    I had heard that this guy was not a high character pick, but I didn't know any specifics-guess this counts. Wasn't sure why the Pats passed him over but this is probably a strong indication.

    He should be team captain.

    The guy was repeatedly suspended and eventually expelled from South Carolina. He has failed multiple drug tests. This guy is a powder keg that could potentially explode all over the Jets.

    I think this guy to succeed at the NFL needs a disciplinarian who is going to keep his nose clean. I think Ryan's "let's have fun style" might enable his bad behavior.

    Some players that were drafted already beat these type of charges. Take Phil Taylor. He defaced a kid a Penn State. He got off.

    I bet there are several picks that have the same history as Ellis. Some of these guys are just goons.

    Facing a jury trial for an assault for breaking someone's jaw. Yeah I see why the Pats passed on this kid. I wasn't aware of this particular charge when I had him on my draft board previously.

    Well, these charges are only one incident in Ellis' dubious college career. This happened after he was thrown out of South Carolina for repeated violations.

    I head you. I don't know about Taylor getting in trouble again at Baylor, but he had two different incidents at PSU. One that was pretty vile where he viciously rammed a kids head repeatedly into a stone counter, then kicked him hard in the head when the kid dropped to the ground. The kid was all of 5'8", a regular student, and hanging out with friends in his off-campus apartment. Taylor was going after someone else and chose the wrong apartment to break into and do his damage. He was then thrown out of his school later for getting involved in a melee at a fraternity party at the student union. A football player said that his cell phone had been stolen, so several players there including Taylor went bonkers.

    Here is a quote from a JI board moderator:

    If he does that to Tom Brady I'll have a Kenrick Ellis statue errected outside the New Meadowlands Stadium

    Seems like Ellis is a perfect fit for Jets fans.

    Oh, and they a have a large thread going on there on the Patriots draft.[​IMG]

    Ellis is a massive mountain of athletic talent with every possible red flag draped over him:

    - In the coach's doghouse at South Carolina for being overweight and out of shape

    - Suspended at South Carolina for drug violations (and reportedly academic issues)

    - Continuing violations led to him being kicked off the South Carolina team

    - Transferred to Hampton

    - Arrested for assault

    - Suspended at Hampton

    The Jets knew what they were getting into but presumably considered it worth the risk at that stage of the draft.

    Late 3rd round is for risk taking on talent that's dropped. That said, this guy is so far over the redline that I'm glad we didn't pick him despite not being thrilled at all with our later picks.

    he got attacked by a man with a bat, and broke the guys nose.

    he also had other **** he did, but what made me like the kid was that, his mother had a heart attack, and ever since then he has made a 180 in his life.

    complete bullcrap...the "man" was a 5'8" 140 pound dweeb..and your bat reference is an OUTRIGHT LIE....here...read what Ellis himself said today...and stop printing your weasely lies on this board...

    New York Jets News | NFL Football - LockerPulse

    When asked specifically what happened at the University of South Carolina, which dismissed him after his freshman year, he said. “I thought I was somebody I wasn’t. I was very young and immature. I was hanging out with a bad crowd.”

    calm down. i could give a **** what you think. im not coming here to cover up for the kid. the bat reference is not a lie actually, and he was defending a female when he beat the hell out of the dude with the bat.

    the "bat" is a made up story by a JI liar...just like the "it's not Rex in the video!!!" lies...did you READ what the kid said? Do you seriously consider going on trial facing 20 years is "aww...he was just protecting his girlfriend from some crazy short guy...and some guy at JI said he had a bat so it must be true...so beating the crap out of a guy half his size and then stomping him into the hospital for a week is just normal good natured fun.."...typical lying Rat fan...what's next, Westhoff was right, the Patriots were responsible for Alosi? She's not underage, 17 is plenty old enough?

    Let's not be overly righteous about 3rd round picks who find themselves on the wrong side of the law shall we?

    He would fit perfectly on JI. A board full of despicable human beings as far as I'm concerned. No coincidence that is was started by a former Patsfans.com Jet Fan troll with all the class of Ellis himself. That whole board can **** my ****.
