Via Kissing Suzy Kolber:

I’m always a fan of novel controversies. It’s so boring when a potential draftee has his stock plummet because of a DUI arrest or, God forbid, failing a weed test. That’s old hat. So it pleases me to see that a couple players could get knocked for possibly trashing their hotel room during the combine.

National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster, who runs the NFL scouting combine, confirmed that a hotel room was left trashed during the February 2013 event in Indianapolis. However, Foster refused to identify the two players who shared the room for three nights, though sources have indicated that one of the two prospects is a potential first-round pick in next week’s NFL draft.

Please be Te’o. Please be Te’o. Please be Te’o. Please be Te’o. Please be Te’o. Please be Te’o.

Foster said nothing was broken in the room, but the bathroom was in such bad shape that a manager from the Crowne Plaza where the players stayed took pictures and relayed them to him.

The crude behavior included urine and feces scattered about the bathroom, toothpaste on the mirror and garbage strewn about the room. Among the garbage was partially eaten food left on one of the beds. The players to whom the room was registered have denied their involvement to NFL team representatives who have questioned them at their respective pro days, according to Foster and other sources close to the situation.

I have a feeling stuff like this happens with NFL veterans not infrequently, but because it’s regarding potential draftees, any and all signs of troublesome behavior are inflated to a ridiculous degree. Nevertheless, I hope this is disclosed publicly, because it’s about time we have prospects' draft grades slip for being disgusting hotel guests.
