When it comes to due diligence, there’s not another sports league on the planet that does it like the NFL.

They will find out just about anything on a player. While “Draft Day” isn’t an outstanding film, it actually does a great job at showing this aspect of the league.

Obviously, parking tickets aren’t really a big deal, and I’m sure it won’t impact Blacklock’s stock at all. He should still probably get those taken care of. He’s about to have a ton of money. It really shouldn’t be an issue.
