    I do not want. Ever. You can get attitude from people like Pollard who bring a "thug" like mentality, i.e. hustle hard and hit harder, without all the drama that comes with it.

    VY, KB, PAC, ect are individuals who I absolutely want to stay away from.

    Look at the Browns who used 2 straight 2nd rd picks on WRs with character issues. Greg Little who had 93 unpaid parking tickets at UNC and was suspended a year there. After 3 seasons of low level performance they had to release him. He's lazy and stupid.

    Gordon arguably the best Wr in the league can't keep his mouth off the ganja pipe.

    Great picks if you looked at talent only but character made them bad picks.

    It is interesting that the Browns in 2 straight years would draft WRs who didn't even play college fotbal the year before due t suspensions. Gordon was completely kicked off the Baylor football team so why use a 2nd rd supplemental pick on him?

    If other players with 1st rd ability can fall to the back of the draft or even out of the draft why would a team use 2nd rd picks on guys like that?
