I'd never bash a former CU player, but I'm a bit unsure of what kind of advice he is receiving from agent/NFL scouts. Needed his senior year in my opinion, but good luck.

Agreed, Ray Ray definitely needs another year. He needs to prove he can hold on to the ball, believe he'll be sorry! Hope I'm wrong!

He kind of reminds me of Ted Ginn Jr. They're around the same size, both have a lot of speed, and both seem to have issues with hands from time to time. If Ted Ginn jr made it I think Ray Ray can. He just needs to be invited to the combine and he needs to show out. If not I can't see him any higher than the 5th or 6th round tbh. He's a great player that fit into our scheme well but I'm not 100% sure how he would fit in an NFL scheme with his size.

Re: Whaa???

Think of it this way...he was being asked at the beginning of the season how'd he feel about playing on the other side of the ball. He had a pretty good season and maybe wants to go out on top of the position he likes the most. Good Luck Ray Ray!

Would it be much different for him if he waited a year?...


Jan 7, 2018, 1:18 PM

It is a decision he has made based on discussions with his family and the coaches.
There may not be much more he can do to raise his draft stock....we have so many options on offense, it's not like he was going to do more statistically.
I wish he was staying for our team's sake, but am happy for him.

For scott’s Size he isn’t the fastest or the quickest. Yes he has good hands and a tough runner and route runner but ray ray on the other hand is quicker and faster than Artavis and has similar size and a more dynamic return man than Scott was believe it or not. Scott was more reliable but ray ray is more of the playmaker and playmakers rarely go undrafted.

Everyone comparing Ray Ray to Tay Scott...Saying he is going late . I think he will run in the 4.4's . Remember Tay ran a 4.61 or he probably would have gone higher. I think Ray Ray will show out in all areas at the combine . BTW i am not saying Ray Ray is better than Tay just that he will get drafted higher .

Ray-Ray can’t improve his size by coming back another year. At the end of the day you can’t change some things God gave you by another year of “training” for the league. He has good enough speed to play at the next level and his ball skills are better than Cain’s. Look at the tape from this past year. He made plenty of contested catches and some that I never thought he would be able to make. We all remember his short comings of dropping a few punts and dropping the ball before crossing the goal line a few years ago, but he has accomplished all athletically he could accomplish in college. I wish him the best!

We all should never have a negative comment about any player leaving early bc there is nothing any fan can do or say to change their minds. They are the ones that will have to sleep in the bed they made for them selves. I wish the very best for them I really do. But if they fail after leaving early with another free year there for them, please don't bring the tears back to T-Net bc Clemson is trying to win championships with the ones that are with the team. Leaving early isn't something to boast about, any junior can do that bc it's easy. Staying and helping your team mates to win games is special, it takes selflessness and dedication for your team and team mates that has done their best to help each other to be their best for their team for the duration of their college careers.

Surprised by this but I can understand it. Clemson is not a passing offense right now and there is no reason to expect it to change for his senior season. The only way to improve his draft stock would be to have a stellar season catching the ball and that's just not going to happen. Best of luck to him in the NFL.

Jan 8, 2018, 2:00 AM

He would not get the touches next year with our WR depth and talent. He would likely have had around 30 catches and 250-300 yards receiving, mostoh from of screens and flare outs. Very talented, but would have been limited to mainly a returner role and possibly more defense. He probably won't get drafted, but his stock is as high as it will be.

Re: TNET: Clemson WR will forego senior season


Jan 8, 2018, 7:51 AM

My uneducated opinion is that he should come back and focus on being a DB. He seems to have a better chance on defense and, by having a full year exclusively at DB, could be a draft pick. Nonetheless, he gave a classy announcement and I hope for the best for him.
