    Quick, everybody send him the youtube links for Gilmore and McGahee's injuries. Also sorry all you Eric Fisher fans.

    This makes Eric Fisher vs. Lane Johnson at the @seniorbowl even more critical...could be competing to be the No. 2 OT

    Doesn't really matter because we weren't going to get him anyway. I do feel bad for teams that needed a blue-chip LT like Arizona though. With Matthews staying in school as well it looks like this draft is pretty weak for the tackle position (outside of Joeckel of course).

    It matters because that is one less player that will go before our pick. Pushes players up.

    I'm not going to say he's making a mistake. It's his life, do what you want to do. But I don't think he'll improve his stock much staying another year. He's top 10 right now, IMO.

    Staying in school and graduating is more important to some guys than getting paid right now.

    I applaud any guy that spends a whole career at a college.

    I don't think he will up his value much. I would take the money now. An injury next year, could ruin any chance of a big payday. He can always go back and finish his education.

    That's what I would do. I'm not risking my chance at cashing that NFL paycheck. Education can be addressed later.
