I could be wrong, but I think he said that when Kyle was starting for Clemson that he could "start for half the teams in the NFL." I don't believe he said he needed another year when he specifically said that quote.

At least Kyle had a backup plan....Pro Baseball. Looks like he is being groomed for 1st base for the Rockies.

Keep acting like Dabo is a total joke, meanwhile Clemson is laughing all the way to the bank.

I know Dabo plays a hand in these decisions and that hand is sometimes questionable, but he's doing something right.

Exactly. If his production goes down next year (almost guaranteed), he could slip way down the board.

He's not undersized when it comes to what he's gonna play at the next level. Anyone with a brain can tell you he'll be a linebacker in the NFL, he's a GREAT size for that.

My point is he's undersized for his position now, which makes his big year this year almost what I'd say "flukey". So if he comes back next year and only has 2 sacks with those measurables then he could shoot down the draft board.

Does nobody realize Clemson tried him at LB and he could not crack the two deep? He has been all over the field and found good success this year as a pass rusher, he better ride this wave.

I personally wouldn't say it was fluky, for the simple fact that he's a pure pass rusher. I don't believe he had a lot of tackles compared to sacks this year(which I might be wrong about). So he did well at what he's good at, rushing. He's definitely not an every down end, and he's not a run stopper. I also think he's hovering around the north side of 240LBS now, which is better than it used to be. But you very well could be right, next year he might get shut down, then what? Unless he just loves college ball and being a stud on campus, I don't see a reason to stay.

Default Re: Beasley staying

Was announced tonight that Beasley's still undecided. Will wait until the cutoff day to decide. If he holds a presser, he's returning because they always have the big celebration like with Spiller and Boyd. If he justs contacts Dabo, he's leaving which really should be a no brainer because his stock's as high as it will get as a high 1st round pick but selfish Dabo always begs and pleads with these guys. You can tell Bryant and Breeland packed their things as quick as they could and got the heck outta Cowtown. Beasley decided to have multiple face to face meetings with Dabo. I can see Dabo (like the car salesman he is) saying "What's it gonna take, Vic". Spurrier lets his players make their own decisions but Dabo has to put the guilt trip on his guys. All about Dabo.

I just don't know why he would stay...he is never going to get taller, probably not going to get faster, and he had a great season.
Strike while the iron is hot and go get paid. He gets virtually nothing by coming back next year.

You conveniently forgot to mention that Parker took a signing bonus pay cut from the Rockies in order to play college football in 2010 (thanks to Dabo's pressure and stupid press quotes saying Parker could start for half of the NFL's teams). This turned out to be a stupid move because Parker had no NFL future and couldnt keep the Clemson starting job by season's end in 2010. Once again, Dabo is all about Dabo's interests. You know Parker would love to have that money back.

Me personally, I'm always happy for Carolina players that turn pro regardless of their remaining eligibility. Wished Ace the best last year and wish JD, Quarles, Hampton and Ellington the same.

Actually though it's the taters that use your reasoning. I remember after the Capital One bowl two weeks ago, Thurn on WCCP was saying Ellington needs to turn pro because he's not getting any taller but Beasley needs to return. Seriously, James? So one more year is going to add 4 inches and 40 pounds to Beasley's 6'2 235 pound frame so he becomes Clowney's size and a top five pick? What a joke.

Well I think we all on this board would agree it would be dumb for Quarles to come back along with JD, Vic was borderline and I think some would tell Bruce strike while you can, you won't improve any. I wanted all but Vic to go,

Breeland for Clemson is making a mistake by leaving early. Beasley would be making a mistake if he decides to stay. He is a 1st round pick who could crack the top 10. He may be leaving $15-20 million on the table. In no world is that not a mistake. If we have a 1st rounder who is thinking about coming back I'll be the 1st to want him to get the hell out of here because they need to strike when the iron is hot. The iron won't get hotter for Beasley.
