    We all know about his terrible 40. We know he played terrible last year and he is free-falling down draft boards. But at what point do you gamble on him? 4th? 5th? Never?

    Two years ago he played well. No one can argue that and maybe around a strong locker room he could develop into what is potential is. At what point do you gamble on a talented, but a head case player in the draft?

    Not a fit for this team.

    Nothing wrong with a sixth round choice if he is there. Someone will take a chance on him earlier I bet. But we need speed at the LB position, Eagles and Giants have too much team speed so we have to counter that with speed on our defense as well.

    So, he'd be about the last guy you'd pick?

    He might be a good player if he finds the fit and a strong locker room. But dallas is not the place for him we draft him in any round he is out of the league in 2 years.

    I currently attend Arizona State and he's a laughing stock around here.

    He was last or 2nd to last in the 3 major drills. His athleticism was supposed to carry him to a decent draft pick but the combine showed he doesn't have much of it.

    The guy gets eaten up by OL and usually tried to run around them. He's no good.

    I was a Burfict fan too, but the guy did not take the combine/offseason very seriously. Why would any team do the same for him?

    He blew it. The guy will be lucky to go in the 4th. And the only way that happens is if he gets an epiphany, trains like a madman and blows everyone away at his pro day. With his lackadaisical attitude, very unlikely.

    I would gamble on him starting in the 4th round, but it seems that he either doesn't care about football or is just lazy. Maybe it's both. You would think he's the next Ray Lewis when viewing his Youtube highlights before you realize that they were all from previous years.

    Tons of talent with a two-cent head.

    That's a good argument not to draft him.

    Anyway, Lee and Carter have plenty of speed/reaction time at LB.

    When people drop off so much I think of drugs.

    he is not for us

    however, i would not be surprised to have the ravens or the steelers pick him and for him to have a productive career with them

    If he doesn't get drafted, then I would bring him in as a free agent, but thats about it.

    I agree with you on both accounts. Its just amazing to see how much he has fell in the last year. He will be quite a big storyline on day 3 of the draft.

    No need for Bad Attitude and lack of work ethic. I will be pissy if we pick or sign this kid.

    And, believe it or not, some here were pimping him in the 1st rd for the Cowboys just about a month or two ago IIRC.:)
