    Per ESPN:

    Source: Florida CB Janoris Jenkins to enter NFL draft - ESPN

    Jenkins is our #3 junior CB prospect. He is a projected 2nd round talent at this point. He is a bit thin at 5-11, 185 and does not possess great timed speed (4.52e) which may make some teams stay away from him. He is also coming off of shoulder surgery in December. Here is an analysis per Rob Rang of NFLDS:

    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2]"Read & React: Rare anticipatory skills. Sneaks a peek into the backfield and anticipates routes very well. Possesses as good a break on the ball as any cornerback in the country. Will get himself in trouble, as he's highly aggressive and susceptible to double-moves, but possesses the quick feet, loose hips and good speed to recover if the quarterback doesn't attack immediately. Quick to react to the run.

    Man Coverage: Low, quick backpedal. Loose hips and smooth acceleration. Easily changes directions to mirror receivers. Doesn't have great size, but flashes good physicality in press coverage. Gets a good initial jam on the receiver and has the agility to turn and run downfield.

    Zone Coverage: Good awareness for zone coverage. Has a good feel for the receivers and their routes due to film preparation and keeps his eyes trained on the quarterback. Can drift when he sees the quarterback focusing on an area and is therefore susceptible to savvy passers. Quick to react to the thrown pass and converge on the ball.

    Closing/Recovery: Very good downhill closing speed due to his willingness to gamble by reading the quarterback's eyes as well as exceptionally quick feet. Times his leap well and has good ball skills. Can extend and pluck outside of his frame. Good vision and elusiveness for the return.

    Run Support: An underrated component to his game. Reads run quickly and isn't afraid to go inside the box. Fights through the receiver block and is willing to take on bigger ballcarriers. Good lateral agility to break down in space.

    Tackling: A bit inconsistent in this area, though he's more physical and typically a more reliable open-field tackler than most at his position. Will lead with his shoulder trying to make the highlight reel hit and leave himself vulnerable to missed tackles. Will sell out for the PBU/interception and, if he misses, leave the receiver running away from him. Takes good angles in pursuit and breaks down to make the secure stop against elusive athletes in the open field.

    Intangibles: Started 37 of 40 games over his career, missing only one game due to injury. Arrested in May 2009 for his role in a fight and charged with resisting arrest without violence."

    CORRECTION:

    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2][FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2][FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2][FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2]The Twitter world was abuzz from a tweet earlier this afternoon from an account registered to Florida junior cornerback Janoris Jenkins. "Gator Nation, I'm back..." read an entry from "jenkz1," posted around 5 PM this afternoon. A source with intimate knowledge of the situation, confirms to Swamp247 that Jenkins plans to return for his senior season. "He is coming back," the source said. "Will Muschamp did a heck of a job recruiting him [to return to Florida]." According to the source, a multitude of factors impacted Jenkins' decision to come back. Not the least of those reasons was a torn labrum, suffered in the season-opener against Miami of Ohio on Sept. 4th. "That really opened things up," the source said of the shoulder injury that Jenkins suffered. "He can't even lift his arm right now" Jenkins had surgery to correct the injury, which kept him out of Florida's 37-24 win over Penn State in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1st. Other factors playing into Jenkins' apparent decision to return? A grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board which apparently was not as high as originally expected. "The 2nd/3rd round grade concerned him," the source told Swamp247 of the feedback Jenkins had received from the NFL. - Justin Wells, Florida.247sports.com[/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT]
