NFL prospect Stetson Bennett opens up about arrest during combine

NFL prospect Stetson Bennett opened up about his January arrest during a press conference at the combine on Friday in Indianapolis, saying he's apologized to family and talked to coaches about the incident.

The former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback also touched on the school's culture due to at least nine of its players getting arrested in just over one year.

"No. Those were individual mistakes that those individuals are responsible for. Not a culture issue," Stetson said.

Bennett, 25, Bennett, led Georgia to back-to-back national titles, including early January's 65-7 victory over the TCU Horned Frogs.

He was detained for public intoxication in Dallas on January 29 and was reportedly seen "walking further back in the gated area to hide behind a brick wall by a random [apartment] in attempt to possibly avoid [the arresting officers'] detection."

Stetson Bennett's headline history

Bennett, previously a walk-on at Georgia prior to transferring to Jones County Junior College, has made a name for himself both on and off the field.

He finished his college career with a 29-3 record, racking up 8,429 passing yards with 66 touchdowns against 12 interceptions.

Bennett has recently been making headlines due to skipping February's Senior Bowl and being on his phone during the team's victory parade.

The quarterback explained his decision to skip the bowl game was to focus on the NFL Combine. Bennett also stated he was only on his phone to play the best music for teammates.
