I wonder if college teams are as predictable as the NFL. Seems like the people in Vegas might find this interesting info too.
I apologize for the source but Michael Rosenberg is out looking for malfeasance again. Hopefully this time he didn't just make shit up, but he (allegedly) tracked the number of arrests by NFL team. There were, at least to me, some surprises (Broncos, Colts on the high side, Patriots and Dolphins on the low side).
Edit: the author is actually not that Mike Rosenberg (NTMR)

Lot of grabbing from Trae Waynes early...which is exactly how he covered at Michigan State.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) August 10, 2015
Every college tape I saw of Trae Waynes he couldn't keep his hands off WRs. I knew he'd struggle with the NFL's rules. Easy evaluation.— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) August 10, 2015
It's been well documented how aggressive MSU DBs can be and how much college refs allow them to get away with it, not so much for the NFL. Trae Waynes struggled last night in his first preseason game, mainly because he uses his hands too much. Darqueze Dennard struggled to make similar adjustments to his game last year as a rookie.
Of course, preseason and rookie caveats apply, but question is, does Dantonio's "mug em and hope they don't throw a flag" style make it harder for his players to succeed in the big league? If so, why do they continue to be drafted so high?
