I think it's noble, but a very silly move for him financially. His stock is very, very high right now. The only reason to stay is for a national title and that would certainly be nice.
But is the risk worth it? The guy could get injured next year and get nothing.
Maybe they'll have a decent running back next season?
This might prove to be a mistake...he loses Shipley, Cosby, and three seniors from the offensive line. :confused:
Edit: Excuse me. Four seniors on the OL.
This years QB class will probably be stronger than next years. Texas didn't even expect to be that good this year, they knew they were set up for a run next year.
Good for him. From everything I have heard his draft stock is not incredibly high...give him another year to work on his arm. He is obviously a hard worker, just look at all the muscle he put on for this year. I am just glad we don't have to deal with him next year.
McCoy I figured would stay, but if Bradford stays I will be VERY suprised.
I agree with 22. Look at Matt Leinart. From a financial standpoint, that guy only hurt himself by staying an extra year. Had he gone in the 2005 draft he would have been number 1 for sure.
Then again, I'm not sure that the taking the place of Alex Smith would have been that great for him either.
It all depends if Bradford, Stafford, or Freeman come out. But that shouldn't change McCoy's decision, b/c there really is no better time for him to leave
Good for him. I hate the fact that so many kids leave early to the NFL. Yet, I'd do the same thing if people flashed that kind of money in my face. :goofy:
So much risk for what I think is a marginal reward. Again, I love the devotion and team aspect in the kid - not many are loyal these days. However, we've seen where loyalty gets people and in a decent number of cases - it's not very far.
Somewhere, the kid is getting some seriously bad advice. Or he's just not listening.
One other thing I heard about guys coming out early this year is the NFLPA and the NFL have been in talks about a rookie cap after this year. Even if you think you could move up in the draft this cap may mean you make more this year at a lower pick than next year at a higher pick.
Seems someone is forgetting about Tebow. He is a pretty damn good QB. Plus if stafford, bradford, come out, then it would be a great class. Plus harrell is very good as well
I could see Harrell lighting it up at workouts, he can really make all the throws.
