Rice going to NFL...


Well he must be projected as a Top 10 Pick for the draft because he stated that was the only way he was going to go pro. I hate to see him go and thought he needed to stay for one more season....but that is football. Kids these days....

Rice had eight catches for 139 yards and one touchdown in the Liberty Bowl, giving him a school-record 11 100-yard games, breaking the mark of Sterling Sharpe. He also holds the school record with 23 touchdowns while also becoming the first player to have more than 1,000 yards receiving twice in his career. He had 1,143 yards last year and 1,090 this season, and his 2,233 yards rank him third all-time behind only Zola Davis (2,354) and Sharpe (2,497).

Oh well, I wish him luck in the NFL and for USC this opens up some "pt" for others and should make it interesting for the o-fence. Maybe it will make Mitchell better because he can spread the ball around rather than making sure #4 gets his looks / touches.

Any thoughts about Rice making the leap?? Good or bad?

Bad bad bad

If Jarrett and Johnson leave early I don't see Rice going until the 3rd round. Granted Troy was lucky, and fast, but if the Vikings could go back in time do you think they would take Troy again.

I don't think so

Rice has great hands but lacks the speed of the other WR coming out early. This should hinder him at the combine and might even drop his draft stock even more.
