Marcus Mariota, Cardale Jones Undecided On NFL Following Game 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 13, 2015 3:52 pm

Marcus Mariota and Cardale Jones each said after Monday's national championship that they're unsure if they'll declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Entering Monday night's game, Mariota said he would trade the Heisman Trophy he won this season for a national championship because the team honor was more important to the Oregon Ducks' junior quarterback.

"I'm sure it will weigh in a little bit, but there's a lot of other things that have to play into that decision," Mariota said about the loss. "There's starting grad school, coming back for another year to improve, there's a lot of other things that could bring me back. It's just not specifically this loss."

Jones, a third-year sophomore, is also eligible to enter the draft. Jones played very well in three games as a starter and there's no guarantee he would be Ohio State's starter next season.

If I'm Jones I would declare. You have a chance to be a late first rounder just off a three game sample size.
