We have had so many players leave early for nothing much over the years that I think this lesson is lost on most of our players. Obviously JC is the only player who should have left early this year.

If the NCAA strips the eligibility from players for declaring for the NFL draft after a certain time period - then I do not get mad at the runners and agents for pouring hiney in the players' ears. I fault the NCAA for not tweaking the system to avoid this. Seems like they could amend the eligibility rule for underclassmen so that they have the option of returning to college if they get drafted in the late rounds or go undrafted.

If they do not hire an agent, then they have recourse .................No?

I am fairly sure that Connor Shaw has an agent. Not sure about Vic and Quarles.

I completely agree. The other thing I have thought about is a reduced pay scale for those without a degree. Unfortunately, for a 22 year old, half a gazillion vs a gazillion probably doesn't matter.

We've had some that came back....Eric Norwood, Cory Boyd, Kenny McKinley, AJ Cann, and Corey Robinson.

Back to Hampton, Jr; and Kelcey...teams doing the picking felt there were obvious better players ahead of them....some hidden on rosters not many knew about. I'm a little surprised, but not shocked. Neither were dominant players.

Is it? Marginal talent with off field issues. What's unbelievable is that he thought he'd get drafted.

We'll wait a minute now, there were no shortage of posters just a few months ago that completely supported Vic's decision to bail on the team early? Boy they sure know how to clear a room fast. I guess they'll be back post bowl game when the next round of guys go for broke again next year.

Probably should have stayed out of that nightclub. Things that bite you don't always seem right. What's done is done. I expect Vic to do the work he needs to do to keep from losing his dream. Hope he gets a FA deal; if not check out Canada or any options available. He's got talent, and I expect he will keep trying and working hard. Hope his support system includes family, team-mates, fans, and others willing to help him keep on the path to getting to play. The other undrafted guys who signed have one step up toward making a team. It's a chance. If it doesn't happen for them, they will maker other plans.

Default Re: QUARLES AND HAMPTON SHOULD HAVE STAYED

Hampton didn't get drafted because he's a corner & ran very poorly at the combine. CB at the NFL level requires speed & lack of speed will kill your draft status in the eyes of the people who count.

Sad part is, Hampton plays much faster than his times. I recall very few times in his career when anybody just blew by him. Very few. At times he was very good in coverage, consistently solid & got beat badly only when he started free lancing for a brief period earlier in the year.

Off field issues are never a positive but the NFL has consistently proven year after year talent will trump all else. The guys who really pay a price are bubble guys, those issues can be the difference between being drafted or undrafted. Hampton never did anything,, that were it not for other factors, off the field that would have caused him to go undrafted. Lack of speed at the combine was the killer.

Hampton played plenty well to deserve a shot. I hope he gets it & I think he will.

I THINK that you have to have an agent in order to be allowed to declare for the draft.
