From reading the Navarro story it sounds like he wanted to get fronted the $$$ to get his mom off the front lines and protect his family.The lighting quick signing with Rosenhaus was very odd.
Texting Manny at the press conference saying he was gonna opt out was odd.
Something fishy happened behind the scenes. I wouldn’t put it past Rosenhaus.
He could of opted out and waited to see what happened, but he signed like an hour after telling Manny.
I won't impugn his character for making that choice but NFL front offices will question his commitment to football, and there are definite question marks on film that could drop him from top 10 to the 20 range. Old school front offices are always skeptical of guys who are 1-year starters and GR isn't even that. He has the ACL tear in his background and who knows how his knee will check out when tested. He hasn't shown he can take on blocks in college so the adjustment to NFL physicality and run defense will be severe. There are a lot of things that can go wrong for him in the draft process.
