Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Travis Etienne
O.city 10:15 AM 11-19-2019
So if the Chiefs are drafting in the late first round and he's sitting there, thoughts?

I'm usually anti RB early, but I've kind of changed my tune seeing what these dudes that can catch and run can do for an offense.

I think he can be a Kamara type dude and in this offense that would be fun.

cool, lots of guys graduate after they leave for the NFL. They go parttime during the offseason and take online classes and stuff.

No need to put another 300 carries on your legs.

In a year of a ton of backs he's considered a niche back....he may think that he has better value in next years class.

It's a HUGE risk.

That's the only reason I can assume

LSU's QB will be gone so lots of their Junior players are jumping ship. Clemson will still have QB Trevor Lawrence, so it seems like more of their players are staying for one more National Championship try.

Usually though bottom line is money, but I don't see Travis Etienne making more money by staying. He will probably be a 1st or early 2nd round pick either in 2020 or 2021. (If he doesn't get hurt)

New CBA might mean more money.....

He could still do that if he leaves early. This is really dumb. No other way around it.

Etienne is only 20 years old still so I guess he'd rather wait a year and possibly get drafted In the first round next year and make better money. Because this year he was most likely gonna be behind Swift, Taylor and Dobbins which means he may have fallen to the third round maybe. Now him and Chuba Hubbard have a great chance to go higher next year.

Hubbard is going back to college?

Man, these decisions. A rookie contract is worse case a 4 year $1.6m ish deal (I know you can get cut before that)?

This is like winning $400k on a slot machine and taking it all and putting it on red immediately afterwards.
