I've seen projections as high as top 10.
Could not disagree more, I will never understand this line of thinking but we all have a right.
I would love for him to stay but I certainly understand that the smart thing to do is turn pro. I doubt that anybody on this forum has been in a position where we know we are guaranteed life changing money that would take care of not only ourselves but our families and knew for certain that the only thing that could prevent that would be an injury that would devalue our bargaining position.
It's easy as us fans to say bravo for staying, Devin or boo Devin for leaving but he is a smart kid and he is the one who has to make that decision. His heart might be telling him to say but his good sense is telling him to leave. People might call Greedy a quitter now but that will be forgotten when he has played in the NFL for a while. He will still be very popular in Baton Rouge after that.
Jerry Sullivan retired yesterday. Tried to check Instagram for White but he hasn’t posted anything new. He did a live video but it was too long to watch the whole thing.
A brief look into this line of thinking... you use college to get a job, Devin is ready for one... you use a job to get...
I’d feel a lot better about players staying if there were common sense protections in place (seems insurance sets up too many hoops).
Top first round? That's hitting the lottery, my friends. You just gotta go. Signing bonus alone justifies it.
I love seeing him at LSU, but totally understand declaring for the draft.
So being part of something that is bigger than yourself, pride, esprit de corps, or maybe just wanting to have a little more fun no longer exist? If he plays another year at LSU that means he can't enter the '20 draft?
Anyone that says "he should" should check themselves if it is not followed by "whatever he wants"
Bunch of pretentious mf'rs
If someone had offered me a multi-million dollar job a year before I graduated college with an opportunity to work alongside the best in the business.....I'd have taken it. Lots of what ifs and yet, what if he got injured and not only didn't play some or all of his last year, but screwed his pro career too? Most drafted players are in the league for roughly 5 years. For that money and chance to play with the 1%? Hell yes, it's time ta go.
