2011 NFL Draft: Weslye Saunders Ineligible Due To Paperwork Failure, According To Report

South Carolina Gamecocks TE Weslye Saunders has been declared ineligible for the 2011 NFL Draft, according to reports. Saunders reportedly failed to turn in the proper paperwork, which would not be the first time the big tight end made a significant error in judgment, if it's true.

He missed the 2010 football season after getting kicked off the team for becoming mixed up in the Marvin Austin investigation and skipping team meetings. At the time his exit looked to severely weaken an already uninspiring 2011 tight end class, though there had been some hope of him getting into the NFL Combine. That's probably not going to happen now.

This seems like the kind of thing that can be appealed, however. Worst case, he can make it into the supplemental draft.

Saunders' draft stock had been all over the map. He's been ranked as high as a third-rounder and called a seventh-round hopeful. He has the talent, but it's not even a question of whether he can stay on the field. It's become a question of whether he even wants to try.
