    I think it was a very smart decision. I hope he stays healthy and productive all next season.

    Like Ochmed, I think that this kid made the right choice. Not just from a standpoint of gaining experience either. From a financial standpoint as well. Herzlich had he come out this year, was not guaranteed to be a 1st round pick. Next year, because of all the junior talent that is declaring, he stands to be a 1st round pick and possibly a top 10 pick.

    Next year, BC will no longer have the two studs (Raji and Brace) in the middle of their DL so Herzlich will be gameplanned for by the opposing offenses so he might not have a better year.

    It's a calculated risk not to come out. But chances are he can improve his stock. He certainly wouldn't want to be getting 2nd round money. The difference in contract and signing bonus is huge.
