You might do some background work on his family, etc. but there's no way to know the answers to those questions. The same is true for every RB selected in the draft. I think you just have to go get this guy and see what happens. The upside is so huge you just have to do it regardless of the money.
The Texans already have a pretty good RB in Davis. They really need a lot more help in other areas. But some folks are saying you take him and sort it out later. I think I might trade down and get some more picks were I GM of the Texans but its a tough call.
