NFL Draft Rumors: Lions 'Could Take' Janoris Jenkins Or Mike Adams

At this point, the Detroit Lions could draft any player in the first round. Despite all that has come out in recent weeks about players they are supposedly staying away from or stuff like that, nothing would really be a huge surprise. In that regard, saying that the Lions could draft somebody isn't really news.

However, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Lions "could" select North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins or Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams, two players who have character concerns. Here's La Canfora's exact report:

The Lions are not afraid to take a perceived "bad boy," or someone with a few run-ins off the field. And there are two prospects who have had off-field issues who would fill a need at No. 23 -- corner Janoris Jenkins and tackle Mike Adams. The Lions could take either one. Alabama corner Dre Kirkpatrick would be the pick if he's there, I believe, but he might be gone. If the Lions were to go with Adams, then I'd be quite surprised if they didn't come back with a corner in the second round.

Peter King tweeted this morning that he is "hearing some noise" about Jenkins landing somewhere at the bottom of the first round. There, he could land with a team like the New England Patriots, or perhaps a team that makes a trade. If many of the players the Lions are targeting with the 23rd overall pick are gone, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing them move down to take Jenkins. To me, that would take away some of the risk associated with selecting Jenkins, and it would net the Lions an extra pick or two in the process.
