Our friends at Rotoworld have spotted in a pre-draft feature from Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel a quote that serves only to strengthen our belief that Cal running back Jahvid Best could be the last of the 16 guys who’ll attend the draft to wear a team hat and hold up a jersey with the number 1 on it.
Per McGinn, an unnamed scout said that Best remains concerned about a history of concussions.
Yeah, he’s worried about it,” said the scout, who has spoken to Best. “Plus, he has a muscle going down from his neck
to his leg that bothers him. That’s my reservation on Best. He’s coming
in all beat up.”
And if a guy is emerging from the college game “all beat up,” there’s a chance he won’t last too long when he’s getting beat up by grown men.
