i don't know. i've heard a lot about injuries that kept him from going earlier in the draft. i don't see him getting enough playing time to becomre a S.O.D.
I really dont know much more than what the scouting report said about him, but he was considered 2nd-3rd rd material by a lot of people. He fell mostly because of character concerns rather than injury concerns (but he does have injury concerns too, dont get me wrong). All that being said, Scouts.com gave him a grade of 86 - how many guys after the 3rd rd had a grade that high? Sure the Lions took a chance on a project player, but I am not concerned about his health as much as his head issues. If he doesnt pan out, so what, he was drafted in the 7th rd - if he does pan out... S.O.D.
