When they actually have the papers signed. Nothing is official until the papers are filed.

Re: Official UDFA Signing Thread

Potentially, a couple more (reportedly). I have no official confirmation yet. Just getting text messages

OT Shannon Boatman (Florida State)

OT Devin Clark (New Mexico

Not the highest marks (according just to the links I posted)

I wouldn't have minded us signing him, but I know that he had trouble in the past and turned it around, but you never know when he might turn back into a troublemaker, or he could have just been acting good until the draft, hoping someone would take a chance on him.

Outside The Lines: Marcus Dixon - ESPN Video

No, just treating others to the same standards and treatment CJ got. All I meant was why waist a draft pick on someone who might be in trouble with the law frequently? I would welcome him if he has his "itshay" straight and makes the team. She may have come up with the story but in the "Pro Football Weekly Pro Prospects Preview" it says he was found guilty by jury of molestation, and statutory rape. He was sentenced to 10yrs on the molestation charge. A Supreme Court overturned the charge because it was proven it was consentual but he still got a yr jail sentence for a lesser offense but had already done a yr prior to the proceedings so they gave him time served. Unless I missed something. He's a criminal. Character police won't like him. Sorry.

I wonder if he has to register with the state for his offense due to it being a sex crime?

Read this story about him, all he did was have consensual sex with a girl 3 years younger than him and they convicted him for it. I would not label him as a troublemaker for that.

3yrs younger and only 15yrs old. He should have caught another charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor...although thats a misdimeanor.

The case was about the fact that he was a black and she was white. That is the bottom line. Unless you think race and class don't have any effect in the criminal justice system. He's a good fit in a 3-4, so the Cowboys are probably a good landing spot for him, but we'll see.

Re: Official UDFA Signing Thread

Also young men who are 18 or older and have girlfriends who are under 18 need to realize they are at the mearcy of the parents of the juvenile if what ever they are doing is not approved of by the parents. Which will catch you a contributing charge. Now throw in the fact she was 3yrs younger and you have Dixon. Prime example to other young men.

He's already got his mind made up. He read it in PFW. Don't bother.

Re: Official UDFA Signing Thread

I don't think they charged him with any race charges or her? I believe he broke the law and maybe the parents used the law to their advantage but he still broke the law. I hope when you have a daughter some 18 yr old who's in college is not trying give your daughter the sausage. especially if she is only 15. There is a big difference in maturity.

I also hope you don't pass this off as no big deal when you are having to hire a lawer for your sons defense if he should be doing the same thing. I'm sure the Judicial system would love parents who think this is no big deal.
