I'm not saying him accepting everything was right, but I am saying he does make a case for himself if he is at last telling the truth. In my oppinion it does help his draft stock. However, only in the aspect that people see he wasn't asking for any of it or pressuring for it to happen...it was offered so he took it as wrong as it is.

If he really is working out like he says he is, I hope he shows up at the combine in great shape and running like he did when he played. It shows how much he wants it and how hard he is willing to work to get some credibility back. (I saw a picture of him at the interview and wondered if he looked like he'd lost a little weight since he is trying to get down to 5% and below body fat).

He has made some big mistakes and is being childish in blaming it all on OSU...but it does take a little of the guilt and negativity of his character off of himself.
