I believe he graduated earlier this month, I don't think staying at Clemson is an option for him anymore.

He can stay if he wants to, he still has eligibility left. Whether he does or not is a different story.

 

But its not a matter of he can't.

as W87r said he can, he could go get his master's. He has only been in college for 2.5 years

I wonder if the likelihood of going to Jacksonville vice NYJ will prompt him to declare and "go pro". Staying in school for another year definitely has it's risks, not only potential injury but if he stays as the top prospect, who knows where he'll end up getting drafted to (Bears, Jets, Lions, Broncos, Washington, Jags are all possibilities)

Or we unexplainable IR Phillip Rivers on a supposed neck injury, trade away Brissett, and let Eason play out the year so we get the #1 pick.

 

Deja Vu

Not gonna spend 20 plus million on Philip to "ir" him.   JB won't be here,  so we can't trade him.

I hope Clemson and Alabama play for the championship. And the Tigers are down 6 driving with under 2 mins. Then Trevor accidently trips and fumbles the ball at the 1 yard line, ending their hopes at a championship. How in the world could he leave after that?! :lol:

Because he already won a NC last year

there just are not many good reasons why Trevor would go back to school now.  he graduated and has a Championship

 

The Jaguars are not much worse than a typical team picking #1 and they are close to where he grew up.  Hes probably going to declare

he is the best prospect since Luck just cause he retired early doesn't make his hype any less than it really was. Luck was called the best prospect since Manning so how could Lawrence be the best since Manning when Luck was in between them.

This topic isn't about luck but luck wasn't even the best QB in his draft class as it turned out. And a case could be made that Cousins is 2nd best? What luck was was Overhyped,  as was RG3. 

 

Anyway, our division is getting interesting to say the least.

It was a joke,  harkening back to 2011 when we released peyton, IR'd Collins, and had Painter finish the season.  Leading to us drafting Luck.

Because Wilson is still in the league and has proven he is a franchise QB now, he was the best of that class but Luck was still 2nd easily. I like Cousins but no, he isn't Andrew Luck. Luck is better.

He's definitely coming out. Can't pass up that kind of cash, although Jax makes it harder than it should be :).

 

Although I'd hate it if he's great because it hurts my team, it just makes us have to keep pace and draft well and develop guys too compete. If not then we become the Jags of the division.

Just gotta hope you bottom out at the right time if you know what I mean.

 

Getting a top 10 pick in a crappy QB class happens all the time unfortunately. 

 

For now, I'm cool with retreads for a few years (Ryan,Stafford, Rivers types).

Just because someone is still in the league,  doesn't mean they're better, especially since luck retired. 

 

They're different QBs. Wilson relied on a better defense to win his championship.

There's an abnormally large number of them available right now, so it's a good time for that approach

 

You can easily rattle off 5 or 6 names the Colts could legitimately get and be effective for us next year

I actually agree with this somewhat because Luck at his peak 2012-2014 I would rather have had and I agree when Wilson won his SB he had a stacked D and Lynch running the ball. My point with Wilson, he grew since then and has put up solid numbers and has carried the Seahawks a lot the last few years. Also he has played longer, it is unfortunate Luck retired early.

i dont see it that way at all.  he might be a little over hyped but that wont make him a bust.  Luck was probably over hyped a bit, he would have needed super bowl wins to live up to that hype train

Luck was great for 3 years (2012-2014) and was great in 2018, he just was to beat up by the time Ballard took over. Trevor has a chance to be great but the team he is going too could ruin him. Look at Burrow, already a massive leg injury.

Luck was good but the hype for him coming out of college was pretty huge.  i dont think ive seen anything like that for another nfl player.

For his career, I would say very good but not great so there is a difference but he was injured a lot. He was great from 2012-2014 IMO. He just didn't have a Line then or run game.

He's coming out BUT may pull an Eli and refuse to play for Jville (Franchise is in shambles) forcing them to trade for multiple compensation and they will be offered the sun and the moon for him.

Any QB that gets drafted by the Jags, Jets, or Bengals is doomed. or even Bears haha

    • It's just an example, we had Money and edge free agents, TB with no money resign Barret. Those types of "no movement" is something that I don't like. Remember when we wasted some Manning years with horrible defenses? Yes, sometimes agressive FA pays up. Lawson was a example. Expect turay and Lewis to have breakout years is hope, not plan.
    • I think it’ll be closer to 5/80-83    
    • I hope so   I do think as you get later and later on the LT spot, the more likely they arent going to be ready for day 1   I do think that Eichenberg MIGHT be there As well as Leatherwood, and Christianson (BYU)   Eichenberg may be the most ready for NFL (Day one), but  All 3 may need some polish before they start at LT
    • At 21: Radunz is my favorite option to get the most important need filled right away with a stud OT.  I love his game, he's got some nasty to him and good feet, moves really well in space too he's my kind of OT.  Rankings are all over the place but this guy probably won't make round 2 and he's my favorite OT in this class.  Need plus value here IMO.   At 54: Friermuth is my favorite TE in this class.  Now I realize everything's about measurables and athleticism and everyone's swooning over Pitts who is a fine prospect.  But guys like Friermuth who bring a safe target across the middle that DBs will bounce off of offer a lot of value to your QB.  When this guy gets the ball in the secondary you can see the DBs hate taking him on.  Guys like that can have a wear down effect on a secondary which will always have value even in an age where speed is more valued than ever.  This would be need plus value as well.   At 127: Amari Rodgers is going to be a fine slot receiver in this league.  Teams will feel him right away too.  Good chance he goes off the board before this point but him being in play here is a testament to the depth of this class, which means there are other options to finish up your WR room with this pick no matter how this draft goes down.   CB and WR have multiple guys I like in rounds 3 and 4, as both groups are very deep.  I think from an efficiency perspective getting those two rooms some help makes sense in those rounds.
    • If I added .....  Realistic pick at 21 vs overall favorite   I would say Paye, Darrisaw, Jenkins, in that order   If all 3 are gone .... Im trading the pick for more picks
