  • Q&A with an anonymous N.F.L. scout

    http://www.realgmfootball.com/src_en...ith_the_scout/


    My Favorite Part:

    JR: So are there any players who you have found to be, shall we say, disappointing in the interview room or off-camera?

    Scout: Well I donít want to give out his name, but we talked with a kid in Indy that most everyone thinks is a real high first round pick. And he was dumber than a fencepost. We asked him about school and classes and stuff like that and he was like, enough already, Iím done with that (excrement), where is my paycheck... Another kid we had in just didnít get it. Everything was Jesus. Get him off Jesus and he might as well be a deaf-mute. Jesus wants you to answer a question without him, son. Real odd too, because his agent is Jewish (laughs).


    BJ Raji for the dumb guy maybe???

      I guessed Raji cause he was academically ineligible for his junior year, therefore not caring about grades or whatever.

        That was a very interesting read. Gotta wonder how reliable it is, but it definitely has some great insights we usually aren't privileged to.

          I believe it was either BC or his adviser that kind of flubbed some paperwork that made him ineligible. I can't really recall the story.

            Interesting read. I'd love to know who some of the unnamed players were.

              I lawl'd so hard at that ****.
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              ďWe know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. Weíve shown weíve been able to do that.Ē - Jabari Greer

                Funny stuff. I am glad to read the Britt quote so all the "he's a drama queen" ******** can stop.

                  That's legit stuff, I'm a mod over on RealGM, and Jeff Risdon is a respected figure, and he's a scout for some (unnamed) team.

                  He's always hitting us with good insider info.

                    Nah, I wouldn't think Raji....

                    Vontae Davis maybe? Unless it's real obvious and it's Andre Smith, Davis is my 2nd pick for who the dumb guy was.

                        Doubt it's Davis...
                        Like this year, the (Vontae) Davis kid from Illinois. Heís had some problems but you can tell by talking to him and looking him in the eye that he gets it now.
                        or Smith...
                        You know, he is a naÔve young man who made some dumb choices. First thing I would tell him is to fire his agent and get with someone more reputable. You know, someone who can do some damage control and earn some trust back in his corner. The kid is a monster on the field, just a beast. Heís probably the best run blocker Iíve ever seen coming out of college. But he has got to prove he learns from his mistakes
                        I wonder who?

                          Britt is supposed to hit the weight room harder? He did 23 reps...more than Andre Smith.

                              Raji is not an idiot, he's actually pretty smart. BC duffed it with his credits and he was ineligible for last year, it was not his academic performance that held him back.
