He did get suspended. He did have off the field issues. I think all of that gave scouts no reason to put positives in reports on him. Most think he isn't fast or athletic. I couldnt disagree more. He's shown he can be a disruptive SS. From most of the Georgia games I had a chance to see he always seemed to make plays. Big hit, FF, or tone setting tackle. Now, IM NOT HATING ON WHITNER, but If I am not mistaken no defensive back allowed more TDs then Whitner. Whether 1on1 or in multiple coverages. It wouldnt hurt to begin taking chances on guys who can be gems.
