Cornerback Janoris Jenkins said Tuesday that he is scheduled to meet with the Dallas Cowboys at the Senior Bowl this week, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Jenkins spent three seasons with the University of Florida, but was dismissed by the team for misconduct, following a handful of incidents--including fighting in 2009 and marijuana possession in 2011. Following his dismissal, Jenkins went to North Alabama to play under Terry Bowden.
Not all that surprisingly, Jenkins has impressed during Senior Bowl practices. The concern most teams have about Jenkins have nothing to do with football prowess, however, and the young corner understands that going into meetings with Dallas and other NFL teams this week.
"I just go in, that's who I am, tell them what happened and be honest," Jenkins said. "I did it. I made a mistake. I take full responsibility for it."
With pre-draft meeting season just getting kicked off, Jenkins is ready to field the inevitable questions about his off-field issues.
"I'm sure I'll have to deal with it, but I'm looking forward to it," Jenkins said. "I don't have nothing to hide. I just go in and they ask me the questions and I give it to them and I'm honest and I look them in the eye and talk to them and let them know that I am honest and I learned from my mistakes."
