"Janoris Jenkins
Easily the most surprising name on the list. I doubt anyone making a top five list of corners in the NFL is including Jenkins and not getting laughed out of town. The way Green describes playing Jenkins makes him sound worthy of it though.
“Janoris has a technique that’s completely different from Pat and Joe, because he uses a soft backpedal off the line,” Green says. “Pat and Joe want to dictate your route. Janoris is the opposite. He lets you do your thing and then he reads your hips and the quarterback’s eyes to decide when to jump on the route. His instincts are the best in the NFL, and he’s extremely quick. Extremely quick.”
He also notes how Jenkins usually has safety help which allows him to be even more aggressive on jumping routes. This is pretty high praise from one of the NFL’s best receivers to say Jenkins has the best instincts in the NFL."
