Which NFL Franchise Revealed It Has Ole Miss' Robert Nkemdiche As A "Red-Flag" Player?

Ole Miss defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche's talent is well-known, as are his off-field issues. Nkemdiche is worthy of a first-round selection based on playing ability, but his past may scare teams off.

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn confirmed today that the team has marked Nkemdiche as a "red flag" player, While Quinn said that doesn't necessarily mean the Lions won't draft the 6-foot-3, 295-pound star, it does mean there are concerns.
