I asked this about 5 pages ago, but no one answered, so I will chime in again. Has anyone picked up Victor Hampton in UDFA yet? Because if not, that is complete BS. Everyone here knows that guy can play.

Don't you think you would have seen a thread now about it?

Well, the answer is no, he has not been signed yet.

Cowherd went on a rant about the undrafted underclassmen, and basically said...

Congrats! No more free food, free housing, free education, free trainers, free equipment, and a stage to showcase your skills. Now at least you're not under that "terrible" college system of the NCAA. Enjoy the real world.

So Vic left early to not even get a look as an UFA? Good life decision there bud. If he doesn't get a FA contract I wonder if he goes to CFL or arena league?

He has a good point. People can say what they want about how the players receive nothing for playing for a school, until this kind of thing happens. Now you realize that you were actually receiving several thousand dollars worth of things if you add in food, lodging, travel, personal training and the ability to prove yourself on a massive stage in the SEC. Oh, and you get a degree which you can use to better your situation the rest of your life if you know how to play your cards right.

I feel bad for Victor Hampton, but hopefully his tale is a cautionary one for others. It was a risk to leave early this year and it didn't work out. Another year of staying out of trouble, trying to improve, might have done a world of good. It might not have, of course, but at least you exhaust your eligibility and give yourself the best shot. When that didn't happen, and buying your mom a car before the draft occurs, well I'm not going to pile on.

And get a degree. I know tat these guys take "easy" classes but a degree is basically a requirment for any type of job. At least he could have finished his education and gotten a 9-5 job if football didn't work out.

Yeah, I edited my original response because I didn't really mention the degree which is actually worth a good bit if you use it properly.

See this is the issue now, Juniors can go to the NFL, they get projected in upper rounds, and have whispers in the ears about making the money, they head to the NFL, and boom chance they don't get on a team at all. Hate to hear this for Hampton, and even Quarles who had an outstanding year, at least he got signed on a team though.

There was a thread on here a couple of months ago talking about Nick Saban saying there should be a Junior combine. Guy has some great ideas, even being a great coach.

Put that combine a week , or two after the Conference championship game, and it lets coaches know which players will be sticking around, and which ones will probably head on to the NFL. It also has players like Hampton who didn't do to well at the combine realize he can come back and improve his game.

Hiding behind vague one-liners doesn't really bolster your claim that you have a coherent point.

He is under 6 foot and ran a 4.7 .. that's pretty much all that needs to be said.

I mentioned the draft party because it was on his twitter. I know he had some friends and family over for one if what he tweeted was accurate. I am sure that was very painful.

Yeah, I was thinking that the Bengals would have to end up giving him a shot. Not looking that way.

You know which team will though....
