    They seem very similar as prospects. I think Joseph's career will unfortunately be similar. What are the key differences if any?

    Differences? I'd like to hear how they're the same other than the obvious.

    There are a lot of players with similar measurables. Some know how to use what they have, others do not.

    That's one of the things that makes it difficult to make the right pick. You can have a player with great measurables who just can't play the game and a player with terrible measurables who understands what he needs to do to maximize what he's got.

    LOL. People seem offended. Jenkins did make it to the Pro Bowl in his 2nd season.

    Joseph is taller than Jenkins. Joseph is faster than Jenkins. Joseph can jump high than Jenkins. Joseph can change directions quicker than Jenkins. But yeah, they are similar prospects...even though they are two completely different people. Sigh!

    Agreed until Dak records a song the trajectory of his career is the same as Mike Jenkins

    Weight: 197 pounds

    Broad Jump: 117 inches
    20 Yd Shuttle: 4.40 seconds

    Joseph (pro day results so not 100% official):

    40 Yard Dash: 4.35 seconds
    40 Yard (MPH): 18.81 (MPH)
    20 Yard Split: 2.48 seconds
    10 Yard Split: 1.44 seconds
    Bench Press: (N/A) reps (225 lb)

    Joesph is a faster, more explosive athlete. I know those numbers look similar but that tenth of a second in the forty translates into a few yards on the football field. The only comparison is the team that drafted them. If Joseph wasn't pursuing a career in the music industry, he would have gone higher. Teams were unsure of his commitment to football.

    Measurables are similar. But idk. I see more natural fluidity in Joseph.

    all that being said. Mike Jenkins started his career out pretty strongly. But eventually it fell apart for various reasons. Injuries, etc.

    We shall see.

    Let's hope like hell hes not a quitter and slacker like Jenkins and jaylon. Dallas needs him and other picks to work out badly.

    I liked Jenkins. When’s the last time we had a player with 5 picks in a season?
