Post Da'Rick Rogers
Quote:
Bills signed Tennessee Tech WR Da'Rick Rogers.
Rogers (6-foot-2 1/2, 217) closed out his college career at Tennessee Tech after racking up a 67/1,040/15.5/9 line as a sophomore Tennessee Vol. Rogers was dismissed from Tennessee for "mutiple" substance-abuse violations, and since admitted to three failed drug tests for smoking marijuana. At the Combine, Rogers ran a 4.52 forty and his 11-foot broad jump was second longest among receivers. As a 20-year-old, Rogers dominated the SEC to the extent that he might have been a first-rounder if not for off-field concerns. Character concerns were certainly the main reason Rogers went undrafted, but he could turn into a Week 1 starter for the Bills if he keeps his head on straight.

It would have made Miami draft look even better.

Not only did I want Miami to grab him, but now they will have to defend him twice a year. The guy is a stud.

Not sure what he did that trumps Miami not being interested. Its not like they drafted a TE who stole laptops.

I guess that trumps thievery. For a 7th I'd gamble on that type talent, but Ireland played the lower part of this draft very poorly. Traded away picks he could have used. Like the Niners landing Lattimore because they had so many picks to gamble on him.

And he takes away from practice time and team consistency if he fails another drug test or two, or three

Sometimes it's about where you go also. No qb at Buffalo, they will suck again and let's be real its Buffalo so there's nothing to do so I can see him getting into more trouble

Maybe, but where is the difference between him & Tyrann Mathieu who went in early in Rd. 3. Same offense & Mathieu is not that much more talented than Rodgers.

Mathieu is not more talented than Rogers. I thought that pick was the biggest joke of the draft.

Mathieu was un-draftable to me, honestly. In the 3rd round it was an absolute joke.

Trust me as someone who comes from somewhere that has nothing to do, you don't so much find the drugs as the drugs find you. They're everywhere around here because we don't really have anything else to occupy our time. It's not hard drugs, mind you, but drugs nonetheless.
