Hopkins, Harrison deny trashing room at Combine

We interrupt the ongoing coverage of the 2013 regular-season schedule to continue our coverage of the case of the trashed Scouting Combine hotel room.

One of the players staying in the room, receiver DeAndre Hopkins, denies any involvement in the trashing of the room.

“Luckily, thank God, my agent got my flight booked early or it really would’ve been questionable if I did [it] or not,” Hopkins told  “My agent got my flight booked early, he told me hurry up.

“I got done before Mark Harrison, so I was already packed.  I already took a shower and packed and everything.  Mark came in and we spoke for at least 20 minutes about the Combine.  Then the bellman came in and helped me get my bags out.  And I left.  That’s honestly all I can say. . . .

“I say check the cameras, that’s the best way that you’re going to get the answer.  Check the cameras and check the timing of everything.”

As for Harrison, the Rutgers has yet to be quoted but his “camp” told Albert Breer of NFL Network that Harrison was not involved.

“I had a couple teams at Pro Day that asked me,” Rutgers coach Kyle Flood told Breer. “My response was that incident would be so out of character, I can’t even fathom that.”

As we suggested earlier, other players could have made the mess.  Absent cameras inside the room, it’ll be impossible to get to the truth.

Besides, we’re still having trouble figuring out how it all matters.  Will someone really pass on one of these guys because they pooped on the floor?

    What are they going to say? “Yeah it was us, we smeared our feces all over the wall” Just two idiots.

    it did didnt hurt Najeh Davenport’s career

    Nope – just hire extra maids for cheap, especially the southern teams close to the border

  4. moerawn says: Apr 18, 2013 10:46 PM

    Of course not. Players routinely poop on the floor.

  5. hpeters77 says: Apr 18, 2013 10:49 PM

    Good thing he got an early flight so he can poop on the plane

  6. jasndc75 says: Apr 18, 2013 10:49 PM

    Good job Finleye, Davenport was the first thing I thought of when I read this.

  7. nobreak1269 says: Apr 18, 2013 10:49 PM

    Um…YES-I WOULD PASS on ANY player that POOPS on the floor!! GROSS!!! You are OFF MY DRAFT LIST Harrison!! Baby need diaper?

  8. kevinwi says: Apr 18, 2013 10:52 PM

    Well, if the Bellman came up and helped Hopkins with the bags, then he is cleared by employee witness. End of story.

    If you haven’t dumped all over a hotel room, have you really lived life?

  10. operwapitsai says: Apr 18, 2013 10:59 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHA that last sentence really got me:)

  11. tedstheman says: Apr 18, 2013 11:06 PM

    Lie number …the agent doesn’t book combine flight. The combine does

  12. raiderspy1 says: Apr 18, 2013 11:08 PM

    That feces is DNA. Who is going to bag the poop.

  13. rg3isagodamonginsects says: Apr 18, 2013 11:11 PM

    It’s not even necessarily how the feces and urine got on the wall. We’ve all had nights where, let’s just say things get a little out of hand because you drink too much. It’s the fact that they’re at the most important interview of their lives, and they possibly black out and don’t even bother cleaning it up in the morning and leave it to the cleaners? Not a care for other human beings. Scum. Regardless of how the room got so dirty, it’s common courtesy to at least attempt to clean up after yourselves, or whomever you brought into the room.

  14. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 18, 2013 11:13 PM

    Unfortunately hotel custodians tampered with the evidence before a conclusive DNA sample could be taken.

  15. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 18, 2013 11:14 PM

    As a service to the public maybe you could let us know what the room number was.

  16. ad2k13 says: Apr 18, 2013 11:21 PM

    The Packers should take a flyer on either one of these guys. If one of them wiped their feces on the walls at Lambeau, they’d have all kinds of fake ass “shareholders” trying to outbid each other for a piece of some stained drywall to pridefully hang above their TV, right next to their Packers “stock” certificate.

  17. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 18, 2013 11:22 PM

    “Nuk” nuked the room.

  18. ravenator says: Apr 18, 2013 11:23 PM

    Who else would it be? i suppose I’m supposed to believe its a conspiracy. What’s wrong these people? I hoped they didn’t use their bare hands when s,earring their feces everywhere.

  19. jiveturkeygobbler says: Apr 18, 2013 11:28 PM

    Pooping on the floor was not a big deal in the olden days. With so many newspaper companies nowadays either, going digital, or scaling back how many days a week they deliver….

  20. greyhawk9 says: Apr 18, 2013 11:42 PM

    wow…who does that?? that is absolutely nasty…

  21. melkipershero says: Apr 18, 2013 11:54 PM

    Honesty it matters to me. One of the most important events of their careers and they throw a party?

  22. grandpoopah says: Apr 19, 2013 12:00 AM

    It was Jimmy Page!

  23. kingpel says: Apr 19, 2013 12:08 AM

    I hope they at least left a tip.

  24. seals1 says: Apr 19, 2013 12:10 AM

    The brown flag is up with these guys

  25. dawglb says: Apr 19, 2013 12:26 AM

    It is a shame that we now live in a society that “pooping on the floor” intentionally, on someone else’s property, is seen as a minor issue. In the real world, it would be reason for not hiring someone.

  26. dvo21 says: Apr 19, 2013 12:30 AM

    Pee and poop have DNA. So if they really wanted to know did this they more than likely didn’t toss out the evidence… science is hard

  27. granadafan says: Apr 19, 2013 12:41 AM

    The media has been catfished by their PR handlers.

  28. commonsensedude says: Apr 19, 2013 12:57 AM

    I’m telling you, these guys can turn the pooping on the floor thing into the next untapped area for player product endorsements. I can imagine: “Ladies and Gentlemen, today’s Depends Undergarment ‘Go For Two’ Player of the Game is …”

  29. eaglesnd18 says: Apr 19, 2013 12:58 AM

    I would pass on them both. No one is going to want to wake up for their pregame on a Sunday with their roommate pooping in the bathroom. No one wants a part of that!

  30. whatchutalkinabouthillis says: Apr 19, 2013 1:14 AM

    @ Finleye
    Ahhhhh you beat us all to it!

  31. whatchutalkinabouthillis says: Apr 19, 2013 1:17 AM

    And why would you poop on the bathroom floor of a hotel? Have you seen the size of those things? The toilet is a foot away from you anywhere in the room.

  32. nfl4days says: Apr 19, 2013 1:22 AM

    Feces though dawg? FECES?

  33. manderxcom says: Apr 19, 2013 2:11 AM



    Someone is trying to spread rumors so these guys fall to their spot. Hopkins is definitely has a watcher in the 1st round.

  34. JSpicoli says: Apr 19, 2013 2:46 AM

    DNA testing

  35. hooterdawg says: Apr 19, 2013 3:27 AM

    Gotta wonder if there is a correlation between feces smearing and the Wonderlick score.

  36. stubbyjones says: Apr 19, 2013 4:56 AM

    maybe their room got hacked?

  37. kevingreene160sacknoHOFclub says: Apr 19, 2013 5:18 AM

    If I owned an NFL team this would count as a disqualifier.

  38. thesteelers says: Apr 19, 2013 6:18 AM

    We’ll see how this develops…

  39. jtm12180 says: Apr 19, 2013 7:12 AM

    It’s when the poop hits the fan that there’s a REAL problem!

  40. apmn says: Apr 19, 2013 8:07 AM

    They should be able to get DNA from the poop, I think.

    And no, I would not want to have anything to do with someone who poops on the floor and is over the age of four. I don’t care how well they play football.

  41. bobbyhoying says: Apr 19, 2013 8:08 AM

    Players who went to college with these guys would know if they are culpable. Scouts will check them out before someone wastes a high pick on them.

  42. dspyank2k11 says: Apr 19, 2013 8:19 AM

    ““Luckily, thank God, my agent got my flight booked early or it really would’ve been questionable if I did [it] or not,” Hopkins told “My agent got my flight booked early, he told me hurry up.”

    Hopkins agent framed Mark Harrison!!!!!!

    So dirty… sooooo dirty

  43. j4man1 says: Apr 19, 2013 9:01 AM

    It was Hopkin’s and his agent, that’s why he booked the flight early and told him to hurry up.

  44. jimmyt says: Apr 19, 2013 9:15 AM

    Wouldn’t want them on my team and we need recievers.

  45. myeaglescantwin says: Apr 19, 2013 10:07 AM

    wait wait wait..

    i’d have to say,, if someone is classless enough to poop on a floor,,, then they don’t belong on my roster…

    just saying… i need football players,, not untrained inbred dogs.

  46. sparty0n says: Apr 19, 2013 10:14 AM

    …….and thats why I avoid staying in hotels

  47. sod61 says: Apr 19, 2013 11:28 AM

    Belicheat will be all over these guys if he thinks he can get value

  48. fanofevilempire says: Apr 19, 2013 11:49 AM

    where do you stay, in your car?

  49. fanofevilempire says: Apr 19, 2013 11:52 AM

    everyone trashes their room.
    no big deal.
