Teams Don't Think Hazing Lawsuit Will Hurt Gross-Matos

In recent weeks, news broke that the Penn State football program was being hit with a lawsuit from a former player claiming he endured hazing while with the program. One of the players mentioned in the lawsuit as having done the hazing is defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos. Gross-Matos is a potential first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after two quality seasons of play at Penn State. WalterFootball.com reached out to sources at five different teams to see if the hazing allegations would send Gross-Matos' stock down, and the consensus opinion was that it probably won't hurt Gross-Matos next April.

Four of the five team sources said after looking into it, they did not believe that it would hurt Gross-Matos. One team's director of college scouting said they thought it could because some teams are becoming very sensitive in the current cultural climate, but the opinions will vary by team. By and large, it did not sound like Gross-Matos is being downgraded.

Gross-Matos will be asked about the hazingand the lawsuit, however, during team interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine and on pre-draft visits. If he doesn't handle or answer the questions well, that could cause him to slide, according to a few team sources. Thus, Gross-Matos' interviews in the weeks to come are going to be important for him, but entering the combine, the hazing lawsuit does not sound like it is hurting him.
