I think Vic is a very good back. I don't know how high he will be drafted though. Whether it's this year or next year, I don't know if he's going to be that Top 3 round draft pick.

This is what people are missing...is he graded as a top round draft pick? Probably not....will he be able to improve to a top round pick next year? Probably not. If the grade comes back and says he is about as high as he can ever expect to go in the draft then he should go ahead and take the next step. Also, if he's out of the top couple rounds he can't get much insurance to protect himself like Clowney did this year since the policy is based on your draft projection. This was the issue with Ace last year....he didn't fall under what people normal think of as an early entry into the draft as a high round pick but he didn't have much potential to move up in the draft either.

I think people forget how coveted a lock-down corner like him truly is in the NFL. Vic had one heck of a year at corner...the way he fights through blocks on screens and shuts down his man on passes is a hard combo to find.

And even if he got a 4th round grade he'd still be gone..can you say more money in the first year and signing bonus than many people will earn in their lifetime....just sayin.

TBS has spoken to their NFL Guru and they are saying Hampton is a late round pick at best. Kid should get his Degree and stay for one more year and move up in the Draft. This Guru has been within 1 round of all our guys and has hit exact on most of them over the last 2 years.

Why not start his rookie clock running seeing at the difference between rounds is not that pronounced? Then he's closer to his second contract where the real money is and he'll probably have enough money to pay tuition all the way to graduation after the 1st paycheck anyway.

Well, I loved Vic. He grew up so much here, and that's what this is all really about. Good luck to the young man. To those judging - let's not forget that we don't know what situation he is in or where he comes from.

Because a late round pick isn't guaranteed to make any Team and the money from a top 3 round pick cannot be made up if he is drafted 6 to 7 this year even with a year jump start on 6th or 7th round money. I think he is going but I am not sure thats his best move. He comes back has a productive year and likely would be a top 3 round pick.

Default Re: Victor Hampton to declare for the NFL draft

Word on the street is Vic is leaving the door open to return to USC based upon what he hears in his draft evaluation. The folks he's talked to with NFL ties are telling him late 2nd to 3rd rounds. That's enough to go IMHO.

If he projects below the 3rd I could see him coming back. He'd be a top 5 corner after his Senior year.

I'd love to see him come back, have another year to polish his skills and increase his draft stock.

Yet another one of our players who could use one more year to improve draft stock ala Ace Sanders and help us win the SEC which I think we would have done had Ace stayed. We would have not lost a regular season game if Ace had not bolted. Great Gamecock but I'll always have a small amount of bitterness towards Ace. I hope Quarles changes his mind and comes back.

Can't be bitter that he wanted to make his money. He's doing well in Jacksonville. I'm not sure having Ace would've won us the UGA game.. unless he ran a punt return back or something.
