    And then once he started playing, no one wanted him again.

    But nice story anyway.

    Yeah but I just found it interesting how coaches treated him differently than other players or maybe he just blew it out of proportion/exaggerated, but he doesn't seem like a guy who would do that.

    The guy could've been a really good player, not sure what happened.

    Thanks for posting man. This is really good.

    This part makes me laugh a little:

    But Rolle soon realized his coaches were not treating him like other players. Instead of discussing football with him, they spoke to him as if he was some kind of a curious specimen rather than a football player. "The conversation wasn't ‘Hey Myron, I like the way you got on the hash mark, backpedaled, found the receiver in a Cover 2.' It was more like ‘Myron, so how do you know President Clinton?'" a reference to a trip he took to Africa with the former president and others as part of the Clinton Global Initiative. "The coaches and general managers, they wanted to ask me about how I felt about health care in the United States right now. Going for the Rhodes, it really put a label on me that was hard to shake, and frankly I don't think that I did shake it."

    I think the year away from football really hurt him, he was a very solid Safety at FSU before being drafted.

    He was not very fast and did not have smooth hips. Could not change direction well.

    Who could have been a really good player? Myron Rolle? LOL

    No

    he stunk

    and that article is way too long to read, especially since he never played a game.

    #1 overall recruit in the nation for FSU.

    Never did anything except get talked about for how smart he was. Never laid a big hit on anyone and just caught receivers like a teddy bear. Too bad from a football perspective.

    I remember him in college and he was really good, I wonder if he ever was truly focused on the game while being here.

    He wasn't really good.
