Quarterback Marcus Mariota will bypass the 2014 NFL draft and return for his junior season at Oregon, it was announced Tuesday.


That's ok... I didn't want the Vikings to draft him anyway.

Hope they can keep him healthy next year. Somewhat risky IMO. Woulda liked to see him here in Purple...but no guarantee that would happen or that he's gonna be a stud.

He will project #1 overall in 2015, and we will most likely be there to grab him so this is fine with me. Great kid and a great player. His talent has no ceiling, the kid just turned 20!!! He will be a great pro when he makes the transition.


Don't forget about Winston.

Would not be surprised to Brett Hundley stay at UCLA as well. Which means the top two QBs will be Bridgewater and... Manziel. :hang:

We still have a chance to get AJ McCarron so there's nothing to worry about. We should also looking into Aaron Murray. Is draft stock is sure to go down now because of his injury. He will be a good mid-round steal

I didn't forget, just waiting to see if he will be in prison the rest of his life or continuing to be a great football player. If any tiny part of this rape allegation is true, I hope he burns in hell.

I should add if it's not true at all I hope she does because she could ruin his career, and that is absurd if it's all made up.just want to be fair to both sides.


Not charged.

I hope it works out for him, most of the recent QB's who have elected to stay has turned out to be a poor decision. I'm torn on who to hope for now, Bridgewater I guess. Maybe Manz... nope can't do it sorry, not unless he falls out of the 1st. I also hope the Vikings don't fall into the "50% screen pass" Carr trap either. Hopefully Fresno plays a good defense in a bowl game, then everyone will see that he's mostly average with a strong arm.
