Weird. I wonder if this has anything to do with him being questioned about his ex girlfriend's murder. (Not a suspect)

Exactly what this about, they've been talking on NFL Network that he isn't being interviewed by police until after the draft, And alot of teams find him undraftable if his name isn't cleared first.

Schefter said this morning people are telling him that he may go undrafted.

No one is going to pick him until this is settled. He may not be involved, but the media said OJ wasn't a suspect at first, same for Hernandez and probably Carruth. They want to question you but you aren't a suspect. Sometimes you are sometimes not.

Strange situation. This would be like a nightmare if he truly had nothing to do with his ex-girlfriend's death. The Supplemental draft seems weird in that you would lose a pick in next year's draft if you bid for him. Atlanta is actually eligible to be in the first bidding group since we won 6 or fewer games. We could bid a 2nd rounder and get him for the price of a 2nd rounder in 2016.

Can you say PR Nightmare?

Until he's cleared he could end up being the alleged pregnant girl-friend killer... Just think of the press conferences.

Dude is kryptonite...

that is a very smart move. He gets his name cleared, he is a round 2 supplemental pick. If he is in the draft tonight, he has a chance of going undrafted.

But he'd also be a free agent with a 1st round grade... of course he probably won't fit into teams rookie pools after the draft...

Actually I take that back... someone will take him with a throw away pick in the 7th round...

He also hasn't spoken to police yet. (as of this morning) He's got to get his legal ducks in a row before any NFL team will touch him and it seems like his agent and his lawyers are trying to do the right thing. If he's innocent he'll make back the money in the long run. If he's guilty one of 32 teams isn't going to get horribly burned by drafting him. Bad situation but after Ray Carruth and A.Hernandez it's not worth the risk.

It has everything to do with that. He was going to be a first round pick before that.

If he's truly not a suspect, I hate this for him, this will literally cost him millions of dollars.
