Default Re: Alabama linebacker Hightower's pedigree boosts draft status

Where did Burfict disappear to after his 40 time? I did not see him in another drill. He probably pretended to be hurt to explain his slow 40 time and not have to look more like a fool in the other drills. Mike Mayock says he is so all over the field over pursuing running plays. He blames everybody else for his own woes including teammates and coaches. This guy is a moron. A slow moron at that.

Hightower by far the better choice for the Steelers looked real good in his drills and 4.60 isn't bad, however I would hope by some miracle Luke Kuechly falls to us instead.

Sounds like some NFL scouts dont think the same.

After speaking to NFL scouts and assistant coaches at the Combine, CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman suggests Arizona State ILB Vontaze Burfict is in for a draft-day plunge."I'm not sure any player here sparked a worse reaction than Vontaze Burfict," writes Feldman. "I wouldn't touch him," one scout said. "... The guy is completely out of control. There's no way you could trust him. I can't believe they (ASU coaching staff) didn't cut him loose." Added one NFL coach, "You just scratch your head at some of the knucklehead things he does on tape. It was the same thing over and over and over again with him."

You can have all the skill in the world, but the minute you disobey coaches orders, you severely hurt yourself in the long run. I love Vontaze's skillset, but I HATE his attitude. James Harrison would make this punk look like Satans worst enemy.

i wouldn't say it's james harrison problems. james doesn't have an anger or attitude problem, he is just intense and hits people freaking hard.

burfict's issues are more along the lines of a child who can't control his anger problems a la bryan cox. or like chris kemoeatu but even worse, he plays a position that requires a LOT more composure than guard. i will be surprised if this guy isn't a complete failure in the nfl. it's a shame because he is ultra talented, but the game of football is much more mental than physical
