Wisconsin RB P.J. Hill Jailed with DUI, more


 Junior running back P.J. Hill was released from jail Monday after being arrested over the weekend for a slew of alcohol and driving related charges, including drunk driving, reckless driving, driving without headlights, reckless endangerment and fleeing police.

Hill surprised many with his decision to leave school after his junior season, but had been wildly successful with the Badgers, rushing for nearly 4,000 yards and 42 touchdowns to rank behind only Ron Dayne and Anthony Davis as Wisconsin's most productive running backs.

Prior to the arrest, Hill had been quietly moving up draft boards after an impressive showing at his Pro Day. Hill's lack of agility and straight-line speed would have kept him in the middle to later rounds, but teams had interest.

Like fellow Big Ten standout Alex Boone of Ohio State, however, Hill's alcohol-related arrest is coming at the worst possible time and could lead to a tumble right out of the draft.

Arizona QB Tuitama arrested for "extreme DUI"


 Former Arizona Wildcat standout Willie Tuitama damaged his chances at being picked in next month's NFL Draft with the news that he was arrested last night and charged with "extreme DUI."

This is the second alcohol-related offense for Tuitama, who was charged with being a minor in possession two years ago.

Tuitama leaves Arizona as the school's record-holder in passing yards (9,216) and passing touchdowns (67) and was viewed as a potential late round or free agent prospect.
