Not saying that it is likely we'll go after a "character" guy.. but what if?
I would love it. I think he is a good talent. At some point McSmithiak (uh oh new name) is going to have to look at the character of their football team and say 'we have enough character guys to set the precedent of how to act when you play football here.' and take a low risk gamble on a guy like this.
The fact that he isn't going to get a huge amount of carries should also be what helps him adjust to NFL life.
