re: Scott Van Pelt about to talk about Shep taking himself off the draft board

Shep probably just wants people to think he was going to get drafted and this is why he wasn't. I can see why... I mean going from a 5-star recruit to undrafted must be a pretty big blow to the ego. He's just making the situation worse with this, but I can understand why he said it

Not his agents fault. Probably never crossed his mind that he had to tell Shep not to make up some dumb shite just so it sounds better that he didn't get drafted.


True

If he doesn't make the Eagle's roster, why would anyone else want to be a part of this much arrogance?

Teams put up with bull shite like this all the time, except they are either high draft picks or established players. An NFL organization will not tolerate it from an UDFA. Hell theyre only on the hook for maybe a grand. Daniel Jerimiah was talking the other day about how the UDFA are really only guaranteed like $500 up front before practice starts.

The Eagles have supposedly released a statement denying that it went down the way Shep claims


Of course they did. Qustion is: When will Gooddell's investigation begin ?

I think Shep is a great guy, but the dude has literally zero common sense.

I definitely felt like he was embarrassed by not being drafted. Muscona kind of gave him an out but no Shephard continued with his bs story.

Sounds like Shep knew he wouldn't be drafted. Maybe he concocted this lie to make himself look better. A guy that highly touted probably has a hard time realizing he isn't good enough.

Then he's delusional for even thinking he was on anyone's draft board. LSU wouldn't want him back for another year. Why would anyone?

Since the Jan 9th game he's been throwing a bit of a pitty parade on twitter.

From how SVP said it, this may happen a lot to players late during the 6th and 7th rounds. Teams play on their desperation. Nobody has ever been dumb enough to say it. Much easier to waive an UFA and save face with fans.

I think it is kind of sad. I bet he is feeling like a total dumbass now. Anyone know if he has tweeted about this?

Yep.

I'll never cheer against a former LSU player or graduate, but I am so turned off by his attitude on twitter. I'm not surprised at all about this situation by him either being too naive or him making this up to try to make himself look better in the eyes of his homies.

I think this is probably the case.

So guys really do turn down being drafted by a team and say "I've already signed with ______?"

So said drafting team just calls the next guy???


Weird.

Teams call likely UFA before the draft is over to gauge interest. The Eagles likely called Shep before the draft was over tell him they want to sign him as an UFA. Shep probably took that as he just signed with the Eagles and told that to other teams that were calling.

On AFR yesterday he just came off as very flip about the entire situation and didn't seem believable one bit.

As far as twitter goes he pissed me off with the amount of love he was showing TAMU for an entire week.

I feel bad for him. I wouldn't have known this was illegal. Eagles should have informed him about all this.

Guess that's what happens when the #1 overall recruit in the country gets outplayed by freshman during his junior and senior years.




Oh and I can't wait for that tell-all book he's gonna write
