    Was checking out the Draftcountdown scouting reports on these Bama players and just thought I'd share the info.

    RB Trent Richardson
    Relatively minor concerns about maturity/character
    Battled some injuries so durability might be an issue
    Surgery to repair left ankle ligaments in high school
    Sat out two contests with a sprained knee in 2010
    Arthroscopic surgery on left knee in February 2012

    S Mark Barron
    Battled injuries so durability is a concern
    Surgery to repair torn pectoral muscle in 2010
    Surgery to repair double hernia after 2011 season

    OLB Courtney Upshaw
    Minor character concerns must be investigated
    Has been hampered by knee tendonitis

    CB Dre Kirkpatrick
    Some minor character and maturity issues
    Battled injuries and durability is a concern
    History of shoulder injuries
    History of hamstring issues
    Suffered a concussion in 2011

    ILB Dont'a Hightower
    May have some durability and conditioning issues
    Missed most of 2009 season with a torn ACL in left knee
    Broke left hand in 2011, which required surgery to repair


    In comparison, none of these players were said to have character concerns and their injury history was rated as none of consequence.

    DT Dontari Poe
    ILB Luke Kuechly
    DE Quentin Coples
    OG David DeCastro
    CB Stephon Gilmore
    OG Cordy Glenn
    C Phillip Blake
    C Michael Brewster


    Make of it what you will...

    Is it just me, or are people mentioning Michael Brewster again in draft threads for some reason? What's up with that?

    DT Dontari Poe - doesn't show on tape in C-USA
    ILB Luke Kuechly - small
    DE Quentin Coples - lacks motor
    OG David DeCastro - no problems
    CB Stephon Gilmore - more of a zone guy
    OG Cordy Glenn - no problems
    C Phillip Blake - old
    C Michael Brewster - got destroyed at senior bowl

    I have read the same thing about Richardson on other sites and they are saying it's because he already has 2-3 kids, I can't remember the exact number.

    All you have to do for Upshaw is watch the post game of the national championship game.
