Trashed combine hotel room.

Mark Harrison was flying under the radar as well and was looking as a possible steal to be found mid rounds.

The bigger issue isn't even that he trashed a hotel room, but that it was at the combine. You would like to see some control there. Hard to blame one guy when they shared a room, though. It's also a time when a whole bunch of young dudes are hanging out together, so who the hell knows who did what? The descriptions are also vague.

It could just be two messy dudes who don't know better. Or it could have been booze related. Or it could be one guy responsible. I'm sure all 32 teams know. The timing of the leak suggests someone wants Hopkins draft stock to fall, personally.

I dont see it taking them off the board though if the Steelers are high on them.

Try explaining to Art Rooney Jr why you $%&# on the bathroom floor...

Hey Art, isn't your first round pick that the kid that $%#* on the floor at the combine?

Really? In 30 years at the combine, I don't recall any other reports of a "kid"/draft hopeful $#%^**!&@ on the floor at the hotel and leaving it there or any room messed up for that matter.

Kids in Vegas for a weekend or any other hotel at any other time but not at the interview of your life as a guest of your potential employers..

I'm pretty sure this has come up with any team that has spoken to him, and again...no one knows if it was him that even did it. It's a room that is shared.

Lol. You guys are hypocrites. So, a guy smokes weed (on verge of being legal, Tyrann Mathieu, Da'Rick Rogers) and oh he's a bad guy. They have been doing everything right since then and got their life in order

And then bc you have a renob for a guy he goes and does something like this and oh it's just a kid making a mistake. Where is the line in the sand?

Mike Adams was an immature pothead who will probably end up being our best draft pick from last year if DeCastro busts.

Don't really get why some kid having too good of a time in a hotel room makes him a DND for the Steelers. We've had our fair share of woman beaters, pot heads, drunks, and accused rapists.

Kid will still get drafted were people have him slotted, he won't drop, big difference then this and kids failing a drug test.

Schefter reporting NFL Sources HArrison had nothing to do with it

Two trash hotel room at combine

t Facebook t Twitter

A trashed hotel room at the Indianapolis scouting combine belonged to Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, according to league sources.

Recently, Yahoo! reported that a room shared by two players was left in bad condition, but did not identify who the room belonged to. It was learned this week, through multiple sources, that the room belonged to Hopkins and Harrison.

However, NFL sources are convinced that Harrison was not responsible for the trashed room.

Inside the room, urine and feces were around the bathroom, toothpaste was left on the mirror and partially-eaten food was left on one of the beds. Neither player made any attempt to clean up the mess that was created, according to witnesses. Nor has either player has taken responsibility for the room. But the NFL community is now well aware of the players whose room it was.

One NFL coach expressed disappointment to hear that Hopkins, who is regarded as a potential second-round pick, was one of the rooms' inhabitants.

What makes the action especially disappointing to NFL teams is that National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster warns each player at the start of the combine that all eyes will be on them and they will be evaluated from the moment they arrive in Indianapolis until the moment they leave it.

As it turned out, Hopkins' and Harrison's room was on the first floor of the Crowne Plaza hotel where players stay and teams conduct interviews. At the end of the combine, some scouts took pictures of the room because of the condition it was left in. Teams have inquired more and more about which players stayed in the room, and they have learned it was Hopkins and Harrison.

Hopkins' agent, Hadley Engelhard, did not return calls seeking comment. Harrison's agent, Ed Wasielewski, could not be reached for comment.

He hasn't done everything right since then...his last failed test was October after being kicked out of LSU. He has a real issue behind the pot, which is the people he surrounded himself with. SI had a good story on him, and there were more red flags than weed.

It's the COMBINE, not Vegas someone else said. It's a job interview that lasts not even a week. I'm not saying Hopkins is DND now, but it wasn't just some random hotel room on some random weekend.

one is a lapse in judgement, while the other if done regularly is a character flaw. big difference.

This is the time of season when [inappropriate/removed] gets leaked to make a prospect fall.

Hopkins may have been sneaking up draft boards to the mid 1st round, and some team wants him to fall. What better way then to leak this? Not saying it's false, but it's certainly possible.
