The Wall Street Journal today reports results of a personality test given to former Florida Gator Aaron Hernandez shortly before the 2010 NFL draft. In a part of the psychological profile called “Social Maturity”, Hernandez received the lowest possible score – 1 out of 10. The paper says the test showed that while Hernandez would likely get along with teammates, ”he will find very little time to help them” and also added this about his responses meant:
“suggest he enjoys living on the edge of acceptable behavior and that he may be prone to partying too much and doing questionable things that could be seen as a problem for him and his team.”
While the Journal says the New England Patriots declined to comment on whether they had seen the report before the draft, others are not as reticent. Former Indianapolis Colts GM Bill Polian told the paper that while his team was looking for a tight end in the 2010 draft, the Colts ”never got that far” in their evaluation of the former Gator player. ”We were not in the Hernandez business.”
Hernandez has bee in jail since last week after pleading not guilty to a first-degree murder charge in connection with the execution-style slaying of Odin Lloyd. Boston police are now asking for help from authorities in the Connecticut hometown of Hernandez as they explore his possible link to a double-murder in 2012 while questions are being raised about Hernandez’ possible role in a 2007 Gainesville shooting.
