My guess is they have a toss up between DaQuan Bowers (DE Clemson) and Nick Fairley (DT Auburn).

Locker is a late first round pick. Ironically Mallet might be a second round pick now, which is kind of sad considering the main cause of that drop was his performance late in the Sugar Bowl.

I have only watched Locker a handful of times, and like JC Snead I don't get the infatuation. Sure there is raw talent there, but Lockers passes in the bowl game weren't very crisp. That being said , he does seem to have a decent head on his shoulders, but he still throws INTS.

The window for a big guaranteed rookie contract is small.
The life span of a football player is also small. You can only take so many hits and so many snaps.
Ask a player like Herschel Walker who needlessly left his most productive years and physical ability in Georgia. Where nobody really notices or cares. By the time he got to the NFL his body was already on it's down side.
$50 million guaranteed goes a long way, even if he fails as a player. He could give up his scholarship and pay for the tuition himself if he wanted to, to finish his degree.

Maybe the guy actually is more than one dimensional and wants to earn his degree ASAP. Maybe he loves it at Stanford enough to want to stay there for his full term there. Also, he might have thought about the lockout possibility. Either way it is his decision to make. He is going to make big money anyway, maybe he just isn't so greedy.

People hated on LeBron for leaving Cleveland. They hate on Luck for staying. Only in America

Re: This Just In---Andrew Luck To Stay At Stanford

Everyone who says Luck is stupid for not taking the guaranteed money is the exact reason why this sport pays out the ass for unproven talent at the NFL level. I am so happy they are putting in a rookie cap. The amount of money these guys make makes me sick. I wish I could make a tenth of what they make.

Andrew Luck is making the right decision. I've been to Charlotte plenty, and it is no Northern California.

Only reason I am upset is that this might have pushed more talent down to us. Who knows though? If we blow more chunks next year than we did this year, we might be in a better position to pick him up and for a lower price.

Your right it's not northern California, its North Carolina.

Re: This Just In---Andrew Luck To Stay At Stanford

Im glad he is staying cause we were not going to get him any and I did not want us to trade up for him either. I would rather pick a qb late in the 1st round if we could trade back for more picks. If not maybe take a qb in the 2nd if he was worthy of the pick. I say we go with Rex and Beck or try to work it out with McNabb but we have so many holes to fill other than QB.

If I were the Redskins, I'd play every young guy I could, and try and lose every single game next year.

Really? It is better to wait a year and be drafted by, say, Buffalo or Cincinnati, rather than going to Carolina?

Don't say that Carolina is a struggling club. Luck is destined to be drafted high by some struggling club next year.

Personally, I'd rather play in Charlotte than in Buffalo.

Are we really that much better than those teams? I'd say we're "struggling" just as much as they are.

The question was about where Luck will play, not whether we are better or not than those teams.

He wants his degree, and I say good for him. That is what he is supposed to be there for, unlike these gangsta types that major in Phys Ed just to make it look like they belong. IF the NCAA really wanted to maintain academic excellence they should cut out the football scholarships and let the thugs play in a NFL farm system type league.
