Well, we dont know if the feeling is mutual. If anything, it might sway a team to not draft him. He is already a "head case" to some, so if he only wants to play for one team, his draft value to others might not be that great. However, I think the Jets will take him in the 2nd/3rd (if they do not acquire ivory from the saints).
I think his talent grade is quite high. top of the 2nd ish. He just has "character concerns", so most project him in the 3-4 range.
I dont think the size is an issue (they have different running styles), he has the potential to be a great player, period. Lynch, Turbin, michael is an embarrassment of riches IMO. We have percy that can be that smaller "change of pace" guy, if we even deem that important.
