Default Would you draft Clarrett?

At the combine, so far, he's ripped, in shape, and saying all the right things. Assuming he has a good combine overall, if u r an NFL GM, would u take a chance and draft him?

Yes, but only after round four. If he is there then take him you have too. Look at last year. Most of our guys from there on, only made the practice squad. If it doesn't work out then you didn't lose much. However, pick him too early and you have to make sure he stays clean and out of trouble, too much babysitting if you ask me. You should want to stay in the NFL once you get drafted, not expect it to owe you something.

Wow, talk about 24 hours making a difference. When I posted, the Bus had not signed and Clarrett was in good shape. Then I go to work, and come home to see we have the Bus for one year and Clarrett is the slowest man from the Ohio State University next to the band leader. Wonder if I can change my vote?

Hell no...I hate him so much! Really, I think he was too much trouble at OSU, and well he thinks he's above everything in the NFL...I would love for him not to get drafted at all...which I don't see happenening, but he definately won't go early!

Since we are talking about baggage and such...We drafted Plax who was a rare bird in college. And for the most part, besides that Cleveland party, things worked out and Plax stayed clean. And that Moss might have been available that one year. Do you think PIT is a strong enough organization to keep players in check(ie Dillon in NE) or do we need to be extra careful in drafting and signing troubled children? Just curious I guess.

Sorry to keep double dipping, but here is a good article about two sides to a story. I still think Clarrett is a head case and would cause more trouble than good, but this shows what athletes will do to get their shot at the big time. I felt sorry for him because I know about cooking at a high level and then realizing you tried to do too much. I can only imagine how it is when you were set for the NFL and then rejected and spend a year and half getting back to it.

if he was around the 5-7th picks and i had one i would pick this kid up. just let cohwer get on his ass hell be fine in no time, and anyway after what i saw and read about him this kid ,he was 250 when he first wanted in the nfl and this year added 5 more pounds before combine and then got told 2 months before to lose the eight by a adv that he meet bc his frame cant handle it so they kid tried losing the 30 pounds. but only lost like 27 of them and then tired to work out in the combine when his body didnt have anything to give after losing that much weight in that short of time.
