I believe the consensus opinion is that he is still somewhat raw and lacks ideal upper body strength. He's probably better off staying but it obviously isn't my decision to make.

 

You can say that about a lot of guys who go to the league anyways, do you think that knock would just simply keep him out of the first round?

 

I can see some teams in shambles grabbing him. I hope the colts can snag him if he's around in rd 2.

A number of mocks have the Redskins grabbing him, seems to be mostly based on size, potential, and the speed of his first step. But this was before the NFL released their grades. Not that it's all about the money, but if I were him and the chances were greater to be a 1st round pick next year I would definitely be coming back. The difference in money for a high first round pick and a low 2nd rounder is crazy

Saw him #5 on a mock draft. Hope he comes back. He had a solid year but could have a great year next year teaming with McGlinchey.

 

The relationship between Stanley and the left guard is far more important than his work with the right tackle...

If I received a "stay in school" mark from scouts, I would heed their advice unless his family is dealing with financial hardship because an NFL contract and roster spot regardless of draft position would obviously be an immediate boost, even if they leave some money on the table by entering the league prematurely.

 

I didn't think Tuitt was ready either and despite multiple 1st round projections, he dropped to the middle of 2nd round then had a less than spectacular rookie season.

 

In the end, the NFL draft is a crap shoot for both the teams and young players. Nothing is guaranteed but when it comes to being a student athlete at ND, I would enjoy the ride as long as possible.

Tint got a second round grade from the analysis

You missed my point Rocket. If you have two great tackles you can have a great line. Guards are much easier to come by. It's McGlinchey and Stanley that have me excited for next year.

Clearly you missed mine. Think Mr. Stanley wants Elmer lining up beside him? We saw what poor guard play achieves time and time again this season...
