    This guy is only 23, he'll likely come cheap, can provide some depth at tackle and even compete for a starting job inside because I think a move to guard might be best for him...some notes from PFF.

    So how do you not allow a single QB hit, but you gave up a sack? Was it 2 hand touch.

    maybe this

    According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Kouandjio was involved in a bizarre incident in which police found him partially clothed and asking police to shoot him.

    Kouandjio was found in a T-shirt without pants, but wearing underwear, wandering in a field

    According to the report, an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy found Kouandjio lying in a field after climbing over an electric fence. It was near the scene of an accident. A police source told the News that Kouandjio yelled, “Shoot me!” as police approached.

    Kouandjio was not arrested, but he was taken to a nearby hospital for observation

    I believe we drafted a guy named Phillips from Oklahoma who had similar issues and needed to be on meds. He did not pan out. Now maybe this guys issue was recreational drugs instead. Usually team mates don't have issues with these types of guys but the coaches have to measure the resources required to deal with the situations a guy like that brings to the table

    Mediocre and mentally unbalanced. That's the stuff championship teams are made of. Sign him, sit back, and wait for the inevitable Lombardi trophies to pile up. Be smart and fully guarantee the lengthy deal with increasingly impossible cap hits to outclass other suitors. Can't let that one get away.

    I think it was Phillips he was a running back from Oklahoma, actually I think he was drafted in the 1st round by the Rams discarded and we picked up later and it did not work out.

    Ahhh, I thought you meant our Jordan Phillips, who also went to Oklahoma.

    What year(ish) was that you were talking about? I can't remember the last time a Rams took a rb in the 1st outside of Gurley and Tavon... Steven Jackson wasn't the guy either clearly. Sam Bradford went to Oklahoma...

    It's gotta be Lawrence Phillips from Nebraska. Don't remember the mental issues being a big problem though

    We don't need to acquire high maintenance projects with probable mental health or drug problems. Most players don't wander the fields in their underpants requesting to be killed (and there are some parts of the US where that request would be gladly accommodated). Seem to recall Hayden Fox wanted us to draft Kouandjio ;) and it is significant that Buffalo has now given up on him. Low probability of success although he probably played with Steen at Alabama.

    A night out with Richie will do that to a person! In all seriousness, when that news broke at the time of him being found, I pretty much gathered it was due to synthetic marijuana, much like that Patriots player that showed up at a police station(want to say it was Jones but can't fully remember)

    Best I can make of it Phillips was more like a full blown psychopath -

    Underwood had serious issues with the stability of his psyche. Unbalanced as they say.

    Phillips was ruthless, had no conscience and no guilt and no shame. He treated other people like they were objects. Jimmy Johnson tried to create conditions where he was being "baby-sat" all the time - guys watching him kind of thing...Did not work....But the guy could run...

    As I remember it, he ended jumping from the window of his ex-girlfriends apartment after she had put a restraining order on him...police got him and then he was done from the Dolphins...

    Underwood was a Shula project after Underwood pulled a knife I think on a player in Minnesota - or maybe he did something crazy with a knife in Miami....Not sure, but he was troubled, needed medication, maybe a severe case of bi-polar disorder...

    Had a guy come through the hospital I work at who had no past psych issues and went nuts on synthetic marijuana. Would slam his face into anything hard until it looked like hamburger. Had to be kept in a padded room. Went on for weeks. He eventually got shipped out, so for all I know he is permanently ****ed.

    ...Typically, I'll try anything once, but that put me off synthetic marijuana for good.

    Anyhow, I'd give Kuandjio a shot. Seems like they were looking for a way to give Juwuan James some urgency.

    I thought of Demetrius(IIRC) Underwood whom we drafted in the supplemental draft. Wasn't it Saban that had him an emotional wreck either in TC or a practice?

    Wasn't Underwood. Underwood was acquired by Jimmy Johnson after he flaked out in Minnesota but never played a real game for the Dolphins.

    You're thinking about the DT we took from Southern Cal in the supplemental draft. Saban made him cry in training camp but I can't remember his name...he sucked and wasn't around long enough.

    He sounds like Demetrius Underwood, Alonzo Spellman or Barrett Robbins.
