It's Thursday and we've got the Your Best 11 Mailbag, which is always fun. Last week, we went all in on one question, but we're now back to the regularly scheduled program of multiple questions. Got some good ones this week so let's get into it.
With all the hullabaloo surrounding the Charlotte Observer's Jadeveon Clowney article from earlier this week, this question has come up a time or two. I don't expect to see it, especially not in the explicit terms given, where a kid just decides to forgo his third year and says he's going to work out and do draft prep.
However, I do think that other circumstances would lend themselves to guys being okay with not getting that third year of film in the books.
First and foremost, injury. We've already seen Sam Bradford, hurt during the season, elect not to comeback for that extra year to prove he's healthy. I definitely think that if a guy gets hurt in spring or camp, sitting out the entire year and doing draft prep is a real option. Knile Davis probably would have been better served leaving after 2011, even though he didn't carry the ball once.
