You go to college to prepare yourself for a career in your chosen profession, passing on that career and seriously risking your future with a possible injury, just shows how immature you are. Ask Leinart how that worked out???

Matt Leinart who was still drafted in the top 10?


Quote:
It cost Leinart millions after he returned to school and it exposed him as a party boy who wasn't committed to his sport.


How many QBs who came out as RS sophomores were successful in the NFL?It's a huge risk and a huge jump to leave after only two years of playing.

Quote:

If you are a true franchise QB, jumping to the pros will not impact you a whole lot, it might even improve yourself a lot more getting pro level coaching that is committed to making you the best pro you can be.



Staying in school to improve your craft is a shrewd move to give yourself more experience and reduce the risk that you just aren't ready for the NFL. You balance that against the risk of injury.

Quote:

The coaching at the NFL level where you learn how to be a pro far exceeds anything you will learn by staying in school and continue to be taught by a college coach who has little interest in teaching you how to better yourself as a pro, but is only interested in winning games at the collegiate level.


Pretending that it's a simple decision is narrow minded. There's huge risks either way.


The decision is simple in my mind. Either you want to be a great pro or are more interested in enjoying staying in college for one or even 2 more years, so you can enjoy the fun of college life. The coaching is far superior at the pro level and fully committed to teaching a QB how to be the best pro he can be, while college coaching is committed to winning games now with little regard to teaching a QB how to be a better pro.

Throw in the money and the injury risk of staying in college and the decision is a no brainer. Of course, if he isn't going to be a top 10 draft pick, then the decision becomes more complicated, because his game likely needs a lot more training and he might be better off staying in school, but I doubt that is the case with Darnold.

Whether Darnold declares or not is going to heavily depend on who has the #1 pick. He isn't going to Cleveland, Buffalo, or Jacksonville. If the Jets, Chargers, or 49er's have that top pick, then the odds of him declaring go up significantly.
