Post Bierria joins Grant and McMichael

Friday January 11, 2002

Bierria joins Grant and McMichael in the NFL draft. Bierria said he’s still a year and a half from graduating and since he wouldn’t have been able to earn a degree even if he returned for his senior year he saw no sense in returning. I guess one can see his point, but if a degree were his goal, finishing it in two years rather than one isn’t a showstopper – that his athletic scholarship would run out is the real issue. Just because Bierria’s announcement was a little bit of a shock, don’t take that to mean he isn’t well-thought of by pro scouts. He’ll likely get drafted and has the good size and speed they look for. You can never fault a kid who came from very little jumping at the chance to live his dream of playing in the NFL. Hopefully Terreal will have made the right decision for himself, and the large improvement he would have made in his draft status by returning for his senior season won’t turn out to matter much.
