Bad analogy..another talent vs. work ethic. Nobody questioned whether Alshon was good enough to be a 1, people questioned his work ethic. Lots of people had AJ1 as a top 10 and then Alshon got too big his Jr. year, that's a fact. He dropped weight before the draft but the damage was already done. These people are looking at this from an NFL executive standpoint. Is this dude talented? Yes. Am I concerned with his work ethic and drive? Yes. So teams have to weigh that out. And evidently Mayock must not have been that far off seeing as how Alshon..yanno..didn't go in the 1st round.
