The rumor I heard back when he got kicked off the team is that he was hooked on that fake weed. That **** is basically smoking chemicals and will destroy your brain. Not sure I want a guy on the team that is hooked on that ****. If it was just regular real weed, and he couldn't keep it under control enough to not get kicked off a college team, that somehow to me, is even worse. Either way, not sure a return specialist and average corner is worth the baggage he brings with him.

The guy was a great player, but with the dude still smoking weed even after he lost everything, it tells me the guy is probably not going to get his stuff back together.

And let me say.....I don't care about the weed. I would smoke it every day if it was legal to do so lol, but when you know that the one thing you have to do to get your life back is stay off weed and you don't do it, I think it says something about this kids priorities.

So did Janoris Jenkins.

He did but this situation is different.

Janoris Jenkins made it back to another football program and played. Honey Badger didn't and any smaller school would have taken him in a heartbeat.

Again, I could see him going in the later rounds but the kid wasn't a great cover corner as much as he was a punt/kick returner.

Leaving aside the off-field issues, I wouldn't take him in the 2nd because I don't see him translating as a good CB at the NFL level.

He'd be a great return man, but I wouldn't spend a high to mid-round pick for him. At that spot, IMHO, you can get a better DB.

I agree, I don't think the dude has great NFL talent for a CB. Good enough, but not Deion Sanders or even Patrick Peterson kind of talent.

Traits that got Patrick Peterson drafted very early.

Honey Badger isn't close to being Patrick as a corner though. That's why he was drafted that early. Honey Badger is so overrated as a corner it isn't even funny. Plays too high. Guesses on a lot of routes. He was torched in the National Championship game. I mean just destroyed. Wouldn't take him until they 6th

The question was draft potential. Like Peterson, the kick return skills enhance value. Like Jenkins, the value for some team will override the personal problems, although the time out of football may hurt somewhat.

I think some chemical alterations to the brain is a positive attribute for a return man . . . BRING HIM HOME, TD!!! (In the last couple of rounds.)
