CBs and safeties have different jobs. DJ SHOULD have made more inspiring plays because that was his job on the field. Vic's job is to cover. I'm a huge Swearinger fan btw.

Also lol @ saying some high school kid is better than Vic.

Guess I know why you're on my ignore list. Shoulda been logged on and wouldn't have even had to read this post

I think he probably goes also. Although I think there is a chance now that he stays, where as two weeks ago I thought he was as good as gone.

That's just crazy! What could act possibly do to stop us from taking two timeouts back to back in Tenn?

Some people on here are very spiteful of our players choices. You don't know all the factors that could be going on for them. If they wish to leave early thank them for being gamecocks and good luck in the NFL. So many d@mn negative nancies voicing an opinion the players could care less about.

Vic turned into one of my favorite players. He came in as an immature kid who made some personal mistakes and turned into a man who got his life together and is now ready to cash out. I don't blame him if he goes. If he stays it will be a piece of the puzzle to a possible championship year.

You're crazy if you think they're getting 6,000 a week. I've seen reports they make a little less than 100,000. Plus, how many guys stay on the practice squad more than a few years?

Is it worth it to make 100,000 for 4 years?? No!

That's probably about right actually, because I'm pretty sure practice players are on contract for just the football season, not the whole year. They aren't getting 6k a week in the middle of the spring. I could be wrong though.

Vic really changed while at school. Was glad seeing him mature. Another Marcus took under his wing.

I think he should evaluate well as a cover corner. And I think he will do well in the combine. Go get paid Vic.

Gosh it would be terrible to get another year of free school and free food and hopefully improve your draft stock and delay your dream by one year.

Most people in the NFL only last a few years. So what if he goes in for a few years and only makes $500,000 and has no degree? Do you really think he'll come back on his own dime and pay for that? I doubt it.

If he's projected to go early enough then yea go for it. But most are saying he won't go early so it's better for him to come back another year. That's all I'm saying.

And I'll fully support his decision and wish him the best either way. It's not my life so it doesn't really effect me. I wish the best for all of our players.

Default Re: Victor Hampton to declare for the NFL draft

You guys really think vic is going to go undrafted or be cut in 1-2years? 1year wont change his physical abilities, and even at the league minimum hell probably end up a millionaire.

As a strictly personal decision it is very hard to determine what the best course of action is monetarily. Leaving early, however, reduces risk.

Hope he does well but I thought that his draft stock could go up with another year. I know he's good but I wouldn't put him in the same category as Antonio, for example.

Also felt like he could personally benefit from completing his degree.

All the best to him, regardless.
