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

    • And by that measure, he's going to want to draft a replacement for Rhodes, Doyle, and possibly Glowinski (Pinter?).
    • Ballard made the responsible decisions in FA period by filling holes that had blanks so if the draft totally fell apart, he could still field a team.  It wasn't really about getting better through free agency.  The OT signings are strictly backup material or being able to start someone come week 1.     I don't think the quality of the free agents signed has any bearing on how much he's going to want to draft a LT.  And its a lot, IMO.   I also think he's going to want a plug n play DE.  No projects or ceiling guys but a day one starter who has experience in their college career.  Basham or Payton Turner fit that mold  They are the most like Autry, who left.  Choosing not to match Autry's contract tells me he's probably figuring on getting the replacement in the draft.  (maybe Lewis?...I doubt it) The other edge college candidates all seem to be replicates of Turay/Banogu, athletic and high ceiling but raw and with questions.
    • i think part of what we will be paying Leonard and Nelson for is their leadership on the team.   Both have great character and are respected by the players on this team.  They both make other players play harder and better.   That just cannot be replaced easily.  
    • Ballard drafts 2-3 years down the line. So they were definitely needs...we just don’t see those future needs and/or aren’t privy to their true roster construction goals.    But Smith was definitely not meant to be depth...he was drafted to be the starting RG.   Hines was drafted to add a pass-catching RB to the RBC they were building.   Okereke was drafted to take Walker’s spot because he didn’t fit the defense.   Taylor was drafted to make the offense more explosive. They talked about it all  that offseason...so taking a RB early shouldn’t have been the shock that it was...especially with Mack entering his final rookie deal season and missing 2-4 games per year. I don’t think Mack is supposed to still be here...he was supposed to have a good season and net a decent comp pick.   Similarly to Taylor and Oke, Blackmon was drafted to replace Hooker, who didn’t fit the defense and was supposed to net a comp pick in FA.   I think you might even see Ballard draft a S again this year, though it likely won’t in the first two rounds. But it could happen.   Really there are a few positions he could draft early. But I am certain they will take an OT at some point early.
