Does he not like money?...
The type of guy that could break a team's heart with the character issues, but he has the potential to be a perennial all pro.
I wouldn't touch the kid. Sounds like he's ready for his NFL payday and thats all he cares about
Sounds like the guy wants the pay without having to do the work.
AND he wasn't smart enough to do some work to get a really big payday before going into rest mode. Lazy AND not very smart.
I wonder how far he'll eventually fall? Out of the first round possibly?
We might see something worse than Alan Branch here.
I moved him from my #3 OT to #4 just based on the events of the last couple of days. He also fell from my #8 overall to #14.
I know one thing though, I wouldn't want this guy on my team if I were a player.
Doubt it. On the field he is the best OL prospect in the draft. Some team (probably in the top half of the 1st round) will think that they can be the ones to overcome/correct/harness his immaturity.
I doubt he'd get past Oakland.
Agreed - I'm guessing that if he can put together even a close to average pro day/individual workout, he'll go before the Texans pick.
I saw his interview Friday about the Bowl Game, and thought the kid just doesn't get it. He has had 2 months to come up with a story and he did not have one. Plus he was kicked off the team for being involved with and agent and he just now gets one, a couple of weeks before the combine? Kid is just that an immature kid. I would not want to be the team paying him millions.
Maybe going pro isn't in his head...Don't know what is. If he loves football, he should have been ready for this moment. GM's and coaches see "red flags" when this sort of thing happens...although maybe he didn't want to go to Detroit or St. Louis
He'll still go top 14.
Good for the Texans if he does.
Small thing here but the article said he got kicked off the team... I thought Sabin just suspended him for the bowl game.
Anyways, I think some things just get blown out of proportion sometimes. This may make his draft stock drop a bit but the bottom line is he's still one of the best OL prospects this year. He doesn't seem like a high risk, off the field kind of guy regarding drugs, guns, violence, etc.
Some of his recent actions are really just weird, he is wasting himself a lot of money. But he definitely has a place on any number of NFL teams and should still get drafted in the top 10. Lots of teams need OT help. Maybe he doesn't go 2 but he'll go in the top half of the 1st.
We need him to go before us so another guy falls.
If he fell to 15 I am confident Gibbs will break him down one way or another. He'd either become the OL he is capable of or he'd have a mental breakdown from all the screaming coming his way.
He isn't even ready for his NFL payday!
