Former Oregon TE, Other Prospects Face Character Questions At NFL Combine

By Jim McCoy Mon 24th February SportsColt LyerlaNFL Combine
Former Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla knew what he was walking into at this year's NFL's scouting combine. A room full of tough questioners. This weekend, reporters repeatedly asked Lyerla how a solid draft prospect could put himself in a position to get arrested, plead guilty to cocaine possession and wind up on probation all in the span of about five months. They also wanted him to detail how he's changed in those short months. Teams, Lyerla acknowledged, want the same answers - and not just from him. With more than 300 players traveling to Indianapolis for the NFL's second biggest offseason event, character questions are taking center stage as team officials do their regular background examinations.
