He has absolutely nothing to gain from staying in school. He could always go back for his degree but by not declaring for the draft at best he's costing himself MILLIONS of dollars next season. Even if he was the #1 pick next year he'd still most likely be subject to new rookie cap rules. At worst he jeopardizes his future. What if he's injured and can't play football anymore?
Just a stupid decision IMO. Nothing to gain and everything to lose.
He avoids playing for Carolina. That should probably be applauded rather than questioned.
You realize the worst team next year will get the top pick?
Yes, but Carolina gets the first pick this year, which is the year we are discussing. Carolina may get the #1 pick again next year, though.
Isn't the point that Carolina is currently the worst team?
Yes, so they get the first pick in this year's draft, which won't be Luck because he didn't declare. So, when TCIYM said he avoided playing for Carolina, he was correct. Why were you confused by that?
