... have a misconception of some points the posters have been offering you in the other Clarett threads.
Yes, we can label his actions mistakes, but there a certain group who feels alot of these mistakes were fueled be self serving immaturity. Enough that there may be a real risk to be involved in this kid.
Next the measurables used to determine what this kid has physically is suspect to say the least.
So what does an NFL GM or fan have to hang his hat on in terms of an evaluation of this kid?
He's shown immaturity.
There's a strong hint that he looks at the league as a big payday.
He's given up on some poor physical results.
If you are looking out for the interests of the Cowboys and not trying to save Clarett from his own self destructive behavior, where would you pick him.
I'm all for mining hidden talent, but as another Clarett supporter has compared him to Priest Holmes - I agree. His only real value up to Friday is as an undrafted free agent. No promised money, no contract just a shot at the squad.
Then let's see what kind of heart this kid has. Is he willing to run hard in the Texas training camp heat? Will he listen to a disciplinarian like Bill? Is he willing to outhustle a Div. II athlete for a spot on special teams?
I have suspicions on how he will perform, but one thing I'm firm about; this guy is not worth a draft pick with what he has shown so far.
That privilege is reserved for those who actually give a darn about doing their mental and physical homework in preparation for the combine. That's suppose to show the coaches and GMs that you have the personal drive and determination to prepare to execute on goals and succeed in a tough envirinment as the NFL.
