Hmm.. Add OU to the list with LSU of college programs that trash their own players before the draft.
It's too bad cause I like Jefferson coming into the draft. I think he's underrated, but if that's the case then I'm sure we won't even bother with him. Maybe he'll slip to the late 3rd. Who knows.

Jefferson denies it (obviously). Here's an exerpt from the article:
Jefferson, though, unleashed a barrage of tweets Tuesday in response to the report.
“Also y'all be careful who y'all let pat you on the back,” read the final part of Jefferson's several- tweet response. “They could be patting you on ur back to find a soft spot, just to stab you in it!”
In response to an OU fan on Twitter, Jefferson said, “been a leader in the weightroom since I got there.”
To another Twitter user, he said, “Coaches hate me man. It's all good tho.”
Sooner coaches never once specifically criticized Jefferson's work ethic or commitment; to the contrary, Mike Stoops often praised Jefferson for playing most of last season on a badly sprained ankle.
For much of his sophomore season, Jefferson played with a sprained knee.
ESPN.com ranks Jefferson as the fifth-best safety prospect available in the 2013 draft. Last week on a conference call with reporters, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., said he expects Jefferson to be a second-round pick.
“I like the way he plays the game,” Kiper said. “He's got real good awareness. Real good instincts for the position. He's been a playmaker his whole career.”
