And which NFL team do you scout for that is drafting these guys? I would be VERY surprised if either go pro after next year.

Best case scenario, IMO

Rogers 1st round
Hunter 3rd round (not quite back to form from the injury)
Bray 3rd round.

Darick isn't reliable enough to be a first rounder and his hands are still somewhat suspect at times.

At the rate he's developing (due to injuries and lack of significant playing time his freshman year) I think Bray may be best served with 2 more years. Barkley and Wilson will probably be better prospects next year (at least) so waiting another year with good talent would probably help Tyler's draft stock.

I think Hunter will need two years to prove to the pro scouts he has fully bounced back.

Da'Rick had over 1000 yards this season and played half the year with no qb, and damn near the whole season with defenses focusing on him. The only thing that will cause him to not go in the top 15 picks is his attitude.

If Tyler has the kind of season he is capable of, barring no injuries to himself and to the wr's around him, he is one of the first 3 qb's taken.

Justin might have to stick around his senior year if he doesn't bounce back 100% from injury, but we all know what he is capable of.

Playing the devil's advocate: All three have the talent to go early. All three have questions left before going early.

Bray is not physically developed yet. He has not proven he can manage a whole offense, beat a quality team, or play a quality D without making bad throws/turnovers.

Hunter is still too thin. He has not proven he can play heavier. Some players never completely come back from knee injuries. What he was great at requires that he does.

Rogers drops waaaay too many catchable balls. He has not shown elite speed. He takes plays off and does not block well at all.


If these guys work hard, all of these things can be overcome. Maybe scouts would ignore them. But they have weaknesses that could concern NFL decisionmakers.

Spot on. Some people really overrate our players but you hit the nail on the head. Darick specifically is not near a first round talent yet.

He went to a Bowl practice back in December and had this to say.
Along with Clemson, UCF, N.C. State and Vanderbilt have offered.
“Clemson’s my favorite,” he said.
I'd like to see the staff get in on this guy.

He did not say they dont have talent. He said they are not the type to get drafted that high after only their junior year.

It's funny because out of the 3 I feel like Da'Rick is the third best but I think he is the only one that might leave after his junior season. You can't tell me that two straight 1,000 yard seasons and All-SEC performances on a crap team(at least one of the years) won't get him drafted in the first. He is a freak athlete at 6-3 215 also(guessing).
