Buckeye shows how NOT to improve one's draft stock!

Former Ohio State Buckeyes tackle and possible NFL draft pick Alex Boone arrested, tasered after drunken outburst

Columbus- Alex Boone was stressed about his falling stock for the NFL draft, his mother, Amy, said Monday night. He was working out in the Los Angeles area, aware that how he prepared and performed over the next several months would affect the rest of his life.

He only hurt his cause.

Boone, the former All-Big Ten tackle at Ohio State and star at St. Edward, was arrested late Sunday night in Aliso Viejo, Calif., after a drunken outburst in which police allege the 6-8, 312-pounder was jumping up and down on the hoods of cars, attempted to smash the window of a tow truck and then fled police and had to be Tasered twice in order to be subdued. It was Boone's second alcohol-related arrest, following a drunken-driving conviction that followed a car accident in April 2006, after which Boone told The Plain Dealer he was done drinking.


Projected to be picked somewhere in the first three rounds a year ago, Boone's stock fell after he returned to Ohio State for his senior season. Pauline said he had Boone as a seventh-rounder or free agent before these charges, though the combine presents Boone with a chance to help himself.

Geez. I can understand stressing about draft position, but what's the worst that can happen? You only sign on for a million or a half instead of multi-millions? Seems like a pretty good worst case scenario.
