We're in the 7th, the draft's nearing its end, and as tradition there are early round prospects still on the board. Some fall because of character concerns, others fall for reasons that the average fan aren't privy to.
These players include: Seantrell Henderson, Colt Lyerla, Antonio Richardson, Brandon Coleman, Adrian Hubbard, and Christian Jones.
Idzik has demonstrated an emphasis on character - 4 of the 6 later picks were captains of their football team. Perhaps he is trying to build a culture in this organization. One of competition, of scrappiness.
Small school gems - high character guys that got little pre draft attention is certainly a way to build that culture. But when it comes to drafting late what should be the priority?
Haven't we seen recently high talent prospects with questionable motors fall, play with a chip on their shoulder, and produce in the NFL? Think Burfict and the Honey Badger. You could argue that because they fell that they played harder for the teams that took a gamble on them.
So what's the formula? Should we be looking for Victor Cruz's or Vontaze Burficts?
