  • Players With Great/Questionable Character

    Just wanted to post this article:

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/201...pe-nfl-success

    I agree with all the high character guys.

    I also definitely agree with Newton, Mallett, and Smith as questionable character guys.

    I'm not sure about Fairley, Taylor, and Austin because I'm not sure how much Taylor and Austin may have matured since their problems, and I'm not sure how questionable Fairley's character truly is.

            Not to start a debate but 5 of 6 of the bad character players are African American and 4 of the 6 high character players are caucasian.

              I didnt read the article but if it says Jimmy Smith has character issues then it is a bad article. This whole character issue thing is over blown. It is BS IMO.

                Are you saying it is racist the character issue thing.

                It isnt. Considering majority of players in the NFL are african american.

                The real issue is people overplay the whole situation and try to bring guys down during this process because they are straped to talk about anything. It all comes from the media.

                  Oh, I didn't think of that at all. I wasn't trying to start anything controversial. I thought you were saying because it was written by the same guy who absolutely torched Cam Newton.

                      I thought you had a valid point. They had to put Mallet on the list because he might be the biggest charachter concern of all of the guys considered to have 1st round talent, but is he really the only caucasion in the draft with character concerns? I highly doubt it.

                      It would be just as easy for them to find 4 or 5 black guys considered high character guys if they wanted to, such as Bowers, Miller, or even Cameron Jordan.

                          Which is exactly why they could have easily selected a panel of high character guys that wasn't all white.

                          At the least it was highly insensitive and ignorant.

                            This is obviously going farther than I intended. Once again, I'm not stating my personal views on the subject, just pointing it out.

                              Don't sweat it, I don't think anybody in this thread is promoting the KKK.

                              I just think the writer of the article has a bias, whether or not he's aware of it, I don't know. Sometimes we have slight biases that we're blind too.
