McCaffrey's bowl game skip a non-factor
From bucswire.com columnist Tony Medero - The 6-foot, 200 pound versatile running back ended his career following a controversial decision. McCaffrey decided to forego the team’s bowl game, along with a few other NCAA football players such as LSU running back, Leonard Fournette. Regardless of the hoopla surrounding the decision, McCaffrey’s career stats speak for themselves. In three years, McCaffrey ran for 632 attempts for 3922 and 21 touchdowns.
The question regarding McCaffrey skipping his bowl game is an interesting one. One former scout we discussed this with blasted Fournette for making that decision while a current evaluator basically said "meh". It kind of feels like a point of view that's based on age. Personally, I see both sides of the argument and can understand a player wanting to skip their bowl game for health reasons and when it comes to general managers looking to acquire as much talent as possible, I think this becomes a non-factor on draft day.
