Why Do Some Fail, Why Others Succeed

After hearing about Maurice Clarett and his trouble I wonder why some guys succeed going to the pros and others fail like Maurice. Now it's not just Maurice there is a long list of guys who were big stars who never made it either. You can count Ryan Leaf and Lawrence Phillips in that same breath as Maurice.

It could be in the college frame these guys are protected from anything that can really go wrong by other players and coaches and sometimes the universities. Once they leave college their is no one to protect them and they have to fend for themselves and they don't know how to handle it.

The three examples above all have personal issues within their lives it seems and that could be another factor that causes this. Many people will tell you it's where they were raised or their environment. The NFL is full of guys who had the same troubles and sometimes worse and made it. I guess in the end it comes down to the individual and how bad they want it or not.
