Concerns About Kenny Britt?

In Sunday’s Daily News, there was an interesting article about Kenny Britt. Some highlights:

-Britt admits he doesn’t follow football in his spare time. He didn’t know who Darrius Heyward-Bey was when they met at pre-draft training facility

-He does know a lot about salary structure, however, saying :”It doesn’t matter, first-round money, second-round,” he says, a glint in his eye. “The money’s in the second contract.”

-Scouts think he is a diva, with Gil Brandt calling him “Hollywood”. He has, as Brandt says, a “charismatic, flamboyant personality.” 

-He’s been compared to Terrell Owens, both on and off the field. 

-Rutgers Coach Greg Schiano says he is not a diva. In fact, he is one of the hardest workers he has ever been around: “He approaches the game with incredible intensity,” Schiano says. 

That didn’t stop a flood of questions from scouts about Britt’s character at Rutgers’ Pro Day last month. Schiano answered all the questions with the same aplomb.

“(The diva rumors) are totally false,” he says. “Somehow, some way, this stuff got out. But it’s just not true.”

Is Britt worth a first round pick? Are his character concerns too much to deal with?  Do you place talent over character? What do you guys think?
