Dallas not yet ready to give up on Mike Jenkins

There are a lot of different opinions on Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins; the former first round pick who earned All-American honors at USF and was a Blue-Chip prospect out of Southeast High.

Jenkins was a first round pick in 2008. But the question everyone seems to be asking is which Mike are going to see in 2011; if of course there is a 2011 NFL season.

Jenkins was a Pro-Bowler in 2009. Last season he could've been named captain of the NFL's All-Disappointment team.

To be frank, Jenkins was horrible. He allowed the second most yards by a defensive back in the NFL and tied for allowing the 14th most catches.

People are telling Dallas to draft a cornerback or two and draft guru Mel Kiper says it's time to give up on the speedy 6-1, 190 pound defensive back.

But Dallas coaches are so far sticking with him, believing that Jenkins can have a bounce back season in 2011.

"He’s a talented guy. I think he wants to be good, and we as coaches are going to try to get him back where he plays with the right frame of mind and plays with the discipline necessary to allow his talents to come out," Dallas head coach Jason Garrett said.
