Former Gators WR Antonio Callaway has all the talent in the world, Callaway put up over 600 and 700 yards receiving in 2 years starting for Florida, and an average reception rate of 15 yards per catch. A staggering number, given the inadequacy at the QB position. Pro Football Focus, a highly reputable scouting service used by many NFL scouts and GM's, graded Antonio Callaway as one of the 3 best WR's in the 2018 draft class.
Even with all of that, he dropped to the 4th round. And if you've followed his career, you know exactly why.
Here's a list of problems Antonio Callaway has found himself in just the last couple of years playing high profile football:
- Issues with marijuana @ Florida
- Sexual assault allegations (he was later cleared)
- Hanging out with the wrong crowd
- Credit card fraud
- Admitting to smoking weed 6 weeks before the NFL Combine
- The latest: Getting pulled over @ 3am with a suspended license and weed in the car
Prior to the NFL Draft: An NFL scout told NFL reporter Tom Pelissero“He is super talented. The tape from his sophomore season’s really good,”...“But he is a train wreck when it comes to some of that off-field stuff. Poor decision-making at every turn.” With that, Callaway was off a lot of team's board heading into the draft.
But, not Cleveland. The Browns took a gamble on the troubled wide-out, and now they have a decision to make. What would you do if you were Cleveland? Does he deserve another shot?
