By now, all of you know about how the 2015 NFL Draft is going to be happening soon. And the Nebraska Cornhuskers have a few folks you may have heard of that are draft eligible, perhaps sooner than later!
1. Well, it seemed like Randy Gregory was a lock to be in the Top 5 of this year’s draft before his admission that not only did he fail a drug test at the Combine, but he failed 2 more at Nebraska. How much will this affect his status going into the first round?
Obviously teams are going to be trying to figure out if Gregory has a dependency problem or just made a stupid mistake. Regardless, it will knock him in the draft, but maybe not as much as some think. Gregory has a few things in his favor. He's a very good player, obviously. But he plays at a premium position, and a lot of teams high in the draft need a pass rusher. You can argue that Washington, New York, Chicago and Atlanta all need a pass rusher, and they're all picking in the top 10. Gregory's situation helps guys like Bud Dupree of Kentucky and Vic Beasley of Clemson. But would you really take someone like Shane Ray of Missouri over Gregory? I wouldn't, even considering Gregory's issues
2. Outside of the drug test issue, what makes you most excited about Gregory as a NFL player, and what is your biggest issue with him?
