Janoris Jenkins, St. Louis Rams
If you haven't seen Jenkins play, you need to make a point of watching a Rams game sometime. Seriously, there aren't many players that could make me watch a Rams game (49ers fan, here), but I love watching this kid.
If you're one of the millions who watched NFL Network's coverage of the 2012 NFL draft, then you probably heard Mike Mayock raving about Jenkins' hips.
Mayock, and the other experts who were high on Jenkins, weren't overstating the epicness that is Jenkins' hips. This young man can change directions quicker than anyone, and once he sees what's happening between his receiver and the opposing quarterback, Jenkins pounces like a cat to break up the play.
Through five games, Jenkins has one interception, six passes defended and has held opposing quarterbacks to a 55.6 percent completion rate and 74.8 passer rating, per Pro Football Focus.
There aren't many cornerbacks in the NFL who can hold a candle to Jenkins, and he's only just getting started. If Jenkins can stay healthy and stay out of trouble, he's going to be one of the NFL's elite cornerbacks for the next decade or longer.
