The reality is all future NFL players are risks. I would like to see a list of players who were drafted in the first round that are starters versus players who were not drafted at all and are currently starting. Or even drafted in the later rounds.

Whether Percy makes it or not, I could care less. All college students are risk. Heck, Percy has just as much of a chance of being a stud as Matt Stafford does. At the same time, they can both be HUGE busts.

He's going to be a wash out like every other UF WR to go to the NFL. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Just another example of why Urban Myer will do anything to win. For Percy to be so dumb that he can't quit for three weeks so he can collect a multimillion dollar check is sad. I wonder how many test Harvin failed at UF. Or do they even test for that there? Probably not since there are no rules for that team except for worship Teebone.

Now this sounds a little more like the guy that got banned form all high school sports in his state. But then in three years at UF NOT A WORD about his character, and now on the eve of the draft suddenly his character is an issue again, based on his behavior at UF. So how did Harvin survive three years there and stay out of the papers? Either landing in Hogtown renders players suddenly unlike themselves, or it's so insular and protected by local officials and alumni, including in the press, that you can have a questionable character guy like Harvin skate right through. I mean SUDDENLY he's a bad character guy?
And Meyer's response doesn't deal with his character at all beyond being competitive. "He's a good football player" is basically Meyer's response to character questions.

More evidence of the corruption and cheating going on in Gainesville and being perpetrated by Herbman Meyer. Harvin was in trouble in high school, in trouble as soon as he leaves Gainesville but somehow was a choirboy while in Gainesville. Herbman Liar makes sure to keep failed drug tests, team fights and all sorts of other fraud out of the paper. I say the death penalty should be imposed on uf and the cheating herbman.

They should strip Urbie for any wins for harboring this criminal. I mean after all, the coaches always know what their players are doing......

There is no evidence of any corruption at UF. You idiots are just Gator Haters. Of course, Harvin was no choir boy in high school and made a big mistake prior to the combine that costs him a few bucks on draft day. It kills me when you retards can always criticize someone else when you are nowhere near or even close to being perfect yourselves. So,stop rooting for the sorry programs like UCF and the other scrubs and get on the band wagon. Go Gators....
