Report: Jenkins to transfer to North Alabama

It's not exactly a happy ending for Janoris Jenkins' college career -- once you've passed on the opportunity to be a first-round draft choice only to be dismissed from your team for two marjiuana-related arrests in the space of six weeks, there may be no happy ending -- but at least that career will reportedly have a chance to continue.

According to Division II football writer and scout Josh Buchanan, Jenkins will be transferring to D-II North Alabama and is only waiting on NCAA approval to make it official.

Assuming the transfer goes through as reported, Jenkins should still be able to salvage something of his professional career; the presence of head coach Terry Bowden makes the Lions one of the more visible D-II programs, and NFL scouts aren't going to let a proven All-SEC caliber prospect just slip off their radar screens. If Jenkins performs to potential for UNA and avoids any further drug issues, his draft stock should remain high. (As this year's No. 1 overall selection proves, leaving Florida hardly guarantees a big draft plummet.)

But given Jenkins' track record in Gainesville (remember that he had a third arrest earlier in his career), it remains to be seen if he takes advantage of that opportunity. If so, we'll see him on Draft Day 2012.

Report: Jenkins to transfer to North Alabama

So lets see here

" he was in the SEC"    Good point playing in the SEC is a sure way not to get drafted

" h went to Florida"    Good point again no Gators in the league (btw UF is in the SEC so your point 1 and 2 are kind of one in the same)

"he is just stupid, STRIKE 3!! "  What are the odds that his SAT or ACT scores were higher then yours? (my bet they were) Also jealous much of the fact next year he will make more $$$ in one year then you will in your life time?

He won't allow a single catch all year, hes a stud, but couldnt fix his off-field issues in time. He will still make the league

Also, if you're a D2 receiver and Janoris Jenkins is covering you, do you even bother running your route?  Or do you just brace yourself for a long boring day of not getting the ball?

You think? He got caught smoking pot twice. He's probably out of the running for role model of the year, but if Michael Vick and Ben Roethlisburger (who are at positions where they are supposed to be leader of their team) can be praised after their actions, I think Jenkins might still have a shot .  And if Pacman can get 30 chances only to squander all of them,  I think Jenkins will get more than his fair shake to succeed in the NFL no matter what he has done in the past or will do in the future.

It will just cost him several million dollars up front for being a complete idiot.

2012 number one pick overall.

he should have went to Auburn, could have made some good money to support his habit and landed number one overall in the 2012 NFL draft.
