Okay, I know someone broached this subject before, and cause of the kid's off the field problems I kinda poo-pooed it, but it appears he has been really impressive at the combine. Had the 2nd most velocity on his passes, and was one of the most accurate. Number two in long jump and vertical jump too. I am kinda feeling like a 3rd round pick wouldn't be a waste on this kid if we don't get someone before then.

One of the top sleepers in this draft is former Florida State quarterback Adrian McPherson, who honed his skills in the Arena Football League after being forced out of the Seminoles' football program because of off-field issues. McPherson displayed nice velocity, posting the second fastest timed passes at the Combine with a speed of 57.2mph. He also displayed his athletic ability by posting second best among all quarterbacks in the broad jump and vertical jump while finishing fourth in the shuttle and fifth in the 40. However, it was his arm strength and accuracy that had scouts buzzing.

Gambling on college football and floating bad checks.

Yes it was. Not too bad. We dohave a casino down the street from the dome though. But I can live with that, It wasn\'t drugs or anything, and with all the steroid stuff and such coming out, I am looking at gambling as a lesser evil, whereas a few months ago the guy\'s character totally turned me off of him. I think he is worth a shot. I wouldn\'t mind spending a 3rd on a guy who will sit the pine for a year or two and may very well end up being one of the better QBs to come out of the draft.

Tomb, I doubt he will have to do either with an NFL salary, hopefully. They were impressed with him at the combine. That\'s why I said maybe a 3rd on him. Nothing drastic. And depending on what we get for Howard, we may have the extra pick to spend.

So, Tomb, would you place gambling somewhere between beating your wife and dope smoking?
I floated bad checks in college too. I hope none of my fans are reading this.

Yea I posted a whole article about him a while back... it was a pretty good read if someone is willing to go search for it. It\'s titled in his name.

Anyways, I\'m all for drafting a qb period. He seems like a good prospect and he\'s basically been cleaning up his act in the AFL. No problems that have been publicized since he\'s been there. Maybe he matured and maybe we should take a chance on this guy. He might be a diamond in the rough and it might also light a fire under AB\'s you know what.

Adrian + Burboun Street + boobie bars + casino = diaster.

Since I\'m a positive guy, I say go for it and take our chances. Wait nevermind we have Saints management. He\'s going to be screwed if he comes over here. :casstet:

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Not at all....I engage in a little recreational gambling myself from time to time. I would actually like to see McPherson in the Black and Gold, just as long as we don\'t reach for him. He can be had in the 3rd or 4th.

This draft forcast is way too cloudy right now though....then again isn\'t it always cloudy when it comes to this team? When\'s the last time we picked the guy in the first round that we expected to pick?

Well, damn, my draft stock is dropping faster than John Chaney\'s morals.

EDIT: Would the answer be Ricky Williams?
