Actually letting them go back to college makes a lot of sense. As for not being drafted. A short slow CB is not in demand. 5'9" with a 4.69 40. That's a 4.7 40 yd dash. Possession receivers could burn him deep. I have heard of big 4.6 CB's but not small 4.7 CB's. Add to that all the character flags and I wonder why anyone thought he would be drafted.
I don't know if I would want to bring him in. We would have to cut a player to make room. I don't see a future for a short slow CB on our team even without the red flags and those red flags make it a absolute no.
Track speed does not equal playing speed. A guy can run a bad 40 but to me, Hampton looks to be around the same playing speed as a guy like Joyner.
