NFL Draft countdown: Where will Jenkins go?
The NFL Draft is now less than an hour away, and I for one am very excited about the league shortening the time between picks from 15 minutes to 10 -- a nice streamlining by Roger Goodell that should leave less down time. The first round has been a six-hour snorefest in recent years, and this should get it pleasantly under four hours.
So where will Mike Jenkins go? It's all but assured he'll be the first first-round draft pick in USF history, but the difference between 7th to the Patriots and 28th to the Cowboys could be three hours. I posted here yesterday that I thought he'd go 16th to the Cardinals, but I'm just as curious to see where he goes among the cornerbacks. If he's 7th, he's the first corner off the board, but he could easily be third or fourth and still go in the top 20. Is there a chance he falls to the Bucs at 20th?
Anyway, we've got a few hours to kill, so I figured I'd give you guys another place to talk about the draft. I'll be curious to see if George Selvie's name comes up as a potential name for 2009 when Mel Kiper offers his first look at next year's top draft prospects. Oh, and I might have an update later this afternoon on a center who could be headed to USF ...
