I don't think character is an issue. Seems just like a case of a young guy being tempted by some luxuries he couldn't afford. Sure he shouldn't have taken agent bribes, but beyond being a stupid decision on his part, it is understandable. Certainly doesn't mean he's a bad kid. If anything, I'd think he'd learned his lesson.
Well, all teams should do their due diligence before drafting a guy, so I would assume that if the 9ers do take him he will have dispelled any qualms they have. Someone complained about your speculation, but anything we say now is speculation...kind of like almost everything on these threads! So I agree that, for us, it's not a concern because it won't happen unless he has been cleared by the brain trust.
