Don't know how Coffee fooled the Niners during his pre-draft contact, regarding his lack of commitment to pro football. But, I sure don't ever want to see the club waste another draft pick in such fashion.
Therefore, I dedicate this thread to the webzone compiling a list of draft-eligible players, who might fall into the Glen Coffee-like mode. These are players who might pass the "look" test, but who don't pass the "smell" or motivation tests. No, we aren't privy to the face-to-face interviews, nor can we interview the player's college coaches on this matter, but the webzone has its share of knowledgeable observers. Who are the noteworthy, potential draftees who display one or more of the following:
take plays off,
play soft on occasion,
use minor injuries as an excuse to miss practices or even games,
are rumored to lack teammate respect, display prima-dona behavior
are rumored to interview poorly,
have already developed outside business interests (music, clothes, missionary, etc)
The obvious starting point for me is the 'icon" himself, Cam Newton. Feel free to add to this list, especially if you live in a college town, where you have had the ability to observe a particular athlete throughout his college career, and where you have had the ability to hear the rumors circulating around the community.
