Janoris Jenkins is making everyone at Rams training camp forget about his many pre-draft character concerns by flashing the top-15 talent everyone knew he possessed.
He has been so impressive in training camp that ESPN's Adam Schefter already projects him as a Pro Bowler.
Jenkins began practicing with the first team just three days into training camp and now looks like a lock to start at left corner opposite Cortland Finnegan. Strong safety Quintin Mikell likes what he see, according to ESPN's NFC West blogger Mike Sando.
He is a young guy who is coming in with a lot of confidence. He has come in and made a lot of plays already. I can see it coming. He's going to have a good year. They're going to test him and he might have a little bit of struggles here or there, but he has a lot of confidence and is a guy who can make plays.
St. Louis' draft-day gamble on Jenkins looks like it will pay big dividends.
First-round pick Michael Brockers is another physically imposing defensive lineman like Robert Quinn who has stood out in training camp. In addition to his noticeable size, Brockers is already impressing his teammates with his work ethic and maturity.
Even though wide receiver Brian Quick continues to draw gaudy expectations because of his size, fellow rookie Chris Givens looks like the more polished receiver early on because of his speed. Both possess raw talent that will make them important staples in the team's suddenly deep receiving corps.
