2. Janoris Jenkins, 2012
Janoris Jenkins is probably best remembered throughout the league for his stint with the New York Giants. It was Jenkins’ first season with the Giants after leaving St. Louis in which he earned his only Pro Bowl nod.
Jenkins is actually the only player on this list that has a Pro Bowl as part of their resume, although it did not come with the Rams.
Before his time in New York Jenkins was a very solid cornerback for the Rams that would have gotten a lot more attention if he was on a winning team. He played only four years on the Rams but certainly made an impact on the defensive side of the ball.
In those four seasons, Jenkins recorded 10 interceptions, 48 passes defended three forced fumbles and 256 combined tackles. He is one of 32 players since 2000 to have 10 or more interceptions and 45 or more passes defended in the first four years of their career.
Jenkins is now a member of the New Orleans Saints and while his days with the Rams are far behind him, he is probably the most all-around talented player that the Rams have selected in the second round, it is a shame that he has spent more time away from the Rams than with them.
