Selwyn Lymon, WR, Purdue

Purdue wide receiver Selwyn Lymon has declared for the NFL draft. The red shirt sophomore declared following his dismissal from the Boilermaker football team this season. Lymon has all the physical tools to be a great wide receiver, but appears to lack the desire to work for it and the common sense to stay out of trouble. At 6'4" and 215 lbs., he has elite size and fantastic speed to accompany it. He can be a handful in the redzone when and if he tries to get open. Lymon caught 73 passes for 1030 yards and 5 TDs in 25 career games. On rare occasions, he looked inspired and frankly unstoppable. Unfortunately, he can't stay out of trouble. He red shirted his first year on campus because he was an academic non-qualifier. In 2007, he was stabbed in a bar fight during the offseason (drinking underage with a fake ID), after starting a fight with a female patron. During November, he was arrested for a DUI and resisting arrest. No NFL team in their right mind will draft Lymon, especially in the Roger Goodell era. Lymon is, however, so talented he will likely receive multiple training camp invitations. If he shows he's willing to work hard and runs good routes, his size and speed may land him a roster spot.
