Why He Should Wait

With all of the abilities I said he had in the last slide, it would probably make many wonder why he should even wait. But the reason is as simple as he hasn’t put all of those abilities together yet and it’s best to put it together in college first. He  just wasn’t able to put it all together his year because he was in and out of the lineup with an ankle injury.

That robbed him of production as well as those valuable reps that develop you as a player regardless of your position. He really needed that development because this year is the first year he dedicated himself to just football. He had been spitting time with basketball at the University of Oregon all the way up to when he quit and the beginning of 2014.
