Edit: one thing is for sure rite now : either he was in on it or he wasnt. Our opinions seem to differ. To call my opinion an uneducated rant because i didnt read an article that you read is - well - just wrong.
It's well documented that he claimed to have met her in person. Now, it's possible he never did and just lied about it so he didn't sound like a loser. There is back tracking being done now, but he obviously lied about some details.

C) I think this commentor on profootballtalk.com's comment section said it best:

"fox6117 says:

He has an easy out here folks: he’s going to claim to be gay and he made this girlfriend up to avoid being blackballed by the Heisman voters and NFL teams… that are clearly anti-gay.

He’ll become the ultimate victim having to make up something so outrageous because college and professional sports don’t accept gay players. He’ll get the support of the gay community and will be the first ever openly gay NFL player."
I suggested option c earlier in this thread as well. Even if he's not gay, his best move from a PR standpoint would be to say he is. Suddenly he'd go from being a liar to being a victim and a hero.

If that's the case I'd cross him off my draft board if I was an NFL team. He's got some serious 'splaining to do.

If he is not gay he should not cover up a lie with another lie. If he says he is gay and gets caught with a woman at any point in his career... I can only imagine what people would say, especially folks from the gay community.

Covering up a lie with an even bigger one, yeah not the best course of action.

Why? He didn't commit a crime or anything. Although he played like crap against Bama he could be a good potential replacement for Fletch.

Depends on how deep the rabbit hole goes, but I could see teams having serious trust issues with the kid and questions about his decision making and overall character. He's not undraftable, but again depending on how deep this thing goes I think it could be enough of a red flag for some teams to cross him off their board.

Claiming to be gay while not would be the worst career move he could make.

Agreed, and one thing I heard on the radio this morning was that a people felt like he would be slightly over-drafted* based on his intangibles like leadership character, and now that pretty much goes out the window.

*I don't watch a ton of college football so I can't say for certain this is really the case, just saying what I heard.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft Prospects

what is his specialty? does he do anything particularly well?

i'm telling you, he's a derek smith type at best:
career may last close to a decade
career may include plenty of starts
career may not include any pro bowls
should probably do better than smith's 13.5 career sacks / 4 career ints / 3 career forced fumbles
