Default Bruce Ellington to declare for NFL?

Bruce Ellington left the door open to leaving for the NFL if his draft evaluation is high enough.


Probably less than 30% chance he declares for NFL this year but who knows?

Bruce Ellington: "If (NFL draft status is) pretty good I am going to talk to coach (Martin) and tell him I want to go."

I wonder what would qualify as "pretty good" in reference to draft status.

Read that a while ago. I personally would be surprised if he got a top three round grade, but we never know.

I wish he would come back. Rarely do our skill players come back for their final year, but that's just me being selfish, I guess.

I think 4th round or higher would be considered pretty good for Bruce to be honest.

If they tell Bruce he has the skills and oppertunity to be a top 120 pick, I can see him leaving if he really said that and believes that.

For those curious, pick 120 is the 24th pick of the 4th round.

Same for Ace right? He jumped with that grade, and you know Bruce will ask him for advice.

Keep in mind he's graduated already. That may be a factor in his decision.

I think he would fit in really well into Chip Kelly's offense up in Philly.

If he stays then he can devote all his time to football and not have to worry about going to class, or getting cut from an NFL team.

Not a huge deal. Believe it's only 6 hours and if he doesn't grade well a Masters is good to have. Plus the average NFL player only lasts 3 years and makes 800k. Great to have a Graduate degree to fall back on.
