    Barkley is a top 5 pick.

    Other than that it’s too early for me to start looking at the draft
    F#*K OHIO!!!

      It's a good time to tee up prospects so if there's a somebody in a bowl game I can try and watch them a little bit.

        The top picks are not going to participate due to possible injury excuses.
        I long for a Lions team that is consistently competitive.

          The draft is 7 rounds long. I'm sure there will be a few guys participating that might get picked. And nobody is skipping the CFP and those 4 teams are loaded with talent that will be drafted in the first 3-4 rounds.

          At this point I believe there have been 2 potential first round guys that announced they won't play. There will probably be a couple more, but it won't be this sudden crush of guys skipping.

            Some* top prospects will likely play. Unless I’m missing something, I haven’t seen that many top guys announce they are skipping the Bowl game.
            Go Detroit Lions!

                Yeah....if you’re a 1st rd pick and you’re not in the playoff there’s no incentive to play in the bowl games. It’s a good business decision

                  For 3-4 years, these kids are nothing but a tool colleges use to make money while grossly "underpaying" them for their contribution to the school's revenues.

                  So, yeah... I'm not going to fault any of them for making a sound business decision and hold themselves out of irrelevant games where they can do nothing but lose money by getting hurt.

                  These schools should have thought about "school pride" before shafting their players for years.

                    99.9% of these kids will never step on the field of a NFL football game, the sound business decision is to get the education they are providing.

                      Well, I suppose it's a good thing I'm talking about the 0.01% of kids who are sitting out of their final bowl game, huh?

                          Not much of an argument about kids deciding to sit. HOWEVER, there will be some top picks that decide not to. Hence, we will be able to see some top prospects participate in bowl games and this thread is a good discussion.
                          Even with some top prospects sitting, there are lower rated players that won't sit and will be fun to watch.

                            Glad to see people beginning to acknowledge the exploitation involved in college sports. Football being the worst offender.

                              I wish I was young enough and had the skills for a school to grossly under pay me with a 4 year degree.
