    This guy was rated pretty highly. Excellent 3 Technique DT that was basically unblockable at times. This is going to hurt him severly IMO. Just stupid.

    LSU DE Wroten Jr. arrested on drug chargesAssociated Press

    STERLINGTON, La. -- LSU defensive end Claude Wroten Jr. was arrested on a drug charge after police stopped him for speeding and found marijuana in his car, authorities said Thursday.

    Wroten, 22, of Bastrop, was booked late Wednesday for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and was released on $3,000 bond from the Ouachita Correctional Center, police said.

    Officers stopped Wroten on U.S. 165 around 11:35 p.m. Wednesday just north of Sterlington High School, Police Chief Barry Bonner said. He was clocked at 77 mph in a 65 mph zone, Bonner said.

    When asked if he had anything illegal in the car, Bonner said Wroten admitted having marijuana for personal consumption. Officers found one bag inside the car in plain view and discovered another tucked in his shoe.

    Wroten also had $4,000 in cash, which he said was a loan from his financial adviser to prepare for NFL training, the chief said. Police were unable to immediately contact the adviser, whose name was not released.

    Wroten, a senior, played on the LSU team that defeated the University of Miami in the Dec. 20 Peach Bowl. Wroten was credited with 45 tackles and five sacks this season. Early NFL draft predictions had Wroten being picked in early rounds.

    He could not be reached for comment. His father, Claude Wroten Sr., answered the phone at the family's home in Bastrop on Thursday.

    "I believe he was set up because Claude is not a drug dealer," the elder Wroten said in an interview with The Associated Press. "But that's what happens when kids don't listen to their parents."

    Wroten's father said he and his wife had been discussing their son's future with an agent, whom he wouldn't name, but Claude Jr. decided to go his own way. "He was talking to some fellow in New York who opened his eyes so wide," he said. "When he started making his own decisions, this is what happened."

    The Wrotens said they had not yet spoken with their son, who lives with them. He said he did not know if an attorney had been assigned to the case and was unsure what would happen next.

    LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said Wroten had completed his athletic eligibility.

    Would be great but unfortunatly, I don't see BP drafting too many 3 Technique DTs. I know, I know, I too wish we ran a 43.

    All this over a couple of twamps?

    Not the smartest thing to do of you're considering declaring yourself but I don't think that this will effect his status too much.

    Hos, I thought Hawthorne tested positive at the combine and that's why his stock crashed.

    If this kid can keep his nose clean (so to speak) and he doesn't test positive for any drugs do you think that this will still drop his stock?

    Yeah only way we draft a 3 Tech is if he has enough strength to play DE in the 3-4. Not enough college programs run the 3-4 to just grab guys that are already 5 techs.

    Of course we have some young depth there next year already (Canty, Spears, Ratliff, ext...) Anyone else we draft would have to be a low round "prospect" pick.

    He's a young Glover which would've been great for a 4-3, but not 3-4..

    Things people do or situations they put themselves in makes no sense sometimes, IMO.. Just be a good boy, and you will have millions..Is that so hard to do? lol
