DON'T BLOW IT SON ! I MEAN THAT. Life is tenuous. If I was him, I'd be walkin a line so straight that people would forget that "Bandit" noise.

I'm pretty sure the bandit moniker was for his play on the field...

He wasn't all that ! He named himself, and that is my point. Get humble Hampton, or go home.

he didnt time well, but i think he plays fast enough to be an nfl corner. this process was a humbling experience for him, we'll see if he has the right combination of effort and talent to make it. captain didnt time as well as hoped at the combine, got drafted fairly late and has carved out a nice career for himself.

Looks like he is gonna get a shot at punt return duty too. If he can stick there he'll get a roster spot for sure....many teams use a roster spot for good return guys that can also be a minor contributor at other positions.

It hurt to find out how far Quelcy and Vic dropped, I hate it for them.
I haven't seen anyone "holding a grudge" against players for going early.

What I have seen is a lot of fans correctly questioning why someone would go early when they're not a lock for a high pick. No one has questioned Clowney leaving, everyone knew he'd be at the top.

Fact is, a lot of players need that 4th or 5th year of development. Swearinger and Holloman are two guys who definitely benefitted from that extra year here. Too many people are locking into the mindset that players should automatically be "three and gone".

There's only so many openings every year in the NFL. If you're not projected as a very high pick, why not come back, get your degree, and work on refining your skills?

Bengals do a good job with head cases. Maybe he can learn from Pac Man

Absolutely he should've stayed, I was referring to posters earlier in this thread...they're pretty obvious to me.

Glad he got a chance!
