    Sounds like he'll be going on the second day :

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/NFLDraft/Draft Extras/2008/wwhi040808.htm

    "Specifically, Talib admitted at the Combine to testing positive for marijuana three times while at the University of Kansas . . . “There is no way I’d touch (Talib),” one team told PFW. “He’s gotten into a lot of trouble, and he still does not get it.”"

    He's been rated very highly by some here. Not among my top 5 CBs however, and that's based on the way he plays the position. But now this character stuff...:(

    Exactly. I noticed some things about his game that I wasn't entirely fond of, and couldn't fully understand why some people were rating him as the top CB (or close to it) in the draft. I thought he was a top 45-50 pick, not a top 15-20 pick.

    These reported character issues (if true) should be a concern, and it might knock him out of the first day. But, some team will probably look at his size and potential, then take a chance on him.

    Edit:

    He tested positive three times, and had other issues off the field? I'll never understand some of these guys.

    I wonder if Mike Reiss wants a mulligan on his mock draft pick.

    I agree here -- some team will take a chance. Not our problem though.

    Cool let him slide ... that way we can draft him in the 3rd. Rivers or Gholston in the First Round.

    If this was last year, I'd be thinking Bengals.

    Since it is a whole new ballgame, I'm thinking Raiders.
