Every year there has to be one idiot. Charles is a borderline first rounder. Mistakes like even as second rounders can cost 100'000 dollars over the life of a rookie contract. Its really unbelievable

Former Georgia tight end Orson Charles, one of the three best tight end draft prospects in this class, was arrested for DUI on Friday morning.

That news was first reported by the Georgia student newspaper Red & Black. CBSSports.com has since confirmed with theAthens-Clarke County Police that Charles was arrested at 4:31 a.m. ET on Friday morning.

Charles was arrested for DUI and "minimum speed." Per the police office, that means "basically, he was driving too slow."

Motorcycle Cop: "Seven. Seven miles an hour! And normally, when I stop people, they pull onto the shoulder!

<font size="2">Dumb move man, dumb move. This guy just pissed away a couple hundred thousand easy. How far did he drop on the Giants big board and do you think they are even still taking interest in him?</font>

I doubt he would be completely off of the board but you can bet that the Giants wouldn't consider him till around their 5th pick at the least and that might be me thinking generously.

As someone who used to play football and was physically limited from going to the next level, it pisses me off every time I see a kid doing this. If I was really that reckless, I'd pay someone to constantly watch me and keep me away from doing stupid crap. Unbelievable...

Mid to bottom of the second.

He was Mayock's favorite TE but behind Allen and Fleener in most everyone else's boards.

Even smart guys get DUI's. Look at Mckenzie. This changes nothing in my mind. He was a mid-late 2nd round prospect and still is.

He just plummeted on the Reese-O-meter.

Well hopefully he drops tremendously, so the Giants can pick him up in the 3rd or 4th round and pay him less money. Thanks Orson way to go bro keep up the good work...#SMH

Meh, he wasn't all that great as a TE prospect. I was really impressed with his initial/short area quickness and is a pretty underrated blocker as far technique goes, but isn't overly impressive in any other area.

Was having an unimpressive offseason and this just worsens it

Good people do bad things, it happens. Jerry Reese, if he's interested in this kid, will talk to him about the organization's expectations just as he did with Ahmad Bradshaw and that turned out OK.

Was he stupid? Of course. Haven't we all been stupid at least once in our lives? The only people I know who could say no to that are Morehead State, MMB, Harooni, and Fbomb [;)]

Bradshaw was a late round pick, Charles is not. That is a big difference. Giants dont really take chances like that on early picks.

I have never liked this kid for us in round 1. I also think he hurt himself at the combine for a couple reasons:

He is a h-back/ move guy, not and end line TE. Those hybrid guys need to keep their speed in order to be a mismatch vs LBs in space, but they also need to retain size advantage over DBs. To me, Charles came in too big and stout for a move guy. He looked clunky in drills to me, as if his big arms were hurting his ability to make reach catches. I almost think he tried to show he was an end line TE rather then working on his niche, which is as a move guy. Trying to be something he isnt may have hurt him even before this DUI incedent.

What a bonehead. If I was a draft prospect, I probably would be either in the gym, with my agent or sleeping.

Not to mention the prospect of drafting a 6'2 TE wasn't all that thrilling either.

I still think they're going after Fleener

I think he will be a bargain in the 3rd or 4th round if he is still available. IMO, he has way too much talent to even fall that far. Someone will most likely roll the dice with him prior. Some teams actually draft for talent instead of character (Dallas Cowboys). YOu see how that has worked for them lately. LOL

DUI is most likely a misdemeanor in this case. Nothing to get all up in arms about.

Even smart guys get DUI's. Look at Mckenzie. This changes nothing in my mind. He was a mid-late 2nd round prospect and still is.It changes things in the eyes of GM's which means if we've done our home work on him and know his character to be strong, we will get him lower now than we would have 2 days ago. That is a good thing for us. He'll have to make up the difference on his next contract.

Yes we all make some mistakes one time or another in life. But Orson Charles could have hurt or killed someone else if not himself.Plain and simplehe used poor judgement. I'm sure he knew he was over the limit, thus, he worried about a cop catching him speeding, and overcompensated and wound up going too slow.</P>


</P>


Come one Orson, you are trying to make it to the big time, the NFL. Your future employer does not want to see this on your resume! </P>


</P>


Hopefully he learns from what could be a costly mistake. </P>

<font size="2">Bad things do happen to good people &amp; I'm sure we all have made some kind a "stupid" mistake at some point in our lives. But not many people are given opportunities like Orson Charles has to play in the NFL and make millions of dollars. Believe it or not, this incident will affect his stock and he'll have to explain to teams and ensure them that this incident isn't going to happen again and he won't be a problem if that team selects him. </font>
