A consensus first-day talent, he nonetheless absorbed hit after hit. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Lacks quickness, consistency, and intensity,Ã¢â‚¬ opined draft expert Joel Buchsbaum. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Can be a non-factor,Ã¢â‚¬ said Pro Football Weekly. Ã¢â‚¬Å“An enigmatic prospect,Ã¢â‚¬ wrote ESPNÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mel Kiper. But the comment that bothered Warren most came from the Sporting News, which wondered if cashing in would cause him to cash out. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We fear his effort will slip once he starts collecting a paycheck,Ã¢â‚¬ the weekly wrote. The words rankle Warren to this day. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the most degrading thing anyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ever said about me,Ã¢â‚¬ he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I love this game and I always have since second grade. Anybody who said that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know me and doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know anybody that knows me.Ã¢â‚¬ Warren neednÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worry, because each day he spends in the NFL makes those words look more foolish. One of three first-round picks on the teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s defensive line, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on the verge of a breakout season. He recorded a game-winning safety in the opener against the Buffalo Bills, then made a career-high 11 tackles against the New York Jets last week. Somewhat overshadowed by perennial All-Pro defensive end Richard Seymour and touted nose tackle Vince Wilfork, Warren may soon be a household name himself.
