    If you watched college football, you would know how good clarrett is can be. He has had a big layoff and thats affecting him still but he can still get back to the form that took ohio to the fiesta bowl. There is no way you can compare Lawrence phillips a Psychopath with clarrett who just made one mistake. We all know college athletes receive improper benefits, its just that clarett got caught. He made a mistake he paid for it now get off his case

    According to D.J. Williams and Tatum Bell, we had no interest in either of those guys. Apparently, our draft strategy is to show interest in some guys, but not show interest in the guys we want to draft. That way, teams don't move right in front of us and grab the prospects we want. So even though no Broncos scouts were at Clarett's workout, Shanahan and Sundquist might be closet fans of him.

    He was a great player on the field when he played. Speed was never his thing, power was. He's similar to Terrell Davis in many ways. Let's see how he does in the pros before we slam him. We could use a powerback to replace Mike Anderson in the near future, we could very well draft Clarett in the 6th round.
    Clarett excelled on the use of his uncanny vision and the ability to see holes forming before they were there. He was very patient and selective, similar to the way McAlister runs, but he lacks the Duece's speed and recieving ability. Like McAlister, he will have a lot of gains of zero to two yards, but will pick up large chunks because of his vision. That said, he is still facing an uphill battle to succeed in this league. He faces unrealistic expectations, severe scrutiny, and has a serious issue in dealing with early success or failure, due to his immaturity. Had his saga not began with so much hype, he likely would have entered the draft as a junior this year, and would be a first-second round selection. Unfortuneatly he lacked the support and leadership to stay on track.

    By the way, Lawrence Phillips is a bad comparison, in that the option offense clouds the way running backs are evaluated for the pro game. Ahman Green made it, but many a talented running back have rolled through Lincoln, only to find the NFL game tough going, or not even calling at all.

    Rugby.. I see what your saying. I'm just saying that Lawrence thought he was the sh*t and king of all football. Maurice has the same attitude. Clarett's workout was horrible. He ran a 4.6 the 1st time and a 4.7 the 2nd time in the 40 yard. The scout's were quoted as saying he looked tired and slow his entire workout.

    Clarett had a terrible 40 time but to be fair how long of a layoff did this guy have? Wasn't it something like a year or so?

    He was just hyped because he's an idiot who thinks he's so great he can come out of High School and play. Tenth of a second isn't dropping considerably.

    i agree, he still is to slow for a rb, even at ohio state he was slow, i never saw anything special with this kid

    i have no freakin clue why he was ever highly touted, i mena he barely played 3/4 of his frosh year, he is injury prone

    We'll know whether he has changed his attitude based on how he reacts when a team tries to put him at fullback.
