NFL Draft Rumors: 'Forget' Idea Of Lions Taking Janoris Jenkins?

Talk continues to suggest that North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins may not last long in the second round. Jason La Canfora is reporting that "numerous" teams are considering making a move up to the beginning of the second round in order to land Jenkins, who is perceived to be a first-round talent.

Janoris Jenkins is being hotly pursued at the top of the second round and numerous teams are looking to trade up to the start of the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft so they can take the North Alabama cornerback, team executives said Thursday night.

As it stands right now, it doesn't look like the Detroit Lions are among the teams giving consideration to making a move up for him. Mike O'Hara reported on the Lions' official website today that fans should "forget" the idea of Jenkins landing in Detroit. He says it's just not happening, so barring some unforeseen change, don't expect Jenkins to be a Lion.

Even if you completely discount the idea of taking Jenkins, there are still plenty of solid cornerback options in the second round. At the very least, it seems possible that the Lions will spend one of their day two picks on a cornerback, just not Jenkins, apparently.
