    Clay has the option? Seems like he's been in school forever, thought he was a senior this year.

    Re: Official Declared Juniors Thread

    DB, help me out here. Why in the world would any Junior declare at this point? Yes, there will be a draft but it is my understanding there will be no rookie contracts without a new CBA as well. So not only will they not be playing football, but they'd have to solely rely on other income such as endorsements, etc. Is that correct?

    Great question, the answer is that they are weighing risk v. reward. There is speculation that regardless of a lockout or not the CBA may give a one year waiting period till the rookie cap is installed, not guaranteed but its a consideration.

    So if you fear that you wait, risk injury, and potentially come into a rookie cap league then maybe you leave early and potentially sit out a full season.

    That certainly makes sense. Thank you.

    Re: Official Declared Juniors Thread

    Just a head-up, DB, apparently a couple juniors at PSU are thinking about going pro. Nothing official yet, they'll probably put their names in with the advisory committee, but I'm guessing they won't hear good things back. The main name I've heard is Devon Still (he's got a kid he needs to support). I wouldn't be surprised if Derek Moye (said he was coming back) and D'Anton Lynn put their names in with the committee either, but that's mostly my own speculation.

    Out of curiosity, if Still did enter the draft, where would you see him being picked? I think he'd be a decent 3-4 DE, personally, but I thought that about Odrick too and I know you disagreed.

    Sorry to put this in the "official" thread, wasn't sure where else to put it without starting a new thread (which seemed to be a waste).

    DB,

    Did you say you did not like Odrick as a 34 DE? I am just wondering why.

    USC DT Jurrell Casey and OT Tyron Smith, both first-team All-Pac-10 players, are entering the NFL draft, bypassing their SR seasons.

    Not a fan of his ability to stand up at the POA on the outside when dealing with more athletic OT's.

    Both have 1st round potential. Casey is higher rated as of now, but watch Smith, his stock could sky rocket.

    You are correct Tyron Smith will be high on a lot of draft boards come April.

    He's 280 right now isn't he? I see Bunting compares him to Ferguson, but would a team put a top ten pick toward a guy who cannot block anything but zone?
