    I have not been following it closely, Erik. Are you saying he felt that he is so good no one would throw in his direction if he stayed another year...and therefore his draft stock would not go up? There is a disconnect here if that is what he was thinking.

    The old rule of thumb was unless you are generally assumed to be a first round draft pick, you should not come out early. Wish more guys would follow that. Who is advising people these days?

    Good luck to OG. It was going to be a long shot to get drafted after timing 4.53 at 175lbs. This opportunity with the Bills gives him a chance to prove the doubters wrong.

    I am generally in favor of kids that are NFL “no doubters” leaving school for a payday, because the injury risk is real. However, one more year of college has a real monetary and educational value that just cannot be dismissed. Tweeners or long shots need to temper their dreams against reality and the value of college.
