Each year? I believed he missed three games in the ONE YEAR he attended OSU. That can happen to anyone. You're insane if you don't think Clarette would have gone in the first round after that year. He would have been the first back taken without question.

bigredskinfan: We don't have a #2, and even if we did I wouldn't take him. I like Clarett, but we have other needs. If he falls to the 5th, 6th, etc rounds then I feel he is more than worth the pick. If he doesn't, it's not a big deal because we have Portis. Betts is far from a capable backup, in my mind. As much time as he spends injured I don't think we can rely on him.

Don't let your personal feelings diminish Clarett's play. He's a beast of a back and tore up a very talented Miami defense. The same defense that had 10? first round picks only two years later.

you're right about the years- he did only play one season... but again, he wouldn't have been the first back taken. he wouldn't have even gone in the first round of the draft. that's not personal feelings, that's fact. the pro scouts said he would have gone in the third round, second round would have been a miraculous flyer. if you do some research, you'll see the same thing. nearly every scout said he was not physically ready for the nfl after his frosh year- you can say all you want about me being insane, but that's what the word was after his first year.

i'm almost certain mcgahee gets taken by the bills regardless of clarett's presence in the draft and larry johnson definitely gets selected before him.

just to add: i'm not even sure what kind of shape clarett is in nowadays- he may even turn out to be a pretty good back in the league... but he was not ready in '03 and he wasn't going to be drafted in the first round back then (according to the scouts/experts anyway).
