Dang - I think he's shifty enough and he has really reliable hands (esp on PR/KR). I don't recall seeing him muff punts. All that to say, I think his draft stock could climb with another year at LU. Especially if we can get more reliable QB play.

You might be right. Maybe not even that high.

I figured he would transfer to prove he can do it against better competition. Surely a P5 somewhere would be glad to have him.

He should 100% stay. There is NO way he gets drafted. BUT, after a great year next season with more dependable QB play - who knows...

Hopefully he doesn’t sign with an agent and is just testing the waters. Otherwise this is a devastating life decision

He's better off playing out his eligibility. He's definitely a late round pick in the best case scenario and then even getting drafted, his ability to make a roster isn't real high. That goes for most players, but especially kids from the G5 level. There's no better example than AGG, who was a better receiver albeit obviously a different type. Again, he's better off using up his eligibility in hopes to improve his draft stock but also to play as long as he can.

He gets drafted and is cut or doesn't get drafted at all and it's going to be sad his playing career is over. Better off playing another year MINIMUM or 2. Your college years fly by and they are gone and your opportunities to play football don't last forever. I think he's making a mistake but hopefully it works out for him

Good stuff. Thanks for the update. Does seem to fit the Patriots mold of undersized shifty slot guys.

Worst advice ever.... Still will have a lot of question marks, and a good game would have pushed him up. Practice won't do enough to gamble one of a team's picks.

I dunno. If I’m him I take the advice of the highly trained professionals with years of experience in his particular field of endeavor

Probably right, but we just can't believe it better to get chosen to play in a game like this and then after practice - you're like "nah - thanks for the practice and invite" I'm going to sit out because I ran great drills this week. Only scenario I sit for would be that the Falcons promised to draft him... But even with that - I would trust them.

Pop showed very well at the combine. His best bet to make a 53 man roster is going to be as a kick returner...but I think with measurables like that he can keep himself on a roster as a receiver and a kick returner

Will be the best slot in the NFL if He goes to Patriots.
