Didn't Bowers go number two overall? I don't believe he cost himself much money. In fact, I think he really improved his stock by staying and having the year he did.

At one point he was projected to go #2 overall but I believe he went in the 50s.

You are absolutely right, I COMPLETELY forgot about that. and I thought whoever got him that late was getting an absolute steal, turns out, I was wrong. He's been a bust so far.

And that's just in those minute long blurbs I hear on the radio and on the local news sometimes.

Do you really think that the same man who said HIMSELF Nuk should stick around isn't re-recruiting the heck out of his players?

Feel free to agree with it if you want, but why deny it?

I read that Vic Beasely was recruited as a running back and has only played DE for two years now.

With regards to Hopkins, the kid was playing basketball like Bruce Ellington. Nuke Hopkins never devoted any time during the off season with the exception to his last year at Clemson.

I understand Dabo's view point, but if these guys are guaranteed a 1st round pick, why wait any longer and risk injury. We saw that cheap shot at Clowney by the UNC player back in September and the cheap shot at Lattimore by the Tennessee player.

If a kid can go 1st round, then they should leave and cash out.

He won't improve his stock with another year. He might pack on weight and improve technique, but he won't improve his draft position.

I'll give Dabo this, he's a hell of a salesman.

He's an idiot if he stays. Teams will double him like they did JD. It will only expose him for the pass rushing specialist he is. His draft stock will only go down. I bet he slips to a late 2nd rounder if he comes back.

clowney himself disproves that theory...the guy was doubled all year..sometimes tripled but will still go in top 2..great players arent penalized for that.

Clowney is the exception because he is 6'6 270 and runs a 4.5. He is a once in a generation athlete. You can't compare him to anyone.

Clowney had a productive year despite the lack of stats to show he was constantly in QBs faces forcing early decisions

Spiller increased his draft stock. Beasley won't play DE in the NFL so he could use another year learning techniques that will help him at that level playing OLB.

Not is confirmed yet either, just speculation. We will know within the next two days though. Will be nice if he stays and we only lose Breeland as the only junior leaving the defense early!

I agree %100 that he could use work on technique, everyone could benefit from that. But, do you think staying will help his draft stock specifically?

SO does that mean that Beasley will be playing LB next year and not end? If that is the case I can see him staying...if he was sold on that idea, I can understand. However, if he remains at DE, I will once again think tha Dabo does what is best for Dabo. Only time will tell in this case...

However, it is nice to see Beasley (3-star) transcending his high school rating!
