Questions surround ex-Ala. lineman leaving NFL Combine

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Former Alabama tackle Andre Smith's strange behavior at the NFL scouting combine has only added to the questions surrounding his character.

After being suspended for the Sugar Bowl because of alleged improper dealings with an agent, he unexpectedly left the combine Saturday without notifying NFL officials or giving an explanation.

It's not unusual for a player to leave early. But not informing combine officials caused a bit of problem for a player who could be taken No. 1.

There is talk among NFL executives that Smith's draft stock could slip because of his recent actions.
