    Interesting. I think there's still room for him to get even better at ISU, but if he and the coaches get a solid feeling that he'll get drafted in the early-mid rounds then I can't blame him for striking while the iron is hot. It's a brutal game and a small window to get paid.

    I hope he stays, if he has another monster year he could be a 1st or 2nd round pick.

    Not surprising. Hope he comes back, he's got to get that mechanical engineering degree ;)

    Hope he stays, but it certainly does not hurt ISU to have underclassmen getting attention from the NFL.

    I often wonder what kind of information that guys that get this feedback actually get. Is it a list of these are the things we are looking for and this is how you rate, or is it simply you should be drafted, or you can be drafted in another year if you can work on this and this.

    I think it's fairly limited and vague feedback the player and school get back from the advisory board, along the lines of "We think you could be drafted in the first round" or "We think you could be drafted somewhere in rounds 3-5" or "We don't think you'll be drafted." I guess this is based on their own evaluations of the player plus feedback from scouts and GMs around the league.

    He's a really bright kid. Seems like one that if honestly made the jump, would come back and finish his degree anyway. Wouldn't be surprised if he's close already with 3 years plus summers.

    Getting his degree should have nothing to do with his decision. He can always finish his degree and would if he left after this year. I do think he comes back though

    And, to be clear, my comment wasn't that he shouldn't go pro if he has finished his degree. More just hoping that he won't ;).

    I think that Charlie comes back but wish him the best with whatever decision he makes. If he would come back, he'd have a chance to be the first TE taken in next year's draft. It all depends on the feedback he receives this year as well because who knows, there could be talks that he'd be taken highly in this year's draft.

    That would be great if he could make the jump. We'll miss him next year, but it would raise the profile of the program. Love the Process indeed.

    Odds are good Charlie will be the top tight end in college football next year and put up some huge numbers. I would think he could really improve his draft stock with that kind of attention. But if the draft analysts tell him he'll make the top three rounds somehow he should do it, for sure.

    An argument could be made he's the top TE in this draft. It seems like a very thin class this year.

    I think he could come back next year and raise his status to be a first rounder, but don’t blame him a bit for leaving now if he can make money.

    I'll cheer for Charlie more if he stays as I'll see him in every game he plays.

    Obviously I want him to stay for another year at ISU but I’ll be happy either way. The dude is a beast and will be successful with whatever choice he makes. If he gets a top 3 round grade, it’s a no brainer, you have to go.

    Really like what Charlie does for this team, but I suspect that the NFL guys are going to come back and say that he needs to get bigger, stronger and become a better blocker to be an NFL TE. If they tell him he is a high draft, than he should go, but there are certainly some holes in his game.

    I think it should at least play a factor. Yes, sure he could always come back but its hard to leave something for 5+ years and then come back and try to figure out where you were. Especially Engineering. It would take a little while to catch back up, even for a kid as intellegiant as he appears to be.
