Playing in bowl games comes with degree of risk
From landof10.com columnist Sean Keeler - "Butt blowing out his knee late in the first half of Friday night’s Orange Bowl doesn’t necessarily validate the decisions of tailbacks Fournette and McCaffery to skip their respective un-sexy postseason dates, having feared a loss of NFL value, if not limb, for their troubles. But what it did do was validate the discussion, gave legs to the hypothetical and put a face on the worst-case scenario. Because it happened — and it happened to a star. And now we’re going to see just how far that star falls."
Jake Butt has an injury insurance policy that will profit him $2,000,000 if he falls past the second round. After being considered by most as a mid to high second round prospect (some projected late first) it's well within reason to suspect that he will fall out of day 2 consideration.
