He deserves to be picked in the first round because of his accomplishments on the field. His love life shouldn't be a factor in his draft value.
Not everyone thought that he was a top ten pick to begin with. USC fans understand how ILB's can be overrated pre-draft, even if you're only considering their play on the field.
