I don't get it. He's one of those guys who had a chance to raise his draft stock after his great Rose Bowl performance. Then he shows up to his own pro day all fat and lazy.

White's agent needs to be fired.

Cool



That's me and LenDale. Pudge probably wants to save his best stuff for private workouts, like Leinart, I guess.

Maybe he just feels like it's all going to come down to what he does once he's actually in the NFL. :

He may have tried the opposite approach of VY. Both have very similar situations, both were overlooked at their positions and then both had games for the ages at the Rose Bowl. Now they agents have taken different paths. VY's is letting VY do what he wants, like playing in that skills competition after the college season when most people said he shouldnt hurt his stock. A lot of people got on the VY camp because of this because it could only show problems with VY and this may have made White's camp take the other approach and let the game film speak for itself. White isn't going to run a jaw dropping 40, the only thing a 40 can do is hurt him (which is overrated), he may not be "bench strong" but on-the-field strong so he doesnt want teams thinking he is weak. He may just wanna put the game film in and show teams what he can do on the field.

Not suprising coming from a guy who was nearly 260 during the Rose Bowl. He won't be anything in the NFL with that work ethic.

Yeah, even if his on-the-field work speaks for itself, I'm not going to pour money on a guy who can't at least show me he wants to be an NFL player. I don't really know his situation (maybe he did accidently get hurt and doesn't want to compromise his 40 time), but you've got to show people some type of work ethic. It does sound like he's overweight, and the bench prseeing workout was kind of sad next to The President's numbers.

That said, he's still a good back. The stuff he did at USC is there. But right now 1st round picks should show a 1st round effort, especially when you're committing millions of dollars to a guy who already has a maturity issue.

Lendale is a lazy kid, he has been lazy and that is why he started early in his career and then lost carries to Reggie Bush. Do you honestly think that a 240lb RB that has his potential would have lost carries to a 200lb guy not likely. RB would have stayed an offensive specialist and then eventually moved to WR, but Lendale has no heart and sells himself short constantly. He will likely be a first rounder, but unless he gets a kick in the *** he will be a bust.

I stated in this thread that White is overrated.

I said he looked flabby and is going to need alot of work, and was basically laughed at by a person or two.

If you are a RB in the NFL, you really cant have flabby arms IMO. That just means that the rest of you is flabby.

I disagree. He will be taken in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are looking to replace the Bus and he is a similar style back. Working in a system where he doesnt have to shoulder the load is best for him and with Parker there, he would be the goal line back and power back.

Maybe but what would've been wrong with playing the "pre-draft" game and making himself some money? Easy for me to say I suppose .....

Fear of having slow times and knowing that he's better on film and in actuall games? I'm just guessing.

Actually, I was under the apparently wrong impression that all rookies were paid the same amount untill contracts were signed AFTER the preseason ended, therefore allowing him to prove himself in preseason for whatever team drafted him. I assumed that because I think it SHOULD be that way, but it's obviously not.

PS-Guess I don't know didly about the money part of the game.

Cowher's not going to take a guy with a bad work ethic just because he fits a mold of what they want. It's almost inexcusable that someone getting ready for the NFL draft can't work out. His hamstring is keeping him from running the 40. He should still be able to lift weights to improve some upperbody strength. I had a chance after the Rose Bowl (obviously) to sit and watch the game in more detail. I wasn't as impressed with him then as I was during the game. He ran the ball up the middle well, but the linebackers were non-existent and gave him more yards than he normally would have had. He had one nice stiff arm on one TD run and the rest was pretty pedestrian. If a team takes him in the 1st I think they are getting a lemon.

He went to the Maurice Claurett "Road to the NFL" School. It has a high dropout rate.

Look at the good news. Now DeAngelo Williams and Laurence Maroney aren't likely to be there for Indy. They'll have to reach or take LenDale.

as long as he's gone before the 1st round ends ..... that pushes an additional prospect up to us with the 33rd pick ....

I think you're letting hindsight and his current state of affairs affect the way you are interpreting his performance in that game. Look at his burst through the hole, that's 250 coming fast and furious. NFL backs get one move before cutting upfield, he has that concept down pat. Yes, his O-line eating up defenders was a major component to his success, that's no shocker. Still, he manhandled the most solid tackling DB in this years draft and demoralized the Texas D (until that fateful play). If it wasn't for him, USC wouldn't have been close in that game, his running dropped the safety into the box and opened up the passing game. You say his performance looked "pedestrian", I look at it and say it was amazing in how simple it did look and how consistent he was. If his work ethic (and attitude) is an issue then he likely will fall, but I'm not going to try and take away his performance on the field...
