Post Truly amazing how quickly the shine comes off the apple
Quote:
One NFL scout told Pro Football Weekly that Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore is a "mess off the field."
Moore was arrested for marijuana possession in 2011, but other than that has no known off-the-field issues. Perhaps more concerning were Moore's 12 reps on the 225-pound bench press in Indianapolis. The low total is an indication of not only below-average strength in the upper body, but suspect work ethic.


Utah DT Star Lotulelei will not work out at the Combine after his medical evaluation revealed a heart condition.
Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Lotulelei's left ventricle is pumping at 44 percent efficiency, with the normal range being 55-70 percent. He will undergo further testing in Utah. It's a massive blow for a potential top-five pick. Lotulelei was a workhorse for the Utes, but this will raise questions about his durability, even if the issues prove minor. For now, Lotulelei's rep is claiming his client will participate in every drill at Utah's March 20 Pro Day.

One NFL scout called Utah's Star Lotulelei the "most overrated of the bunch," when referencing the DT group.
"He doesn't really generate pressure," the same evaluator told Packers beat writer bob McGinn. "He doesn't shed guys and make plays. Sometimes he disappears. Other times he surely dominates." Another NFL scout said "He's a better player than Dontari Poe coming out. He's quick-footed, strong, can run."

Citing a league source, Profootballtalk.com reports Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones' neck injury (spinal stenosis) is causing "multiple teams" to shy away from him, particularly in round one.
PFT reports Jones is being removed from draft boards, ostensibly after Combine medical exams confirmed the stenosis. Jones received a clean bill of health at Georgia and dominated the SEC, but he's opted out of Combine drills and "multiple teams" have "already decided to avoid him." We witnessed a similar situation in the 2011 draft. Widely expected to be a top-ten pick, Da'Quan Bowers slipped all the way to Bucs' second-round selection (No. 51). Feb 23 - 12:18 PM

I saw these guys mocked 1, 2 and 3 overall in alot of drafts the past 4 months and now they're all facing slides in the rankings.

Y'know , its a crap shoot anyway. Take a chance on a guy with questionable off field issues or what everyone perceives as a sure thing. When the draft ends I can assure you that we will all love our picks (as we do every year) but in reality how fast a kid runs a 40 or how he looked on a tape does not mean he will be a player on Sundays. Only time will tell.

Russ Lande of the National Football Post hears Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been "very unimpressive" in team interviews at the Combine.
Lande suggests Patterson's poor interviews coupled with an up-and-down showing in Combine pass-catching drills could result in him "sliding down draft boards."

Might not be a Philbin type of player . .

Damontre Moore has really cost himself alot of money at this combine. Proved to be weak on the bench and slow in the 40 for a speed rusher.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore managed a forty time of 4.95 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Moore did better in the broad jump (10-foot-2) and vertical leap (35 1/2 inches), but the forty time is slow for an undersized, 250-pound defensive end. Moore did not help his stock in Indianapolis, failing to quash concerns about his explosive ability or lack thereof. He projects as a middle to late first-rounder.
