"If I am him, I'm thinking I have to show these guys I'm ready to play,'' Bears director of college scouting Greg Gabriel said. "He hasn't played in two years now. He's telling us he's not ready to play. If he's not physically ready to play, why would you waste a draft pick on him.'' Clarett will not work out with other running backs today and has turned down a chance to work out at Ohio State during the school's workout day next month. He said he will run and lift for scouts in the first week of April, about three weeks before the draft. "That's a farce,'' Buffalo Bills general manager Tom Donahoe said. "That was expected, but it's ridiculous.''

Like drafting Willis wasn't?
