    Nope, valid point. Not too soon from the second judge.

    What has it been 12-14 years since Scotty tried to take down the female cop while naked?

    Combine this moronic act with getting tossed from the bowl game and he deserves a serious slide.

    How STUPID.

    A mistake is when you try to do the right thing and fail. Idiocy is when you try to do the wrong thing and succeed.

    Dennard was not going to even get close to the first round. An opinion like that is severely colored by red colored glasses. I remember when many people on this board thought Carlos Polk was the best LB in the draft and would go in the first round. Mel Kiper predicted he'd go much later than that. Polk went in the 4th round.

    The only Husker who even has a chance of being drafted in the first round is David and the mock drafts I've seen recently have the Giants taking either a OT or a TE and David going in the 2nd round.

    Dennard is the 9th or 10th CB on the board. This season did nothing but reduce his draft stock. The only way he could have possibly been a first round pick is to come out last year. Crick will be drafted before Dennard but even he's not going before late second, early third unless somebody does something amazingly dumb.

    Because they think nothing bad can happen to them, it's no different than the mindset of most college kids. They also give in to peer pressure. Given that he got thrown out of the bowl game for getting in a stupid fight (anybody who punches another player wearing a helmet and shoulder pads isn't too bright) this is really going to hurt him in terms of NFL teams opinion of his character. Most NFL teams won't draft knuckleheads very high unless they're obscenely talented. Dennard is not obscenely talented in comparison to 9-10 other CBs in the draft and guys who are known knuckleheads have a tendency to do stupid things on the field and get penalties.

    I would love to have such a perfect person working for me. You know of course, that what you are saying, because you KNOW his intent, is that he intended to get into a fight last night (when you try and do the wrong thing). How about he went to a bar, expecting to have a good night, and something happened. Didn't want to have an altercation, didn't try to have an altercation, no intent to have an altercation, just got caught up in the moment, and made bad choices. A mistake. Nah, someone as perfect as you cold never see that happening, right?

    I just did a quick google.... in 2009 (probably more recent can be found, which would only add to it), the last pick in the first round received an $11.3 million contract ($6.1 million guaranteed, signing bonus). Only 5 picks later in the second round, $4.93 million ($2.15 million). Huge difference between the first and second round. Drop down to the beginning of the third round, and it's less than half that of the 5th pick of the second round. You don't have to fall far to cost yourself a ton of money.

    Heard on the radio today he was seen as a second rounder. And all I've heard lately is that his stock has been dropping...before this

Some people plain and simple should never consume alcohol. Dennard is plainly one of those people. A waste of education. Someone could have actually used the scholarship for something other than this, one would think. Maybe he can use this as a learning moment and walk away from the bottle, before he ends up penniless at forty as some do.

    Jesus people. Freak out some more. Yes, he did something stupid but "Waste of education", "Someone else could have used the schollie", "walk away from the bottle"? Please.

    Actually, the act of idiocy I'm referring to is punching a policeman in the face. No one forced him to do that. That was a spur of the moment decision that he made. What I don't know is why he thought that was a good thing to do at that moment. Quite probably the alcohol he was consuming was affecting his thought process. He may want to think twice before he consumes large, or even small, amounts of alcohol again.

    His intent doesn't matter. The fact is that I'm quite sure NFL teams have asked him about getting in to a fight on the field and getting tossed. He's got a durability question too. His stock has dropped a LOT since the end of his junior year. Yet he puts himself in a position to have something bad happen? That's just outright stupidity. Nobody focused on their future in the NFL even puts themselves in a situation like that.

    Heck, a few weeks ago I read an article about Lindsay Lohan putting herself on "house arrest" until her probation ended in a couple days. It was right after that alleged incident with a parking attendant and she didn't want to get in any more trouble and jeopardize the end of her probation. It's pretty sad that LiLo actually made a better decision than Dennard.

    The stupid act occurred much, much before that. Even if he hadn't punched the cop he still got in a fight. In today's world there's zero way that doesn't somehow end up on Twitter or Facebook and get found out by the media. Then he's got to explain it to NFL teams who already have questions about him.

    Even if another guy provoked the fight, when you have $$ on the line you're an idiot to even put yourself in a position to have somebody else who's drunk mess with you. Dennard is just lucky he didn't hurt himself and completely lose out on the chance to be a draft pick.

    The million dollar punch. Of course, I mean his UFL contract. Lets see, 4 years of high school trying to prove yourself so you can get a scholarship to college. 4 years playing for the Huskers. Pro combines...And then, one two many drinks at a bar....and now you are superman...nice punch there Dennard...still a felony...and on top of that,,,,a sober person video tapes the entire felony assault on a police officer...and turns the video over to the police...and I am sure the former nfl draft pick named Dennard will plead not guilty..even though the video shows him punching a officer in the face....maybe that crap is ok in Georgia there Dennard....but this is Nebraska...next license plate please. You would think 4 years in college would teach a person SOMETHING...like you can't assault a police officer....
