Even without Adam Jones, the Cowboys still have talented cornerbacks. The one Cowboys coach Wade Phillips spoke highly of over the weekend was first-round pick Mike Jenkins, who will start Sunday vs. the Rams.
“He’s got great movement,” Phillips said. “He can run, he’s got long arms, he just reaches in and knocks the ball out. He can bump-and-run really well. When we got him, we thought he could play this year. It could be a little while before he peaks, but we know he can play this year. He can and he will.”
