View Full Version : Article: Troubled players slip in NFL draft

The Cincinnati Bengals could use a cornerback, although after being subject to ridicule for having nine players arrested last season they almost surely will pass on UNLV's Eric Wright. For public relations reasons, if nothing else.

That doesn't necessarily apply to the other 31 NFL teams.

So Wright and Miami safety Brandon Meriweather, both of whom have had trouble in their backgrounds, could be first-round picks in Saturday's NFL draft - even though commissioner Roger Goodell's suspensions of Adam (Pacman) Jones for a year and Chris Henry for eight games have highlighted how strongly the new boss feels about off-field transgressions.


So how important will the "Character Factor" be this weekend? Will it really affect the draft status of the elite 25 or 30 players projected for 1st round status?

Do you think it will have any bearing on the Dolphin's draft considering our new coach and current personnel manager?

I know what the answer would be if Jimmie Johnson was still here....
