jenkins opted against the NFL supplemental draft, and played his senior season for Terry Bowden at North Alabama.

But Jenkins didn’t turn over a new leaf.

NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports that Jenkins has revealed in pre-draft team interviews that he didn’t stop smoking at the Division II school. While the truthfulness is somewhat honorable, league executives weren’t exactly pleased to hear it.

“This is a multiple offender of the drug policy in college, and it’s not like there were no character concerns at North Alabama,” one AFC personnel executive told Breer. “He had multiple opportunities to get away from it. He didn’t at Florida, and he went to North Alabama and he wasn’t clean there. … It was more of the same.”

Several, if not most, NFL evaluators consider Jenkins the second best on-field cornerback prospect in the 2012 draft, behind only LSU’s Morris Claiborne. But Jenkins may not even be drafted in the first round.

“He gets to North Alabama, and he’s still smoking because he’s got this big-fish, little-pond thing going,” one NFC executive said. “I don’t see him going in the first round, and a lot of teams have him off their board completely.”

An AFC college scout told Breer that he doesn’t believe Jenkins is a bad guy. But he still would want no part of Jenkins in the first round of the draft.

“He’s not a bad person,” said the scout. “He just makes a lot of dumb, dumb mistakes. He just smokes and [has sex], and that’s essentially what it is. … And there’s just awful decision-making associated with that. I don’t think he’s a bad person. But he has a lot of soul-searching to do.

“I wouldn’t touch him in the first round.”

    No… No… I’m pretty sure he turned over PLENTY of new leaves.

    He’ll be out of the League in 3 years, yet some idiot GM will draft him.

    I bet you 90% of the critics who want to bash him for his “bad decisions” did the exact same thing in college. The other 10% couldn’t get laid…

    If he is available at Pick 32 Giants should grab him because that front office and Coughlin would put him in line. They would have great depth at corner with Webster, Thomas, Amukamara, Molden etc.

  18. dannymac17 says: Apr 12, 2012 7:40 PM

    But yet most of these execs would gladly draft people who shoot themselves, others, and even family members at the club with guns and tossing champagne bottles at peoples heads.

    Yea, not the guy sitting on his couch watching a movie and smoking a bong.

    who ever grabs him will get a draft steal , as long as he smokes home there really is no concern .

    He is going to have to start smoking some seriously skanky bud…becasue he is losing a ton of cash with this freefall in the draft.

    I don’t think its just that he lit up the gunja, its that he didn’t stop even after having to switch to division II. That’s more telling than anything. These guys are heavily scrutinized for a reason. They have now become investment opportunities. you don’t go “fixer upper” in the 1st round. What are these kids doing? You seriously can’t give up the MJ for a little while to become filthy rich?

    A strong locker room and front office couldn’t turn him around.

  35. TSizzleBallSoHard says: Apr 12, 2012 8:00 PM

    This is a stupid reason not to draft someone. It should be legal and the fact that it isn’t is what’s truly criminal. I would love to see the Ravens take him but we’re pretty set at CB.

  36. maven2222 says: Apr 12, 2012 8:01 PM

  56. rob0527 says: Apr 12, 2012 8:25 PM

    It’s just weed. It should be legal anyway. If taken by team with solid leaders they will set him straight. Hope he falls to jets in second round. Maybe will cost him being first rounder, but if he is that good he is worth the risk. A lot of guarantees have flopped, so why not take the risk.

    As I pointed out before Jimmy Smith fell pretty far for a guy who was the top cover corner in his class. Smith was also helped by being a massive corner at 6’2 and 210lbs, whats this Jenkins kid 5’9 ish and 185? He also doesn’t have half of Smith’s resume, Smith only allowed something like 22 receptions against him his LAST TWO YEARS doubt Jenkins was that much of a factor.

    If Smith fell that far without any real set in stone red flags and his rare size for the posistion then Jenkins will plummet. I see third or fourth round written all over him.

  73. kleppnasty says: Apr 12, 2012 8:49 PM

    To those asking what the big deal is, its not that teams/fans really care if he smokes or not. It’s that if you draft him, you know you only get a season or two before he’s suspended many many games. Waste of a draft pick.

  80. jluns275 says: Apr 12, 2012 9:01 PM

    Doing the doobage doesn’t make him a bad guy. It just makes him unfit for the NFL: their league-their rules. However, it is a rather stoned out hippy idea that Jenkins obviously feels entitled to get paid millions to play a kids’ game. Getting high & blazin’ his life away is clearly more important to him than pro football. Again, that doesn’t make him a bad guy it just makes him unfit for the NFL.
    And no, I’m not a fan of the mary jane. I do however advocate for it’s being legalized. We could tax the heck out of it & balance nearly any halfway reasonable budget. If it would become legal I believe there should still be a few restrictions including no driving while high, as well as no being high during certain occupations: health care, law enforcement, and anything else where you’re responsible for someone else’s safety or health, or being an obvious role model for kids (like pro sports players).

  91. theandy59 says: Apr 12, 2012 9:30 PM

    It’s not the fact that he smokes pot that’s disturbing, it’s his inability to make good decisions that make him a risky pick. Imagine the trouble he can find with a couple million dollars in the bank.

    So let me get this straight in a league where you get the same suspension as coach who ask his players to hit the other team hard when you drink and drive and KILL someone, smoking pot is the end of the world ???

    Please. America needs to grow up. Perhaps, like Ricky Williams Mr. Jenkins doesn’t want to put horrible addictive pain killers in his body and is smart enough to know that Pot has the same pain killing affects, in fact some would say it does a better job, with less impairment and less chance of side effects.

    The truth is NFL players should be smoking pot during the week after games. It would do them wonders as far as healing and regeneration. It would also help to stem the tide of addiction in pro football, opps didn’t mean to say that out loud. The NFL doesn’t want to ever talk about how many players use and abuse opiates way beyond their playing years. But god for bid the kid from Florida smokes pot.

    D.A.R.E. is for 8 year olds who don’t understand they are being lied too. Do your own research morons.

  95. garyman1 says: Apr 12, 2012 9:45 PM

    Janoris, Ricky Williams tried that approach…even going on 60 minutes to talk about.

    Then he found out he doesn’t get paid to sit at home and get stoned.

  96. eddiespostal says: Apr 12, 2012 9:46 PM

    The weed isn’t what’s going to take him down. As soon as he sign’s his first contract, be it a 1st round, 2nd round – he going to want mo money. Cuz those three mothers are going to get 33 percent of what ever he makes off the top, which means he’s gonna need mo money!!!! If he has a good to great rookie season he will hold out for – you guessed it – mo money!!!!!!!!

    @hatesycophants

    What if these unnamed scouts and executives (who are doing their job BTW) get overruled by a controlling owner like Snyder or Jones and are forced to draft Jenkins? Might put their job in considerable danger IMO if the owner gets an idea that his scouting department is not on a page it should be.

    But of course no one would say these things if Jenkins wasn’t such an idiot. I mean this isn’t Notre Dame here, dude got kicked off an SEC school. Again, he got kicked off an SEC school. Those teams while amazing and crank out NFL talent (and a fair share of busts because of character issues) like no other confrence are famous for their lax player standards.

    “He just smokes and [has sex]”

    I’m assuming this is also true of many players already in the league. I respect the dude even more for being upfront bout it. Now he’ll just have to prove he can play football too.

  110. lks311 says: Apr 12, 2012 10:56 PM

    So, I love the line: “I wouldn’t touch him in the 1st Round”. Which implies, I would in the second.

    My question is, why would you waste even a 7th if the kid can’t stay on the field.

    And everyone that says “legalize it”, misses the point—the kid lacks discipline.

    Smoking Pot is not a big deal, I hope the Redskins draft him in the 3rd round if he falls.

  113. footballfanman says: Apr 12, 2012 11:08 PM

    The Redskins definitely don’t need any more heads on the roster, but I hope they grab him in the third.

  116. thraiderskin says: Apr 12, 2012 11:12 PM

    Sooo… I’m not saying I didn’t do it (smoke-up) in college, but what is wrong with the old fashioned “just stop doing it” method? I always hear people say, “legalize it,” but I’m pretty sure more would be accomplished just not doing it anymore, then waiting for it to be legalized (definitely less would be sacrificed). Also, if it doesn’t have such a negative side-effect, why can’t people prioritize “great” success over doing it?

  117. cliffordc05 says: Apr 12, 2012 11:14 PM

    He’s the type of talent you can’t rely upon. I predict his first drug suspension will occur within the first 12 months of his signing. He might make it through the season without getting caught but will get nailed during his first off-season.

  118. carlsbadboltfan says: Apr 12, 2012 11:19 PM

    I see many replies saying “it’s just weed” and “it should be legal anyway”, yadda, yadda, yadda.

    I get that. But even if it is legal, players in the NFL still wouldn’t be able to do it. When they sign a contract one of the stipulations is that they will not smoke weed. You want to play in the NFL, you have to agree to not to do it. Period.

    AFAIK, the CFL doesn’t seem to have such restrictions on their players. He won’t make any money, but he won’t be tested either.

  119. playmaker8822 says: Apr 12, 2012 11:51 PM

    Kid already got kicked off FL for THREE weed arrests. Lol. Silly. I dont care about weed smokers but I care about arrests. Means you just dont care or worse…IDIOT. No thanks on my team. I want guys if they smoke weed…smart/care enough not to get caught

  120. mac3333 says: Apr 12, 2012 11:59 PM

    MUCH WORSE things he could be doing than toking up. Its time this hypocritical society grows the F up about pot. I’d rather he be @ home toking up and laying pipe than out @ the club where trouble can find you in an instant.

    yeah but they weren’t in line for millions of dollars either. Plus I think he has six kids by 8 different moms.

    Or do you mean eight kids by six moms. Maybe you think eight moms each had six kids, giving him 48?

    OMG!!! He smoked Weed! He had sex too?! In college no less. How could he possibly excel at playing football? Who gives a crap. Draft him on his performance.
    ——————————————————–
    He can’t perform if he is suspended, idiot. It has nothing to do with how he plays football. He was arrested several times, and has four kids under the age of three, from three different women. The guy is a head case, and he has zero chance of having a successful career. I wouldn’t sign him as an undrafted player. 3 arrests, 4 kids. You want to give him millions of dollars thinking he deserves an 8th chance?

  130. grannyvi4 says: Apr 13, 2012 1:29 AM

    I could care less how much weed he smokes, but he wants to be an NFL player. Doesn’t the NFL have a rule against banned substances???? He got kicked out of FL because he wouldn’t give up the weed, and he still smoked it at AL. If he wants to be a pothead his whole life (in between fathering kids because I guess his pot-filled head doesn’t know what a condom is), fine. But don’t expect someone to invest a sh*t load of money on you when you choose to continue behavior that some see as risky.

    It’s his decision-making that’s a cause for concern here. He’s basically thumbing his nose at the very people who could make him very rich (well, until all the baby mamas line up for their fair share). He’s going to find out that, in the real world, you don’t get to dictate the rules. As far as I’m concerned, he can smoke his life away while losing millions at the same time. Doesn’t bother me at all.

    Jenkins should not be drafted until the the very last pick for whoever decides they want to waste that pick on a guy who will be suspended for 4 games, then a seson, then 2 season and then for good. This idiot has all the talent to make an impact on about any NFL team. Problem is, he would rather smoke pot thaan get paid millions of dollars to play football.

  138. hrmlss says: Apr 13, 2012 5:42 PM

    I say legalize it and allow them to light up on the bench or sidelines of all games (NFL< NBA<MLB< NHL) After watching a few games of stoned players screwing around, the humor will wear off, and we'll be clamoring for them to ban it.

    To everyone saying, just legalize it already. What’s to say the NFL would say it’s cool and take it off their own banned drugs list.

    There are plenty of LEGAL products that you and I could take on that list that would not have us spend a day in jail or even a ticket, yet suspends players every year.

    Pot would very likely stay on the banned drugs list.

  141. eddiespostal says: Apr 14, 2012 10:26 PM

    I understand most everyone’s post is about the pot smoking and that will have an adverse effect on him – he will be in the “program” as soon as he signs his contract, but he can, if he wants to, decide not to put the the “reefer madness” to his lips. The children are a different matter. As I posted earlier, the mom’s are going to get money – and alot of money. All the players you have read about lately filing for bankruptcy have one thing in common. They all have many children by many mothers who were all getting a share of his contract. Sure smoking pot and having sex is fun but now he’s going to have to pay the piper. In turn he will resent the fact they are getting “his money” but there won’t be a thing he can do about it. The court will garnish his pay and he will be behind almost before he cashes his first check. He just doesn’t understand he’s not going to be as “well off” as he thinks he will be. Thanks for readin’

  142. pantherdan says: Apr 17, 2012 2:10 AM

    OK….HOW MANY “BALLERS” DO NOT SMOKE?

    Uh, that would be like one or two in all of D1 ball….

    Ah, come on…He is a very poor kid who has worked his ass off and will soon be a multi millionaire and will probably cost himself a few of those potential millions for some weed…

    Many NFL players smoke…Ever heard of the whiz-a-nator (?) geez people…He should be a fine pro and he actually seems to grade higher in some areas than Mo Clay…No pun intended.

    Someone in the late first or early second will snap him up…I just am proud as hell he did NOT LIE!

  143. dirtydavid4 says: Apr 17, 2012 10:25 AM

    Janoris is to blame here but Terry Bowden should be fired he took this kid in and knew why he was kicked off the Florida Gators there should have been weekly testing of the pothead. Bowden’s wanted to win more than do the right thing imagine that a coach not doin the right thing.

  144. cwmorga says: Apr 19, 2012 12:24 PM

    For everyone saying “Who cares, it’s just pot!”:

    I don’t think NFL executives care as much about the pot smoking as they do about his intelligence and passion for the game of football. He was kicked out of one of the most prestigious college football programs in the country for smoking weed, and continued to smoke even though he knew it could hurt his stock going into the NFL. That reeks of poor decision-making at best and lack of intelligence at the worst, neither of which is a quality many NFL teams will overlook in the 1st round of the draft.
