Poor Demetrius, it's actually a pretty sad case of mental instability. It was a bonehead move by the Vikings to even draft him in the first place. He had great talent, but even his coaches at Michigan State didn't think he could overcome his mental problems.

Sounds like Hovan, and idiot is probably the best description you can give the guy.
