Nolan Nawrocki at PFW is making quite a name for himself as a draft analysts willing to openly hammer, not just question, the character/mindset of several top prospects. After getting so much pub for slamming Cam Newton, Nawrocki delivers his list of the highest character and most questionable character guys in the draft. I'm not questioning the accuracy of Nawrocki's assertions, but I couldn't help but notice that all but one of the 'bad' character guys are black. Also, four of the six 'good' character guys are white, and one of those two black guys is described as "very simple, yes-sir, no-sir, small-town, country kid". The whole thing feels pretty loaded.
Nick Fairely is getting slammed all over the place these days as another Albert Hayneworth, but Paul K comes to his defense with an important distinction that's backed up by scouts: Albert was surly, but Fairley is silly. This is a good read and definitely worth your time.
