It appears that troubled former Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has found himself a new home: North Alabama.
After being arrested on three separate occasions during his time as a Florida Gator, he was dismissed from the team by new head coach Will Muschamp. The first arrest, which came in May of 2009, was a result of Jenkins inability to come quietly after cops attempted to question his involvement in a fight. He ended up tasting the sting of a taser in the process. The final two, with the latest occurring back in April, were incidents involving the possession of marijuana.
Since being released from the confines of Gainesville, Jenkins has been on the lookout for a Division 2 team willing to welcome him with open arms. He had initially considered taking the NFL Supplemental Draft route, but opted to stay in school for another year and work on Keep Reading…

If you want a proven winner who’s had his fair share of success at the college level, look no further than Andy Dalton. With a great head on his shoulders and an outstanding arm attached to them as well, he’s a more than capable NFL quarterback who could be one of the most NFL-ready to come out of this year’s draft. He spent his college years throwing out of the shotgun, so he will need some work with his reads, but he has the arm to make all of the NFL throws and has proven that he’s able to step into an offense right away due to his maturity and ability to learn on the fly.

Ponder may be one of the hardest quarterbacks in the 2011 draft class to figure out. He has tons of potential, a great blend of physical tools, and strong production throughout his career. However, there are a handful of question marks that soil his candidacy as one of the elite quarterbacks of the class. His decision making is questionable at times, his lack of arm strength gets him in trouble from time to time, he’s thrown more interceptions than some GMs would like to see, and he’s got durability concerns to top it all off. Overall, he’s a terrific prospect with a lot of upside. Unfortunately, there’s plenty of room for him to develop into Keep Reading…

With a prototypical tight end frame, great intelligence and work ethic, and an outstanding mix of skills, there’s no reason that Stocker can’t become a difference maker in the NFL. Although he never produced eye-popping numbers at Tennessee, an offense that relies heavily on the tight end in the passing game would be finding a real gem by drafting this guy. He has tremendous hands but hinders himself with poor route running. If he can work on his route running and blocking, he has what it takes to be a productive starter in the NFL. I project him to be a late second/early third round pick.
Stocker’s blocking still needs lots Keep Reading…
