Every year, there’s one player who manages to screw himself over just before the NFL Draft by getting arrested for some stupid reason. If you had Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill in your pool, guess what: you’re a winner! The WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL says the former Badgers star was arrested last Saturday after allegedly leading police on a brief, drunken car chase.
This is a bad thing to have happen to anyone a month before the NFL Draft. But if you’re someone projected to be a fifth or sixth round draft pick, it’s pretty much career suicide. Especially if you were already suspended as a freshman for an incident at a dorm room where you were allegedly “brandishing a baseball bat.” You might as well just start asking Dennis Green if his UFL team needs any running backs.
