Fresh off a fantastic workout at the NFL Combine, a handful of NFL teams are intrigued at Janoris Jenkins playing for their defense in 2012. 

Despite Jenkins’s spectacular skill set, questions of his off-the-field activities have reportedly erased his name from several draft boards for the first round. 

A former BCS National Champion and Freshman All-American at the University of Florida, Jenkins ran into trouble with the law three times in Gainesville, including multiple charges for marijuana.

He still has a strong chance to be selected in the first round, though, due to his polished resume as a Gator and his clean sheet of good behavior during his senior stint North Alabama.
