Alfonzo Dennard: Former Huskers Defensive Back Found Guilty

New, 16 comments
Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Alfonzo Dennard was once considered a first or second-round NFL draft pick. Teams wouldn't throw at the former Nebraska starting cornerback just to play it safe. Those days likely seem a distant memory to him now.

A then-alleged altercation with a police officer all of five days before the draft was held has caused him nothing but grief ever since.

An eventual seventh round pick by the New England Patriots, Dennard was found not guilty of a third degree assault charge, but found guilty of assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.

Due to the assault verdict being a felony, Dennard faces up to six years in prison.

There has been no comment by the Patriots as of yet, but it's hard to imagine anything positive coming out of this in regards to Dennard's future with the franchise.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 11.
