I don't think he cost himself that much.

Maybe he could drop to the 2nd?? If so Brockers in the 1st and Kirkpatrick in the 2nd would be awesome! There are a lot of 1st/2nd round cornerbacks in this draft. Teams might pass on Kirkpatrick for one of those other CB's not wanting to take a risk on a "drug user." Personally I have no problem if he smokes weed as long as he sticks to business during the nfl season.

It just means he will go into the NFL substance abuse program after he is drafted. So yea it prob would have hurt if he was a top 5 player but he is not.

I think what he did was stupid, but sometimes you miss out when you pass on guys with uber talent and 'character concerns'

Not saying this situation applies, because I still have no idea who good he is.

Brockers in the first, Dre in the second.

Win/Win.

i don't think its the smoking as much as the stupidity of a projected 1st round pick getting caught with drugs. Come on man, let your friends hold it, you just smoke it. That is really dumb.


I am the absolute last person on this board that has anything bad to say about pot... But, I dont want players on my football team to smoke because it is bad for the lungs, and I dont want our defense, especially CBs out there getting beat like a drum because they cant breathe as well as other top-shape athletes.

character concerns aren't the issue. it's the timing of it.

Same category. When evaluations come out I bet money 'character concerns' will be listed & talked about. Happens every year. Last year the biggest name was Ryan Mallet.

it was a general statement that holds a lot of truth, aside from him getting caught in public when it is illegal. Perhaps I should have rephrased my quick response to this article...


let me do that by saying I think it's a shame he's getting in trouble for something that isn't harmful to him or anyone else in any way. I think it's a shame that his stock is going to be hurt due to a law that has no relevance to the truth in the matter. I think it's a shame that he can freely drink alcohol and never be looked down upon, yet the law was devised to harm people who use something harmless like marijuana..



I view the primary issue being it is illegal when it should not be, which is now resulting in this being a story at all..
