I don't think someone like Odell Thurman was dropped to the 2nd round because of arrests. Thurman just couldn't stay out of trouble with the law.
And Janoris Jenkins didn't have character concerns? I don't deny that Burfict had character concerns; however, most teams seemed willing to overlook them until his sterling performance (drills and otherwise) at the combine. He had a chance to pull a Janoris Jenkins and make teams feel at ease. He failed miserably. That's when he went from first day to not at all. Especially when he ran a 40 over 5.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
