    Default To Draft , Or Not To Draft . That Is The Question !

    O.K. , being from Columbus , I've had this dude in my face for 4 years now . He has helped to knock my beloved Buckeyes down a few pegs , turned his back on his teamates , and generally gave the finger to one of the most storied programs in NCAA football history ! It goes without saying , that he is an immense talent , but he's also quite the headcase .

    So if you were an NFL GM , and your job depended on you making good personnel decisions , do you draft Maurice Clarett ? If so .....what round ?


    Personally , I'd take a chance on the guy in one of the late rounds and hope that he matures into the player I think he can be . Honestly though , once he gets that signing bonus , he might pull a Ricky Williams !

    Well I'm a Buckeyes fan as well, and I was actually just talkin to a friend of mine about this topic earlier today.

    I personally think he'll be a late 2nd or 3rd pick, and yes I would take a chance on him. He's a big guy that runs with authority. His style sort of reminds me of O.J. a bit, with that stand up style of running. I'd take a chance on the kid, and I heard that the Eagles are considering it.

    And I'll guarantee you that he will not get a signing bonus. He's going to have to earn that down the road.

    • 25FEB05 Houston Chronicle on Maurice Clarett:

    Former Ohio State RB Clarett has undergone a stunning transformation. When Clarett showed up at the NFL scouting combine a year ago, he was overweight and out of shape and in desperate need of an attitude adjustment. On Thursday, Clarett surprised about 200 members of the media by reporting in excellent shape, admitting his mistakes and vowing to turn around a promising but controversial career that had careened out of control. "This day has been on my calendar for a long time," Clarett said. "I wanted to come here and interview with everybody and (get rid) of the knocks everybody had on me."

    That's great that the kid has had some serious coaching on what to do and say , but a leopard can't change it's spots ! I like Maurice and hope he does well in the NFL , but it's buyer beware with this cat !

    I would draft him by round 5, no signing bonus, and if he pulls a Ricky Williams, his ball-sack will be no more.
    Just go for it!

    Most folks are saying round 4, which sounds about right to me. Signing bonus? If he gets one at all, it's with a Ricky clause.

    Lawrence Phillips is a bit harsh. I don't really recall Maurice throwing his girlfriend down a flight of stairs.

    It's pretty clear that the guy is no saint, but he's no criminal IMO. If the Eagles take him I think it'll be good for him. It's guys like that that need to be put in a good situation with good coaches. Had Moss been drafted by a team that didn't cater to him, he wouldn't be in Oakland right now. It's all about good coaching I think, and if Maurice lands in a good orginization, I believe he'll take the ball and run with it. Pardon the pun.

    ...or Oakland could just draft him now and save everyone else from dealing with the hassles until he's inevitably traded there anyway!

    He ran a high 4.8-4.9 40-yarder at the combine, and didn't participate in drills. Late-rounder at best, from what the talking heads are saying.

    True enough, Pasquerelli gave those as unofficial times. Something about if you're not top 5, the times get thrown out?

    NFL Network mentioned some had him at 4.9.....

    At any rate, he'll go somewhere, at least for camp.

    I heard 4.9 myself. That's just not getting it done, and apparently he just stopped in the middle of the workout. You just can't have that crap. I don't want a guy that's gonna quit on the team in the middle of the game. His stock has dropped tremendously, and I hope my Birds stay away from this guy.

    You're forgetting about falsifying a police report , and insurance fraud . Which are criminal . He got off light , because of who he was ! There's things we know about here in Columbus that never made national news . The guy was big trouble from game 3 of his freshman year on !
