Ex-Oregon TE Colt Lyerla could be steal of NFL Draft if a team is willing to roll the dice | masslive.com Curious what people think about this guy and the chances of the Pats going after him. As a godless heathen myself I would pull the trigger (get it?) on anyone who can help us score more football TDs. But there quite possibly is a Christian Peter thing going on here with Kraft, who needs to be mindful of the brand, possibly not wanting to bring in anyone with known issues for a while. The kid says all the right things but so did Hernandez. Getting caught doing blow in a parking lot and kicked out of Oregon St. is a far cry from killing people, but this guy also said he had to move away from his home to get away from bad influences. Which I've always thought was the real problem for Hernandez, that he never got away from the bad influences and situations he grew up in. If Hernandez is drafted by the KC Chiefs he's probably sitting on a beach somewhere right now instead of in prison. Since this kid didn't grow up in NE he would likely be more insulated here. So - would you sign this kid as a FA? Would you draft him in the 7th? Personally I'd say a 4th or a 5th.
