I dont know if his stock can get any higher than it is. While I can applaude him for staying to finish his degree, he is losing a golden oppourtunity to cash in big time. I hope this works out for him.

Wow, that's a shocker. They've got to be a favorite to contend for the NC next year.

This seems boneheaded to me. Isn't there a chance of a rookie wage scale in the next CBA, thus drastically limiting his earning potential? And, can't he go to NFL and finish school too? From a "business perspective", this seems foolish.

Ok, now the Skins should tank next year.
But yeah, seems like an odd choice.

Good for him. Maybe he actually likes what he is studying and wants to finish what he started. A long, fruitful pro career is not guaranteed. He could suffer a career-ending injury in his rookie season and then still have 40 working years left that he'd need something to do with. Not everyone wants to just sit around on a pile of money and contribute nothing to society.
Sincerely, person who got rejected from Stanford and is still slightly bitter about it

He would have so much money being the first overall pick that it wouldn't matter if he got a career-ending injury his rookie season. If his stock drops next year and he isn't the first overall pick and the injury happens, he would have missed out on millions.
Plus with all the time on his side, he would be able to go back and finish school and do whatever he wanted to do in life with all that cash.
But hats off to him wanting to stay. I hope it works out for him.

Also, I'm of the belief that there may legitimately be a lockout next season. And Peter King and Adam Schefter seem to think that rookie salary caps could come this draft, not next. That changes the whole equation.

Like I said. I agree with most of what you are saying, but he could lose a lot of money from this. Others have in the past.
And plus, if he got that career ending injury in his first year, he would only be 1 year older than every one around him when he returned to college.

He said that getting his degree was important to him.
Also important to him? Not playing for the Panthers.
