View Full Version : Jason Shirley Question

Anybody know what happened to Jason Shirley, the big DT at Fresno State. I see he only played 3 games this year. Was he hurt or does he just suck? What are his chances making it in the NFL and about what round is he projected to go in? Is he any better than his former teammate Louis Leonard?

He got suspended from the team for four weeks for suspicion of DUI. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/ncaa/11/15/fresno.state.shirley.ap/

I think he could be a nice 2nd day sleeper prospect. I could see Denver taking a flyer on him due to their need for a big DT. He's supposedly a good athlete for his size too.

Yeah it'll be interesting to see how much he drops if at all.

Fresno State is full of convicts. They make USC look like a team of choir boys.

That said, Shirley is a huge athlete in a draft rather thin at the NT position.
