Da'Rick Rogers - WR Tenn. Tech
 
He could very well be the best receiver in this draft. I would love to see us take the chance on him if he's still there by the 3rd round. However, I'm sure you guys already know about his problems off the field, the reward outweigh the risk? Thoughts?

I don't pay much attention to college football, so I'm not familiar with his problems. I see he's failed a drug test and got kicked off the team. Is this a Holmes type situation? I say the reward is worth the risk in that case.

“There were a couple of drug tests,” Rogers said. “And it was about me being a young, immature guy and those are things that I’ve got to work on. I plan to do that. When it came to review my next school and I met coach (Watson) Brown I most definitely felt like he was a guy that could help me with all my things and the situation that I had going on.”

I'm his age now so I can relate to him better than other guys can, but I think we can all relate to being young and making stupid decisions. He failed a drug test because he had some pot - so what? He wasn't taking PEDs and he hasn't failed multiple tests - just one that led him to leave UT and transfer to Tennessee Tech.

If he's there in the second round, it'll be a discussion for us. You're right - I think he is the best WR in this draft and I think his size and frame fit what we're lacking right now. He's 6'3, 215 lbs and he has reliable and sure-hands.

Brown - Sanders - Rogers is a hell'uva trio.

Mike who, again?

I always heard bad things about Rogers but if it was really just one failed pot test then I don't think he's an unrealistic pick. We took a chance on Mike Adams and that was even worse because it was at the combine and he knew he needed to be clean for that.

Then again we traded a Super Bowl MVP for a 5th round pick over weed so who knows.

Also, how the hell did Tennessee end up with all these receivers? Patterson, Hunter, and Rogers would probably be a top ten, maybe even top 5 NFL receiving corps, and they haven't even played a down.

The recruiter for Tennessee needs a raise, that's forsure.

As someone who has Watched UT football for the past 40 years..And Steeler football for the past 40 years.." WE DO NOT WANT DA'RICK ROGERS". :wave: He's a tremendous talent but also a tremendous head case. When Hunter went down their sophmore year..Rogers was the man but became such a cancer in the locker room and with coaches to deal with, ( He even got into shouting matches with the strength and conditioning coaches) that long time veteran coach Charlie Baggett ( he coached Moss and Carter with The Vkings, Coached "BAD MOON" Rison at Michigan State) left to go back to the NFL..."BABY SITTING ROGERS WAS A SUCH A PAIN IN THE BUTT". ( Before Rogers ever played a down at UT he was involved in a bar fight off campus that injured one cop)

This past season every one at UT couldn't wait for the debut of the trio of a healthy Hunter, Patterson and Rogers..I mean come on who you going to cover in that bunch?:noidea: Rogers had been suspended from the team but had worked his way back ( Failed drug test)Former Coach Derek Dooley had raved about what a leader on and off the field Rogers had become then one week before the opener against North Carolina State Rogers was dismissed from the team.:banging:

Apparently he had flunked ANOTHER drug test and was going to have to sit for 4 games..Instead of taking the punishment..he got got abusive with Dooley and then Wr coach Darin Hinshaw and was sent packing down the road to Cookeville, Tn and Tennessee Tech..

He's a tremendous talent who's plays like Anquain Bolden. About the same size and plays the same way...But man you never know what kind of stunt he going to pull...I've always said he was a million dollar talent with a ten cent brain..

Whoever drafts this kid and gives him a lot of money better be prepared to go through a bunch of sleepless nights...

You might draft him in the lower rounds but I'd hold my breath with him on the roster.


When he was a freshman these pictures surfaced on the internet and Rogers and Vol fans caught Hell about "FAT WHITE CHICKS AND MIKE'S HARD ICE".http://kentuckysportsradio.com/?p=116900
