    Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    Really? Seems like a weird decision on his part. Oregons offense doesn't produce NFL quarterbacks with the offense they run. Will he get drafted?

    Re: Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    He never struck me as a pro, especially one who needed to leave early.

    Re: Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    Wow... that's a shocker! He was more of a game manager than anything. The talent around him made him look better than he is. The only way I can see him getting drafted is maybe a 6th round pick to Denver for a Tebow back-up

    USC wins the PAC easily next year.

    I'm assuming there may be something behind this? Unless he thinks he's NFL ready...

    Re: Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    He's always looked accurate, but I don't think he has NFL arm, NFL size, nor has he made reads in an NFL offense.

    Not seeing it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    Joe schaad said it was because Thomas knew he would be in a qb battle next year with Bryce Bennett. Don't know how much I believe that story.

    I don't believe that at all. The guy led the team to 2 Rose Bowls and a NC game appearance. Even if the other qb was a little bit better, he wasn't getting benched in his senior year.

    Probably has more to do with his family and personal financial needs. Still probably a poor decision though. I'm sure he can essentially live for free on scholarship at Oregon. The extra year may have pushed him up the draft boards before he goes to the NFL and flops.

    Re: Oregon's QB Darron Thomas to enter draft

    Its the same thing the said about TEBOW. They said he couldn't be a quarterback, they said he couldn't lead a team to the playoffs, they said he couldn't make in in the league....

    Yeah, and Tebow didn't come out after his junior either.

    I will say that Thomas probably wasn't going any higher in the draft next year than he will this year. If he needs the money, it's not hurting him to come out early. I just don't think he'll be a high enough draft pick to warrant missing out on your senior season and graduating.
