ejected from a game at N. Alabama for throwing a punch at an opponent
4 kids by 3 women, one of which he had while playing at N. Alabama

They're totally the same though...
The sick thing is, when you realize how strict UGA is compared to UF, Jenkins was a total wastoid.

It takes SIX failed attempts at UF to get jettisoned.
UGA? 3.

Also, since the Rams drafted him at the top of the second, he'll be getting a contract very similar to Dalton's, which guaranteed him $3 million over 4 years. Not bad for a guy who under normal circumstances would be floating from dead-end job to dead-end job due to his criminal record.

I'm so glad we didn't draft him.

Ahmad Brooks I believe was a 3rd round supplemental guy and he's no longer here. Show me a list of the last 10 supplemental drafts and the list of viable NFL players that played for their original team more than 3 seasons is going to be quite short, no matter who they were coming out.
Bernie Kosar, Chris Carter, Jamal Williams

In 1984 Steve Young, Gary Zimmerman, Reggie White, William Fuller, wide receiver Gary Clark, return men Clarence Verdin and Gerald McNeil, running backs Kevin Mack and Mike Rozier, and linebackers Vaughan Johnson, Mike Johnson, and George Jamison were all taken in the supplemental draft

A 3rd for Terrell Pryor was way too much to pay.

We have an extra 2nd round pick.

Why not use it and get this kid who is a 1st round talent, but will never fall to us in the first round.

We can then use a 3rd rounder on the RB from BC.

They both get to spend a year in the NFL to learn before they would have been drafted. That should put them ahead of the curve in 2014, and give the team the depth it needs to go deep into the playoffs this year.

That would be a win, win for both sides.

If they both flop, it is the same as taking a 2nd and 3rd rounder who deosn't produce, and we all know the Bengals have done far worse in the past.

The only thing is that playoff teams from the year before have to bid a draft pick that is one round higher than non playoff teams.
Technically yes but if they don't submit a bid at all then that doesn't necessarily hold true.

More importantly, though, the safety class next year looks to be the strongest in quite some time (Eric Reid, TJ MacDonald (love the bloodline), Robert Lester, Ray Ray Armstrong (if you believe the hype, for which I don't) and two possible juniors in Robert Lester and Matt Elam (good bloodline also). Also, there really isn't a need to throw a supplemental pick at a guy who is going to come in way behind other draftees and veterans when our roster already looks packed beyond belief and we're going to have to cut a few great players already. Just my two cents.

Meyer clearly let the inmates run the asylum (which has come out in the news lately) but curious where you got that little tid bit from?
