"The Guy Needed a Bra..."

That's what scouts were saying about my boy Lendale White at the USC combine for NFL Scouts.As you may know, I love Lendale, but I guess what I heard is true: he's lazy! Not that I ever thought Reggie was overrated (although maybe I thought Mat was at one point), but I've always thought Lendale was underappreciated. Well now, he's just overwieght and quickly sinking to the bottom of the NFL draft pick list.

"White weighed in at 244 pounds, up six pounds from the doughy 238 pounds he displayed at the NFL scouting combine in February. White also did his best not to display much by wearing a loose-fitting warm-up suit for the entire workout. This was after White drew audible groans from NFL scouts when he bared his chest at the combine.

As one NFL general manager said after seeing White at the combine: “The guy needed a bra, it was ridiculous. You come to the combine looking like that and you want to be a first-round pick? Come on. The guy had obviously been doing nothing.”

“The guy can play, but he just gets by,” said a former USC offensive player who was teammates with White. “He coasted in practice and he coasted in the offseason. He came in thinking he just had to put in his time and that’s what you see now. People think he’s great and the talent is there … but the stuff he did was just because he played next to Reggie and with all those other guys around him. If he had really worked at it, he would have been amazing.”


I'm hoping in true Trojan fashion, he'll come back to play some stellar ball in the NFL from whatever lowly seed position he's earned himself and does great things in the league. Lendale the NFL is no small pond my dear, the league only has room for the best of the best.

Lendale, stop being lazy, boo!!!

*what a shame*

I thought the same thing about his teamate. Crazy though, I heard that Lendale would go to team works outs and do nothing from my boy who plays ball at Cal.

Apparently word spreads quickly.
