I want him too, diehardskin. I don't wanna trade up in the first round to get him. However if he falls to a late round pick talk about bang for your buck.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

the problem is everyone knows his name now, so bang for your buck is out the window if an excitable owners jumps to early... if this kid wasn't on the news for the last two years he'd just be another RB with a bad time and would go undrafted... at least he's got the PR side of football nailed...

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

Yeah That Guy. If scouts were stupid enough to completely disregard him being one of the best freshman college running backs anyone has ever seen. They might forget about him. The fact of the matter is he has instincts and added a lot of bulk before the combine to become a larger type back. That slowed him down a bit. Clarett is a great back - I'm guessing you didn't watch Ohio state in that championship year.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

while Clarret is a talented rb, he still has been heavily overhyped especially given the fact that he only played around 11 games I believe of one season of college football 2 YEARS AGO!! I wonder though how much press he would have gotten if THE Ohio State wasn't in the running and eventually won the National Championship that year he played.

true but I'm willing to bet the majority of coaches and owners would prefer not having a player in the public spotlight for similar lapses in judgement. I really only see a couple teams seriously being willing to spend a mid to late round pick on him, but then again I was suprised as hell that mcgahee went in the first round 2 years ago even though I knew if he got back to full strength he'd be a heck of a back. I mean this is a sport after all and the bottom line for a vast majority of the league boils down to potential.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

that was years ago, he hasn't done anything worthwhile since... and his attitude continues to be not that great. We'll see how he does i'm sure, but i dont really see him putting up big numbers in the next two years...

Sounds like some reasonable explanations to me, he bulked up too much citing how scouts were drooling over Greg Jones last year, he may have overtrained, etc.
This explains everything...basically he had bad advisers up until at least January of this year. As an UFA he is a beast of a player. That being said UFAs basically suck for the most part so being a beast among them means you might be a serviceable player at some point in your career. If his attitude shapes up and he is able to get his bulk under control and someone convinces him he shouldn't be allowed to make any decisions greater than what he has for dinner then he may be a quality UFA. I wouldn't waste a draft pick on him.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

He will go undrafted. And it's a long road to making a roster spot. Teams cannot afford to be that patient with him. Maybe a former USC coach (now in the NFL) will give him a chance. It seems like he deserves it. But you really can't excuse him for being that much out of shape. Mike Williams isn't.

Bosshog - he wasn't "out of shape" as people like to say. Prolem is he was too much in shape. Look at a picture, Clarett is RIPPED but he had a bad 40 time.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

Yeah I saw that picture too, the man is enormous. I'll go ahead and drop the bombshell and say that if he stayed THAT big and could still run through holes, I'd love to have him as a 3rd down back if he dropped far in the draft (which won't happen).

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

With all that time off....you would think he would have had the decency to hire a SPEED COACH. I bet if he hired a speed coach to work out with for a couple months his time would have been WAYYYY better.

Someone will take him in the 6th or 7th rounds. I read somewhere that the Cards and Raiders are looking to take him around that time

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

I don't wanna see him with norv. He needs a coach who he can rely on to be there and be strong with him. Denny Green could do him well, but Joe Gibbs would be the best!

Yes, he definitely needs someone who builds character as WELL as talent.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

Hey I posted Canton, but probally all-pro at least. The man has talent!!! No one can take that away from him. He is the only reason why the Ohio State won a championship. Now I know he has some issues, but if he gets a good coach like Dennis Green I really think he could do something. I know I'm CRAZY!!! WOOOHOOO

Skin: If he gets put in the right situation he could be an amazing back. Just hope he is able to find said system that's not the Giants, Eagles, or Cowboys.
