Does he not like money? Dumb move. He's going to Matt Barkley himself.

He likely would have been a top 3 pick based on athleticism and potential, but he's still got a lot to work on. He also just turned 20 so he's pretty darn young for a draft eligible plAyer. Hopefully he gets a nice insurance policy on himself.

I disagree. He's terrible against pressure and he's only a redshirt sophomore. The deck is stacked against him if he leaves early. This is the right decision.

Just saw it on Sportscenter. Instantly said to myself...I'll bet JSea is yelling: "Woohoo!!!".

Good for Mariota. Honorable move by a great kid who will benefit immensely with another year (if he remains healthy). The question now is: Can Marcus Mariota save UO from their downward spiral into the abyss?? ; )

After he destroyed Washington I thought for sure he was gone. That game was a masterpiece.

Then he got hurt. He already handled pressure poorly, and he can be a little inaccurate at times as well. At only the age of 20, there's plenty for him to work on. He's not ready for the NFL.

Grassu is back as well.

My thoughts exactly. I would never discourage a high pick from turning pro but you don't want a 20 yr old kid, with a few blemishes (not many), being thrown to a team like the Jags. That gets him a payday...but not necessarily another thereafter.

Yeah, athletically he is ready for the NFL, but as a QB.....he still needs some work. His footwork needs some work which if he improves upon that, it will help his other slight problem, accuracy.

Good for Oregon, and hopefully he really really enjoys this year because his draft stock with more film will take a hit.

β€œIt is an honor to be a student at the University of Oregon and to have the opportunity to represent our institution on the football field alongside my teammates,” said Mariota on the school's website. β€œI look forward to earning my degree next year and to the rest of my career at this great University.”

He needed another year pretty badly. The 2013-2014 QB group is fairly stacked as well. Even if he fails to fix his issues next season, he probably won't be battling 3-4 other first round prospects in 2015.

30 passing TD's, 9 rushing TD's and 4 interceptions. He did lose quite a few fumbles though. I think that's one area he needs to work on is being more secure with the ball when getting hit. He seems to fumble a lot more often then he should.

With Mariota back that means UO returns 10 starters on the O, if you count Marshall(6 starts) and Hunt(6 starts). That should bode well for UO, because honestly the end of the year they looked like a young team who didn't know how to bounce back after the L at Stanford. On d UO returns 7, assuming Ifo leaves.

I think this is the right move and don't see him becoming Barkley. He's too good and he'll have an even better year next year with maturity. Possible #1 overall pick in the '15 draft IMO.

Only if Jameis Winston is in jail on those rape charges. Otherwise Winston goes 1st and Mariota 2nd most likely.

Agree. I forgot about Winston.

Mariota did the right thing. He wasn't going early first round despite what Duck fans believe.

Every single mock draft I've looked at the last month had him in the top 5, usually top 2. So don't act like its just duck fans that think this.

I am a husky fan and think he would have gone in the first round for sure.

The same mocks that had Barkley as tbe first pick? Or all the ones that nailed EJ Manuel being the only QB taken in the first last year?

I am a husky fan and think he would have gone in the first five for sure after watchimg them beat us down. Then i saw him against Stanford and Arizona the Dawgz against Arizona State and UCLA and realized we suck.

You missed the point that it's not just Ducks fans. (I think he would've gone in the first because teams are so QB hungry, but I didn't like his chances in the NFL.) I left your first comment alone.

I said early first. I can't see any team wanting the first pick that needs a qb.

I had Barkley slated for late rd 2. He can thank all former Trojan QBs for that. Not being sarcastic, in fact complimentary (to SC). They clearly max the potential of their QBs, hitting their ceiling by draft day, IMO.

My opinion differs from people in here on this year's QB crop. They know what they are talking about, I just disagree. My QBs in this draft, in order, would be

Bridgewater
(Mariota)
Carr
Mettenberger, I would have above Carr, but don't know enough about the knee (atm).
Winston, Whether found guilty or not, I would still be concerned about his character.
Boyd
Manziel

I would not want my team to pick Manziel to be my starting QB. Nothing personal or off-field related. I just doubt he will last. He thinks he's Favre with the tough QB attitude, he's not and will get pummeled at the next level early and often. But I wish him well and will enjoy watching his magic while it lasts.

Ifo Ekpre Olomu also announcing tomorrow that he's coming back to Oregon for another season. He was also expected to be a 1st round pick.

Now we just need DAT to decide to stay.

Yeah they need to put a year in to study for the Wonderlic test anyway. :)



Sounds like a great Christmas Gift for you J.

Will be good at least to see what Peterson can put together against a good Oregon team, at least we will know how far up the hill we need to climb at UW.

Mariota is not a starting QB in the NFL, even if he stayed in for another 4 years.
