it amazes me how these professionals fall for that shit. common sense should tell you that if a player is that physically gifted and isn't a college super star amongst his college peers, then most likely he's not going to fair well in the pro's.
do you think maybe it's just arrogance from NFL personnel ? maybe they think their superior coaching can bring things out of the player that their college coaches couldn't...
