The one thing they'll never be able to measure at the draft combine is heart.
Anybody who watched the the SEC for the 2 years Russell QB'ed that LSU team could have told you how bad that guy was going to be. LSU won a national championship in spite of his poor play not because of him. In 13 career games vs. teams with a winning record in college, he threw more INTs than TDs. The coaching staff had to dummy down the playbook because he didn't have the intelligence to grasp it. The writing was all over the wall. You just had to read it. Mel Kiper must be illiterate. Rumor has it that Jamarcus is too.
