Coached by Leslie Frazier and his staff at the Senior Bowl, Dennard pulled out of practices and went home but two days into the week once it became known that he was struggling mightily in coverage drills. His agent later stated that Dennard suffered an injury of an unspecified nature and that was the reason he aborted the Senior Bowl (yeah, sure). This came following the Capital One Bowl where Dennard was ejected from his final college game after getting into a fight with South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. So, his draft stock arrow was not exactly pointing up even before this latest incident.
Having dusted off and consulted Zygi Wilf's 77-page Code of Conduct, it appears that this sort of conduct might not be deemed acceptable behavior at Winter Park. And albeit it falls into a bit of a grey area, the Vikings might choose to play it safe and remove Dennard entirely from their draft board.
