NFL teams rarely leave any stone unturned when conducting background checks ahead of interviews with draft prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine. Clubs can even uncover things players didn't know about themselves, as former TCU defensive tackle Ross Blacklock learned during his interview with the Las Vegas Raiders.
"The Raiders told me about my 37 parking tickets that I didn't know about," Blacklock revealed Thursday, according to Nick Jhabvala of The Denver Post.
It's fair to wonder how one could rack up such a large number of parking tickets without knowing about them, but Blacklock explained that TCU deducts the value of the fines from players' financial stipends.
"I guess it's a good thing because I don't got no bad record," joked Blacklock.
The 22-year-old is expected to be a Day 2 pick following a standout career with the Horned Frogs.
