Good Draft, Bad Draft? Did Bengals Mess It Up Late?

5th Round they take Kevin Huber,, Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!!!! 6th Round they take Bernard Scott,, Whaaaaaaat??? Why? Why mess up what appears to be a solid draft with a 6th round pick with more baggage than a Samsonite dealer. Once again, it's the Bengals. Raising eyebrows and opening doors to the same old questions. The Bengals organization should be working to put all of that behind them. They tell us they put stock in character. That's what they tell us, then they do something totally different. You do this for a 6th round pick? I like the other picks, love the fact they grabbed local punter Huber. I wish Scott well, but if there's one team that can't afford the luxury of drafting a running back with character issues in the 6th round, it's this one. They can't help themselves. Yes, he's loaded with talent, and all things being equal a steal in the 6th round. But the negatives outweigh the positives. By far. Not even close. Arrested 5 times. Are you kidding me? Five? Allegedly kicked off a high school team and a college team. Allegedly kicked off the Central Arkansas team for allegedly punching a coach. I don't need the word allegedly for this: The Bengals can't help themselves from bringing on the bad pub.
By the way, here's a link to Scott's personal web site. Not a lot there, but here you go...

And a New York Times article on Scott
