I wasn't the least bit shocked. The NFL isn't the real world. If I show up to my job unprepared like Clarrett showed up to the combine last year, or walk out, or not show up like Clarrett did this year at the combine after a bad 40 time.....I'm fired.
The NFL is sending the wrong message. I mean the SD Chargers drafted a player in the first round that tested positive for steroids, no matter what his excuse was, that doesn't sit well with me. Character isn't what matters most.
I thought Clarrett could go as early as the Raiders pick in the second round. I was wrong too. BUT, I was a lot closer than some of the guys that called me an idiot or told me I know nothing about football......they told me the 6th or 7th round or undrafted if anything.
In the real world a guy like Clarrett can't hold down a job...in the NFL he's gunna live very comfortably.
Good for him.
