Janoris Jenkins did not learn from mistakes; he's not type of player Lions need

Enough already.

The bad news regarding cornerback Janoris Jenkins just doesn’t stop.

We knew that his three marijuana possession issues are what got him kicked out of the Florida program. We know he’s got four kids (Janoris Jenkins Jr, Legend, Janorian and Paris) with three mothers and yet he’s just 23.

So obviously he hasn’t made the smartest decisions.

Now has a story that Jenkins was honest at the pre-draft team interviews, saying that he continued smoking marijuana even after he transferred to North Alabama.

He’s considered to be the second or third best corner in the draft. Morris Claiborne is likely a top five pick. Dre Kirkpatrick, who also has a marijuana possession charge on his resume is right there with Jenkins.

Yes, the Lions need a cornerback. But even if Jenkins is available when the Lions pick at No. 23 I just can’t believe they would take him. They drafted three guys last year who are dealing with marijuana charges this off-season.

The Lions are too smart to just look at the film of Jenkins and not to take into consideration his off-field decision making.

So please, no more talk of Janoris Jenkins to the Lions.
