    Guessing that he couldn't be bothered to read beyond the thread title to find out that those those thoughts related to the RS-Frosh year... but didn't let that stop him from posting an opinion.

    Does anyone think this kind of thing hurts his draft stock?

    I think it helps it. If I'm a GM, I know that if I draft Nembot and he struggles as a rookie that he's been through that before and was able to deal with it to come through the other side. You love guys who have been through adversity.

    Meh, no big deal. If you don't ask yourself, "what the hell am I doing out here" at some point, you aren't human. Nembot will be fine.

    Resilience by Greitens is an excellent read. Those that practice resilience build on their skillset.

    Is it a book or an article? Sounds like a good read.

    It's a book. It's excellent.

    Greitens is an Oxford PhD. humanitarian and former Navy SEAL Officer. One of his buddies is struggling to cope with life after the SEALS, and the book is a collection of Greitens' letters to his buddy to build him up and give him meaning and purpose. Greitens relies heavily on classic philosophy, but he makes excellent meaning of the philosophy and brings very readable insights to his arguments.
