NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #14- New Orleans Saints- DB Malcom Jenkins

The first defensive back taken in the draft.

ESPN writes- At 6-feet Jenkins is on the taller side for a corner. Corners that size can have a hard time sinking their hips and exploding out of their cuts, but he has the toughness, speed and ball skills to develop into an effective press or Cover 2 corner, but we believe he may be a better fit at safety. He’s a sound tackler, does an excellent job of reading eyes when he lines up at safety and has enough range to cover the deep half of the field. He can also match up with slot wideouts in certain situations.
