Cornerback Could Be The Choice With First-Round Pick

In a perfect world, one of the top two or three cornerbacks on the Lions’ board will be available when the 23rd pick rolls around. The Lions would be thrilled to land South Carolina’s Stephon Gilmore or Alabama’s Dre Kirkpatrick.

However, the presence of talented but troubled cornerback Janoris Jenkins will give him pause. The North Alabama corner has plummeted off most first round draft boards because of his myriad off-field issues. Based solely on talent, though, he’s the second-best cover corner in the draft.

We don’t know how Mayhew’s interviews with Jenkins went. We don’t know what cornerback coach Tim Walton and defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham might see when they try to peer into this kid’s soul. We do know they both have great conviction in their ability to judge character and coach talent, and we know they love reclamation projects.
