  • Adarius Bowman Arrested

    DRAFT PROSPECT BOWMAN ARRESTED
    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 2, 2008, 6:05 p.m.

    Former Oklahoma State wide receiver Adarius Bowman, who is expected to be a mid-round draft pick, has been arrested and charged with simple possession of marijuana near his hometown of Chattanooga.

    The Associated Press reports that Bowman was arrested Tuesday night and released on $500 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.

    This is the second marijuana-related incident for Bowman, who transferred to Oklahoma State after North Carolina dismissed him as a result of a citation for marijuana possession.

    In 24 games at Oklahoma State, Bowman finished fourth in school history with 127 receptions and 2,187 yards. Bowman is a good athlete who has all the physical tools to play receiver in the NFL, but this incident will cost him.

    Undrafted?

    Personally, I don't think that NFL teams care much about marijuana use unless they consider a player a serious threat to get busted by the league office.

    That said, the fact that this is the second marijuana mark on Bowman's record (the other being about 3 years ago) suggests a trend, and it doesn't help that it was during a time when Bowman should be trying to stay as straight as possible. He could easily be there in the 5th or 6th round, but I don't see him going undrafted.

      It certainly increases the possibility of going undrafted. He had already fallen to the 5th/6th area. While pot may not be the biggest deal, it does show very pure judgment on this part, and combined with the questioning of his physical capability, I wouldn't rule it out. More than likely a team takes a shot on him, but boy, his stock has tumbled hard.

        Then are people going to learn? Getting arrested in the months leading up to the Draft is never good for your draft stock and therefor your wallet.

        Maybe he just doesn't care about the money? ;)

          Why couldn't this go on the A.B thread that was already running?

          And honestly, i don't think teams care too much about smoking pot.
          i mean so long as you're not doing it during the year ala ricky williams, but
          it's just a little misdemeanor. In Texas they don't even arrest you anymore
          so long as it's less than 2oz i think.

              That is true. It's pretty cool.

                Alot of athletes smoke, but not all of them are stupid enough to get caught leading up to the draft, it shows about his character that you cant stop smoking weed for a few months at the least, and he was probably careless to even get stopped with it on him.


                He would be lucky to go in the 5th rd now, the best thing he has going for him is game film, and his 300 yard game, thats going to have to be his selling point, although he wont go undrafted, hell ill take a flier on him in the 6th for dallas if he's still there, why not take a chance at that point when most of those picks dont pan out...Id gladly take him as a late rd pick, pretty sure other teams feel the same, going undrafted is a little much.

                      Look at it this way, he was probably stressed out and so he decided to get high


                      Either way smoking mary jane shouldnt be justified especially at this point in his life.

                      7th round pick now
                      Pretty crazy since 2 months ago I couldve seen him in the 3rd round

                        Seems like a good decision on his part... Sounds like a real intelligent fella.

                            5th/6th, id take him in the late 4th if i was a team in need of a WR, at least he's not making it rain in.

                              No, actually it's because I knew if I posted this in the other thread, someone else would have seen the news elsewhere and come here to post a new thread about it, without going into that thread first to see if it was brought up. So you would've ended up with a "useless thread like this one", and it would've been even more useless with the conversation already going.


                              I don't even know why I'm bothering explaining myself, because I can't figure out why you even care. =/
