The Lions haven’t had a quiet offseason. Instead current and former players have spent a fair amount of time on the police blotter. Like Nick Fairley, who was arrested for marijuana possession in early April and like running back Mikel Leshoure, who underwent his second offseason arrest for marijuana possession a few days before Fairley.

All of that makes it a rather slim possibility that the team takes Janoris Jenkins — the North Alabama cornerback who is familiar with being arrested on marijuana charges — in the first round of this month’s draft. Even former Detroit players like Charles Rogers aren’t immune from seeing the inside of a jail cell (along with the drug charges, though, Rogers allegedly also threatened bodily harm to his mother).
