Also Kirkpatrick has always been an immature player and one that Saban spent a lot of time trying to mold. Sure enough he gets out from under the pressure of a system that demands acountability and he is caught with a bag in his front shirt pocket. No way I draft him high.
Give me the other Bama CB. Dequan Menzie. Better CB and a mature player.
The thing that also bothers me is that, according to someone in the know ( whom I know ), he was part of Rolando McClain's posse. I don't know how much truth is behind that, but if it's anywhere near close, I don't want the Cowboys to get near him because it will be just a matter of time before the other shoe drops.
