I think his coach getting fired may very well be the main reason. I am surprised he is leaving early for the same reasons you are.

He is very similar to Manziel, IMO. Not quite the athlete, but two inches taller and a slightly better passer. What I like most about him is that he has relied less on his feet and more on his arm each year. I also like that he has the closest skill set to Manziel in this draft but can be had way later. I would much rather take a risk on him in the 3rd or 4th than Manziel in the 1st.

FR - 2622 Passing, 20-11, 60.9%, 710 Rushing, 5.1 YPC, 10 TDs
SO - 2837 Passing, 27-6, 62.1%, 248 Rushing, 2.2 YPC, 6 TDs
JR - 3375 Passing, 29-11, 62.7%, 573 Rushing, 4.6 YPC, 4 TDs

I saw an article today that basically said he made his decision on a whim. Didn't put his name into draft evaluation and has no clue where he's getting drafted. Just decided to "go for it". He said it has nothing to do with the new coach, but his actions say otherwise.

If that's true then he either thinks he's going higher than he probably really is or he just wants out of Wyoming.

He said he just wants to be an NFL QB. That's his dream. I guess nobody informed him that he could go back for his senior year, get drafted higher, and still be one. He said he'll be happy just to make an NFL roster as a QB. No ambition to start or be great, just make it. That's admirable to reach his dream, but I want my QB to have a little more ambition than to "just make it".

totally depends on the organization/person doing the mock. Many already speculate on the players coming out, some wait until they declare, a few wait until the list is official from the NFL.

What are your thoughts on Amaro? I think the dude looks like a beast and has great hands, but besides Crabtree and Amendola I've been wrong on basically every TT product, but even Amendola didn't get drafted so I was still wrong there.

I know he's been arrested, but I think it was for something like using a fake/stolen Credit Card to get drunk, which I imagine money solves those kinds of problems.

IMHO Amaro's on field production is worthy of 1st RD consideration. My #1 TE is Sefarian-Jenkins. My wish is for Ebron and Amaro to go in Rd1 and if by chance and I think it's a good chance that Aaron Donald goes before pick #33, Sefarian-Jenkins would be my B. Choice for the #33 pick.
