His "Character" issues are pretty well documented. He lost his scholarship to cinci in 06. For not attending class and other non legal issues that were stipulations of his scholarship. BUT, instead of packing up and transferring to another school, like most kids would have done, he lived out of his car and worked 4 jobs to pay back his tuition to stay at cinci. He had offers from 1-AA schools to come and play but wanted to see through his end of the deal at cinci. Not really anything that would make me shy away from drafting him!
I like the kid for what he can do on the field. His 40 time was to be expected (4.52) and he admitted he needs to work on his starts... but put in a tape and tell me who is catching him from behind? Times and drills can be a bit deceiving. Plus, he didnt ever play WR until 07. He was recruited as a CB/ returner. So he is gonna be a bit raw in his route running on the pro level. But he has skills that cant be taught like vision and elusiveness.
Really the only thing i dont like about him is that he admittedly wants to be a Bengal cause he loves Cinci... that one hurt a bit Mardy!!!
