MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Former Auburn star Nick Fairley is
trying not to get stressed out by fluctuations in his NFL draft
stock.

The Lombardi Award-winning defensive tackle went from buzz that
he would be the first player picked to being forecast as a likely
top-10 choice amid questions about his work ethic.

Fairley says it "would be a very stressful deal for me" if he
paid attention to that talk and says his work ethic is fine.

He has had private interviews with Denver, Buffalo, Cincinnati,
Cleveland, Tennessee and Washington. All six teams pick in the top
10.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay says there are concerns about
Fairley's work ethic and the fierce pass rusher's ability against
the run. McShay also says Fairley has the talent to be an impact
NFL player.
