    Anyone else see the comment Haskins left on Weber’s Instagram about “one more year” or something along those lines? Kinda interesting. Although, I believe Haskins will leave.

    I saw that, and it's causing a lot of stir, but I think he'll leave too...and if he does...

    Weber is stupid for leaving......he is not a NFL running back

    I see nothing wrong with that decision. If he doesn't think his stock will go up, then why not? 

    Look around the league, lots of backs out there that were probably told they are "not NFL running backs."

    I agree, and he also knows Dobbins will continue to get the bulk of the carries--with Teague, Snead, Gill, McCall, etc. getting in on the action as well.

    He has a limited career...thats what is wrong.  He doesnt have any draft stock to worry about.

    So he should come back to school, not get paid, and risk injury? Fuck that. Go get paid. Even if he isn’t drafted, he’ll get picked up as a FA.

    Everything I've seen has him as a round three or four pick. I'd take the pay for that coming out of college.

    Yep. I would say that, due to fumbling issues this year, he might need to have a good combine to maintain that status (or not, I'm no draft guru...), but his odds are, in all likelihood, better this year than they'd be next year. From just one (local) source: https://scarletandgame.com/2018/12/17/ohio-state-football-mike-weber-dremont-jones-leaving-right-time/

    From reports I have read, Weber is seen as a mid-round pick and returning for one more season probably wouldn’t raise his draft status. That would require having a monster year and that’s not likely to happen. He would once again be sharing carries with J.K. Dobbins as well as with younger backs coach Ryan Day will be grooming.

    Also, NFL general managers always take into consideration how much a player at his position has been used in college because a running back tends to have a short shelf life in the pros. Weber has only had 493 touches in college which means he has taken fewer hits than other backs in the draft, and that should be a plus.
