An NFL GM tells Jarrett Bell of USA Today that everything is in a “holding pattern” right now in regards to Ohio State CB Gareon Conley following the recent rape allegations made against him.

“It puts everything into a holding pattern,” the GM said. “You try not to be surprised by anything. But things keep coming along.”

  • Albert Breer reports that Conley has spent the past 24 hours speaking with NFL coaches and GMs.
  • According to Breer, NFL teams are also speaking with witnesses regarding what took place.
  • Breer adds that there’s a collective scramble for info regarding Conley and this situation.
  • The expectation is that police won’t make a decision regarding Conley’s case in the next 33 hours or so, which means this situation will very likely impact his draft status, per Breer.
