Re Murphy's ultimate decision to stay in the draft versus staying at UVa,

nobody KNOWS what he'll ultimately do. Not over-confident posters like Hoosenberg, not even Murphy himself. Sure, we may have guesses, even, in some cases, educated guesses, but right now they're just that. So far, he's only made the predictable, rational decision to declare for the draft, attend the combine, and consider the evaluations he gets there. None of us knows how those evaluations will run. Still less do we know what Murphy will make of them. They could be decisive, in one direction or the other. But they could also leave him with a choice that is far from a no-brainer, in either direction. Then it will all depend on how he weighs the risks and rewards (which may not be the same as the way given posters (including me) may predict he'll weigh them, not to mention how we may weigh them ourselves. Fwiw, one consideration of which he appears to be taking account--the likely quality of the team on which he'll be playing if he stays at UVa--has changed in the past few days. But that's only one consideration. Overall, we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, it's fun to speculate, but I wish posters wouldn't state their (possibly educated) guesses (in either direction) as fact.
