His defensive coordinator Phil Snow loves to see young guys make that jump, if they are ready.
“It’s just not whether or not you can play or not,” Snow said. “Are you ready to go in there because once you get in the league, guys, you’re not babysitted anymore. And so the first contract, you’ll make some money. But the second one is when you make the big money. And so they’ve got to be ready to be able to play in that league for a while.”
Draft-eligible Juniors will have until January 20th to declare for the NFL
