Default Vic Hamptons draft stock

I keep seeing people say that Quarles and Vic are leaving after this season. We all know Quelcy is going to go pretty high but what about vic?

Where would YOU draft Vic given his past 2 seasons?

Personally... I think he would be dumb to leave given what I've seen this season. Might be lucky to get drafted at all

He took a picture with SOS, Clowney, and the seniors this year on team picture day as if he already had his mind made up that he was leaving.

He's playing ok this year. Does well for large portions of the game then tries to make the big play only to burned for not staying with his assignment.

If he's already got his mind made up that he is leaving, I bet he bounces regardless of performance. What worries me is that if a guy has his mind made up, then academics start to slip, so even if they want to stay, they might be in a bad spot.

I think Hampton would get drafted before Quarles. Hampton has made some bad decisions, but I choose to believe it's because he's trying to make a play for his team or because of all the talk about the secondary as a whole. But when Hampton plays his assignment and only covers his man, the ball rarely gets thrown toward him, because Hampton can flat out cover like a blanket. He's the best pure cover corner on the team.

We have a track record of players leaving early no matter the cost, draft projections be damned. A lot of guys think they are world beaters and many of them have people in their ear feeding them a load of BS about how they should go pro as early as possible. Think Vic fits that mold?

I don't think Quarles has had a particularly strong season myself. IMO both would benefit from coming back for their senior season but if both went pro I think Hampton could very likely go higher than Quarles.

I'm wondering if anyone else feels the same way about these two guys, particularly in comparison to one another.

Default Re: Vic Hamptons draft stock

he has the potential, honestly i thought he played near an all sec level last year. this year hes just had a bad stretch of i guess 5 quarters starting with the getting burned on the double move vs ucf near the goaline. at this moment he'd be insane to leave early. who knows maybe he has a monster 2nd half of the season. really though its guesswork at this point of the season.

jonathan joseph had an awesome 2nd half to his 2005 season, ran a great 40 and suddenly he was a 1st round pick.

im not even sure it would be wise for kelcey at this point. he has very good numbers right now, but he needs to keep it up for the rest of the season and be a force beyond the numbers. right now one site has kelcey as the 6th best dt in his draft class, so if he came out early theres no guarantee he'd go earlier than the middle rounds either. let it play out though. we'll know if theyre ready or not by the bowl game.

Quarles needs another season to really grind it in our conditioning program. This year he did not come into the season in impressive condition. I also doubt he is drafted before Vic ... assuming he would be drafted at all. I am a huge Quarles fan btw. Love the guy.

DB is a premium position. If he leaves and gets a combine invite he'll have an opportunity to make a big jump. They'll draft on potential over performance at the CB position.

unfortunately once some of these guys get it in their head that they can be in the NFL whether they are being premature or not, there is just no going back for them in their heads.

I have a friend who works for the Atlanta Falcons scouting and he says Quarles has not played well this year. He feels he should come back. I didn't ask him about Vic. I think it is well known that Vic will leave regardless of his position in the draft.

I'm hoping they both will stay, would be good anchors for our defense next year.

Vic needs to stop trying to make it on Sports Center, stay in his lane, cover his guy and make tackles.

I think they both need another year.

At this point I don't think I would draft Hampton.

What I think will happen. They both leave. Quarles goes around round 5-6 and Hampton goes round 7.

Hampton is a good corner with nice ball skills. He gets burnt like every other corner trying to make a play and guessing wrong but not often, happens to the best corners. Has short memory like a good corner should and right attitude for the position. I still think Vic kept that receiver out of the end zone against Kentucky and it shouldn't have gotten overturned. They may have scored on the next play but Vic kept him out. Vic should go fairly high. I'd draft him at least in the 3rd round, 4th the very, very least.

What these guys need to let percolate inside their craniums is the FACT that teams are far more willing to cut a player that they drafted in the 3rd-7th round than they are to cut a guy they drafted as either a 1 or a 2. I think so many of them think to themselves "it doesn't matter which round I get drafted in so long as I get drafted at all. Once I get drafted I will prove myself to be good enough to make the team". But the problem is that the round you are chosen in has a HUGE impact on a team's decision to either cut the guy or keep him.

Yea Vic will go.
He is a fast guy and is aggressive and is a pretty physical guy for his size.

I see him as a nickel corner in the NFL, and with the way the NFL is going, you need three quality CBs. Hampton has all the talent, he just needs a coach to reel him in and help him play under control.

Regardless of what they decide, both have been unimpressive so far this year. Best thing for them to do is stay on for their senior year and fine-tune their skills. But I realize money talks.
