Even if Clowney gets hurt during the first game he would still likely go top ten.
I sure as hell would.
I'm fairly certain Cam's contract was like Lucks as well. I think Bradford got the last huge rookie deal.
This is not a college problem. The NFL, NBA, MLB etc makes decisions on when they draft players. If they wanted to change it, they would change it. None of them like babysitting teenagers.
Matt Barkley probably should have done that.

What are the odds of a DE sustaining a career ending injury as opposed to a RB, though? You have to do a cost / benefit analysis involving the actual odds of being seriously injured, the possible money lost from taking a year off, and maybe most importantly the fundamentals that he's still yet to perfect. Many people forget that JD is still a little ways away from honing his craft. He relies a lot on pure talent and freakish athleticism. TN's OT exposed that a little.
There are a lot of variables to take into account here. It's not a simple question of sitting out and then cashing in.
Oh, and did anyone ever think that maybe......just maybe, that ...*gasp"... Clowney WANTS to play next year for Carolina since he can't go to the NFL anyway?
It's pretty sad that so many here think that he has no interest in reaching any of our team's goals. He sure did enjoy beating Clemson next year, and he seems to want to beat them again. I'm just saying, don't assume that he would be happy sitting home watching his team play while he played it safe.
So a stud high school junior with lots of offers should commit and sit out his senior year to protect his college future?
