Feel Good Jenkins Story

Here's a story about Jenkins from before his Senior game at USF last year from the St. Petersburg Times.

Mike Jenkins-St. Petersburg Times

A couple of interesting points about our new 6'0", 197 lb CB.  He chose USF because he wanted to be close to his family.  Not because he gets homesick as much as he took care of his mom and brother some while he was in college.  His mom has diabetes and didn't use to manage it very well.  He got clearance from the USF coach when he signed to make sure it would be okay if he had to go home sometimes.

Second, even though he had some incentive to get to the NFL as quick as possible (to help take care of his family), he listened to his coach and his mom and decided to stay an extra year.  He went from being a 5th-6th Round pick to a 1st round pick today. 

Good for the 'Boys.
