I'm worried this kid has alcoholic tendencies and in no way shape or form would I risk a #1 pick on a kid that has those flags surrounding him. We're already seeing it play out in Jacksonville.

Great college player (college, where a lot can be swept under a rug), I don't want him on my NFL team (NFL, where a camera is shoved up your rear 24/7.. especially at the QB position).
I have no problem with his off field behavior, he is in a fact a 20 yr old who won the Heisman and afforded many extra curricular activities. I expect immaturity from a 20 yr old hotdog. Once football season started he answered the call better than ever. What would bother me is if he was the last one to get to the office and the first one to leave. What the 2013 college season has shown to this point is that doesn't appear to be a problem.
