Marvin Austin Makes His Name

The NFL is pretty meticulous about screening players; as a matter of fact, if we're not mistaken, they developed the whole notion of psychological testing in sports.  So what do they think of former Tar Heel Marvin Austin? Not much, according to Nolan Nawrocki:

“[Austin] has  reputation in the NFL scouting community as a ‘finger-pointing, excuse-making con artist’ who does not know what it means to lead. “[Austin] set a poor example and coasted way too much on his natural talent throughout college.  Set back the UNC program by accepting improper gifts and was called “the ringleader” that led to investigations affecting the eligibility of 13 players.”
