Can't really blame him for leaving.

wat ever team winds up getting him i would call it a steal. Because physically he has so much potential and since his stock is prob down, a team could get him a lot later than they would have otherwise

I'm going to be very interested in two things concerning Urrutia come combine time. One, what's his 40 yard dash time going to be? I think he's a long strider but will probably be a 4.55 guy. I also want to see his weight. He's been reported at 230 lbs but I wouldn't be shocked if he weighs in closer to 240. With that said I think a move to TE could be in the cards for Mario

Edit: A reputable scouting site has his 40 time around 4.64

Or he could be another Mike Williams.

Late 2nd/Early 3rd unless he wows at the Combine

Could be a Kelley Washington type.

I think 3rd or 4th round with an outside shot at round two.

turf toe is very difficult to get over completely. sometimes it sticks with a player forever. id say early rd 4.

Thats a guy the Jets need!! We need that kind of WR, 6-6!! Bring on the height to our team!!

barring a super showing at the combine, eh'll probably be a mid round guy. I he can hit around a 4.5 or so in the 40 and have a few great workouts, he could be a 2nd/3rd rounder easy.

the cardinals have a pretty good backup waiting in the wings, hunter cantwell, so he wouldnt have been in a bad situation next year but he still made the better decision. scouts will love his size though his production doesnt really open up any eyes. i got him pegged as a 3rd rounder with the chance to move up into the second with solid workouts and an overall great offseason including the combine come february.

Good move I guess. His stock isn't going to get any higher.

No one has mentioned that Mario is a head case and very immature. I've seen him lose it a number of times. Probably should have stayed another year.

WW85, I was just gonna mention that..He's had games where he got multiple personal foul calls on him...almost consecutively at times. With that said, I don't think he's anywhere near a guy like a Chris Henry..but he does need to be under more control when he's on the field.

Urrutia's biggest asset is that he is incredible at going up for the ball...he knows how to use his size, and he plays much faster than his time would indicate

You're mixing up different types of characters. Henry is a mess off-the-field, but a beast when he's on it. Urrutia loses it on the field, he's a head case like previously mentioned. I'd take a guy with off-field character problems than on field.

He won't crack 4.6

He doesn't look near TE size.

Also, he might not time great in the 40-yard dash but he isn't a bad deep threat and doesn't look like he gets caught from behind.

I compare him to a slower, less explosive Plaxico Burress

He said he chose to go pro to be able to provide for his 16 month old son

Henry did the same same kind of things on the field...I remember one game, Henry got 2 personal foul calls...I think once for yelling at a fan or something, and the other for screaming at a ref before being ejected...

Urrutia doesn't have any kind of off-field problems...and I would never, ever take a guy with off-field troubles, especially arrests, over a guy who gets a little too heated during a game...no way..

It's all a matter of personal preference, but as a coach I'd have no problem having a player who gets a couple DUIs off the field but plays his ass of on it, like Jared Allen. Guys like TO, on the other hand, who run their mouths off in the locker room, pout on the field and have concentration problems, are not players I'd ever put up with, no matter what they're like off of it. Last year people kept saying how Brandon Meriweather had character issues because of the fight and the gun charges, but on the field all he cares about is winning. That's what matters. The Pats recognized this and took him in the first, and everyone said they reached on a locker room cancer. Football character>off-field problems.

I guess I didn't know that about Henry. Bad example.

So how does he compare to the other giant WRs with questionable deep speed? Guys like Sweed, Kelly, Bowman, Monk, etc.

Some of those guys are more in the 6-3, 6-4 range but they're all big WRs, dont think he's in that class, not sure about Monk.

He won't crack 4.6

In that case, I'd say definitely 3rd-4th round.
