    I suspect he will sit out the bowl game. Herm just said he "always sides with the player".

    No use blowing out your ACL in the Reno Purina Bowl when you're a first round talent.

    Bowl season is all about getting a head start on next season anyway.

    He declared for the draft, however, he hasn't made a bowl game decision yet according to what I read at arizonasports.com

    I'd be shocked if he played in the bowl game... Great kid. Great talent. Wish him great success!

    I guess sitting out bowl games is becoming the norm for NFL prospects. It seems arbitrary to me though. Who is to say a top prospect might not what to sit out more games when their draft stock is high. In time prospects might even sit out rivalry games.

    Bosa. He sat out more than the rivalry game...although he has an owwie. Eventually I think you may see the top of the top prospects sit out their last full season of eligibility.

    If this happens the NFL Draft will become even more of a crap shoot. However, players that would sit out risk dropping in the draft and those who play well may move up.

    I am thinking the very top players. Remember it want all that long ago that Clowney considered sitting out the entire season.

    If that were the case wouldn't they just declare for the draft prior to that season? Case in point - N'Keal Harry skipping his senior (4th) season and declaring. Why come back only to not play, that makes no sense.

    In Bosa's case, he did plan on playing for Ohio State this season, until his injury caused a re-evaluation.

    Why would you wish such an affliction on someone D)

    Are you implying Mel Kiper might just be a blowhard with a Brylcream fetish? D) D)

    Why wouldn't you just declare for.the draft? You'd deprive yourself of a year's pay. Your teammates would probably resent you taking a scholarship. Unless you're planning to graduate, which is highly unlikely.

    If you aren't eligible to declare a player may consider sitting out their last year if they are elite.

    IIRC a player has to be 3 years removed to enter the draft, so we're talking about college sophs. I opine most NFL GMs would frown on such a move unless the guy. (20 y-o) is a top 5 prospect. Too many variables. I think we all know a Ranger Rick who crushes it.on the practice range, then finishes 2,761 over par. :D
