Draft Focus: Bucs may have a shot at Drafting USF CB Mike Jenkins

CB Mike Jenkins (South Florida) 6'0, 200lbs - A cover corner who can play physical. Long limbed, but not skinny. Well built. Good speed and awareness. Is best in man coverage. Can turn and run with top receivers. Has loose hips and is fluid in movements. Is an able tackler. Is not afraid of contact. Drops into a zone well. Climbing the draft boards quickly. - New Era Scouting

Should the Bucs luck into draftng CB Mike Jenkins, it wouldnt be the first time he's played in Raymond James Stadium and we all know that as RJ is where the USF Bulls play their home games.. He can return kicks as well as Cover Receivers, but he only returned 7 kicks last season so its not something he's accustomed to doing, although he did return one for a touchdown. With the Bucs he'd probably get a look at Kick Returning like Phillip Buchanon did (in practice), but would then focus solely on his CB position.

The New England Patriots have the 7th pick in the Draft and Head Coach Bill Belichick came down south to meet with Jenkins last wednesday. I wouldnt expect Mike to make it past the first 10 picks, but who knows, maybe he'll slip. For his sake I hope he doesnt, but as a Buc Fan, I wouldnt be too disappointed if he did..

The video's up above don't do enough justice for Jenkins and the type of player he is.. that's what i could find though..
