At what point does the reward become worth the risk? Would rather roll the dice on him than bring in another special teamer.

I know nothing about him. What's his deal?

I was hoping they'd take a shot and gamble with Burfict, whose talent is much higher than a 6th, with #183 but alas they finally drafted a WR.

LB Arizona State. He's extremely talented, but he has attitude and weight issues.

Going into the season he could have played his way into the first round. Instead, he decided to play like an ******* (best word I can think of to describe it) and not match it with results. He cost himself a lot of money.

He'd be a good pick in the 7th/UDFA. He is fighting for his NFL career in that situation and he has no room to be out of shape or make stupid mistakes (Personal Fouls) on the field.

You want a guy on your team who :

Ran a 5 second 40

put on 20 pounds of weight his senior year

Has been renown for starting problems

contributes personal fouls time an time again

A KID who just needs to stop smoking weed for a few months in order to become a millionaire/ professional athlete , and he can't do it.

I really wanted this when i saw him last year, But to be as unmotivated as he is already, whats giving him 600k going to do ?

I know nothing about him. What's his deal?Think Brian Cox at his worst. This guy will make some wow plays and then a stupid 15-yard penalty. Also, doesn't seem to be dedicated. Talent is there, though.

Agreed, and that's coming from an ASU fan (dear god I choose poorly).

Of course, if we draft him, the tone of this thread will change quickly :lol:

Sounds like the perfect UDFA.

With Burfict there is no reward...it's all risk.

I want him far away from our team. He will likely end up in Baltimore or New England if I had to guess.

I think in the 7th of as an UDFA the risk/reward is an excellent ratio. Jeff Ireland is all about value.

Nobody wants the kid described above. However, this point in the draft is where you can gamble. If Burfict changes his ways and matures, you've potentially landed a top 2 round talent in the 6th or 7th. If he doesn't change, you've essentially lost nothing and can cut him without much regret. 6th's and 7th's rarely stick around anyway and they don't cost much money.

I think as an UDFA the risk factor isn't really there. You have nothing to lose and a potential starter to gain.

I liked VB early on too. What a waste of talent. That said, I would sign him and give him a look.
The problem is that we could cut another guy in favor of him, and then they guy will get into trouble or smoke a mary jane and get suspended.
He will add unnecessary drama if he cannot get his shet together.

Even Brandon Marshall would pass on him
