LenDale White another Clarett?
 
Jason Cole, writing for NBCSports.com, reports USC RB LenDale White is being mentioned in the same company as free agent RB Maurice Clarett. An NFL exeutive said, "We had one of our scouts go up and ask him what was going on (after White didn't run). The kid said his hamstring was tight or something like that. Then we tried to find out when he was going to run and he didn't know. It didn't even sound like he was going to run. What does this kid think?" A former USC offensive player who once was a teammate of White's said, "The guy can play, but he just gets by. He coasted in practice and he coasted in the offseason. He came in thinking he just had to put in his time and that's what you see now." The teammate added that the things White was able to do was because he played next to RB Reggie Bush and the other guys around him. He added that White would be amazing if he really worked at it.

Jason Cole, writing for NBCSports.com, reports USC RB LenDale White wore a loose-fitting warm-up suit during his Pro Day in an effort to not show much of his body. He drew audible groans from NFL scouts at the NFL Combine when he showed his chest. After seeing White at the NFL Combine, one NFL general manager said, "The guy needed a bra, it was ridiculous. You come to the combine looking like that and you want to be a first-round pick? Come on. The guy had obviously been doing nothing."....LMAO.....Please everybody forget about this guy I've read in plenty of other places about his work ethic...He doesn't have any.....you gotta have more then just talent to make it in the NFL.....:helmet:

definitely not another clarett. all he really needs is a jerome bettis type mentor to take him under his wing and show him the ropes and proper ethic that is necessary to succeed. all the potential in the world is already there. hes young with room to learn.

however many have been burnt giving certain people the benefit of the doubt. i guess deciphering all that will come after the #31 pick and lendale is still on the board. im leaning towards drafting him.

hopefully he's doing this so he can drop and come play for the steelers lol, i'm sure once he gets drafted and someone takes him under their wing he'll be just fine, it's a slow draft this year with no negative stories so i guess they just trying to make lendale one

If he needs a bra, sh** the Steelers will get him one. Just as long he can produce thats all that matters.

Yeah, I hate to say this, but circumstances like this were the only way he was gonna fall to #32 in the first place...if the Steelers had any chance of drafting him, his stock needed to drop severely, on the only way that happens is if bad things about the guy surface, which is exactly what's going on.

At this point, with Duce and Willie on board, I'd look in rds 3+ for a running back and give this guy a pass...
