Top TE Prospect Gresham Out for Season

Looks like another blow to Oklahoma's team.

That sucks. Gresham stayed in school to win a BCS Championship too.
didn't bradford convince him to stay? if bradford still goes in the first round and gresham doesn't, i'd be asking for some money!!!
The kid should've went pro....staying in school is overrated....because you can always go back and complete your studies.

maybe he stayed b/c he is a great competetor and wanted to win a big game before he went to the nfl and half of the damn game became about money
That will probably drop him out of the first round and depending on the rehab he will probably go in the second. Ingram dropped to 150ish last year due to injury but his was worse I believe.

It's a strong TE class.
draft him?!

Maybe....but he was a sure fire 1st rounder last year. He'll be lucky if he goes in the 2nd round I'm thinking more like the 3rd. He's basically sitting out a year so there's been no progression and teams won't know how well he'll do coming back from the injury....hell don't be surprised if it's the 4th.....that's losing a whole lotta jack.
maybe he should demand to be drafted in the 1st round and be paid like a top 5 pick even though he won't be picked that high.

I'm sorry if someone told me I would be a 1st round pick, much less top 5, there is no good reason to risk losing that kind of money. Now the worst case scenario happens, out for the year. All of these guys may still make great pros, but why take the chance. We're talking money that can set up families for generations, if handled right.

Only fair!!
Maybe well be able to get him in the 3rd or 4th. we wight need a recieving te if vernon doesnt step up this year.
havent players learned from leinart, bush, jenkins, laurinitis, and long. even though players like long and bush didnt drop all the others went back and didnt win a national title. leinart and laurinitis stock dropped after their senior yr. get your money while your stock is high and just go back to get your degree. if you win a title in your 3 yrs then great but if your a jr and your a lock 1st rder then get out.

If he is able to perform at the combine, he will probably go in the second...

But....Very few do.

I think this is one of the reasons we get so many "punks" in the league, coupled
with being treated like "gods" through High School and the two years or so in College.
