Iím talking about young college players not over the hill pros.
Tate and Burfect are the two that standout the most to me. Two superstars as Freshmen, then each year worse and worse (I get the sophomore slump but what do you call it when each year after is worse yet?), by the end I think both had negative WAR value in my book. I think attitude had a lot to do with both but certainly true with Burfect. He could and should have been another Suggs. Tate, coaching change sure, afraid to get hurt-maybe, no doubt both counted their fame and fortune too early. Burfect KINDA pulled it together (only meaning he made and stayed in the league). Tate needs a position change (last year at the latest). Interesting to me to consider DJ Foster in this. He was a star Freshman and Sophmore RB then moved to receiver to enhance his draft ability. He didnít have the year over year fall off at all, but itís interesting his attitude allowed him to at least go along with the change and he has gotten several years in the NFL at the end of the day. I know he is in the NFL as a RB but lot of his game is catching out of the backfield. To me the reason he has made it in the league when so many donít stick is his attitude. He is a favorite. Sucks that he and Eno will mostly likely be fighting for the same spot.
