An anonymous scout criticized Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple because he “can’t cook.”
An anonymous scout criticized Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple because he “can’t cook,” reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Bob McGinn.
“I worry about him because of off-the-field issues,” the scout said. “The kid has no life skills. At all. Can’t cook. Just a baby. He’s not first round for me. He scares me to death.”
Though that anonymous scout does not have Apple going in the first round, SI's Greg Bedard has the cornerback going with the 28th pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in his mock draft.
This is not the first time an anonymous scout has made ridiculous comments, so Extra Mustard made a quiz where you can see what kind of anonymous scout you are.
The 20-year-old, who played two seasons with the Buckeyes, recorded 86 tackles, 17 passes defended and four interceptions over his tenure at Ohio State. Apple was also named the defensive MVP of the 2016 Fiesta Bowl after recording five tackles and one pass break-up in his team’s 44–28 win over Notre Dame.
Btw, Eli's dad is a retired five star chef. We eat well. So stop playing with our name. Next time you say our name, put some respeck on it 😳— Annie Apple (@SurvivinAmerica) April 27, 2016
