I would. It's worth $60 Million or whatever. If he gets hurt or plays worse like Locker he will drop and lose tons of money. And yes that can happen. He's not an absolute sure thing. He can get hurt too. And he can play worse minus some key players. Each year is different.

Luck is retarded he can always go back and get his degree, or just take classes in the off season. He may though have just missed out on $60 mil if there is a rookie salary cap with the new cba.
As Ive said, and everyone else who knows the NFL has said,
THE NEW CBA WILL 99% LIKELY CONTAIN A ROOKIE CAP This year.
Even if that wasnt the case, you're basically faulting a guy for not being greedy. Or for having self confidence. Since when are either of those two things bad character traits to have?
plus the fact he comes from money, his father, oliver luck, is athletic director of west virginia and was a pro qb. people are reporting he's already taking out an insurance policy for luck worth millions if he were to get injured. luck and his family have this all methodically planned out.
also has it ever crossed your guys' minds that theres more to life than money and football. word to pat tillman...rip
What do you think is the ultimate purpose in going to college in the first place?
For my part:
You go to college to earn a degree to make yourself more valuble when trying to get a job, to earn a living (read: money).
This kid has an excellent shot at being chosen #1 overall. Instant millions regardless of other plans. The NFL also has programs that allow a player to continue on and earn their degree (Norton Jr. did it).
In my opinion, every kid that has been a near consensus #1 overall pick that chooses to remain in college is an idiot. Bradford was just a lucky idiot (lucky his injury wasn't worse).
