12:26 PM ET 01.02 | When the Ohio State Buckeyes and Clemson Tigers face off on Friday night in the 2014 Orange Bowl, a number of players will be entering the game with their NFL status still up in the air. Among those who will have a draft decision to make are Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller and linebacker Ryan Shazier. Miller is expected to announce his decision by the end of the week, while Shazier is still undecided. A source close to the situation told FanSided.com that Shazier is still "50/50" on whether or not to go pro. He will have until the January 15 deadline for underclassmen to declare before making his decision. Last month, Shazier filed paperwork to the NFL Draft Advisory Board and he received a second-round grade.

Second round is about right. Stay in school for another year, kid.

Yes, take the stupid redundant advice to stay in school and risk career ending injury for free rather than making high-six, low-seven figures in the NFL. You can ALWAYS go to school it will be there, opportunities won't.

But lets listen to the back-up plan for failure and the ever boring, repetitive "stay in school." That way you can get a job that will pay you in 10 - 20 years what you could make in the NFL IN ONE!

He's right tho...take the money while you can.

Second round money ain't what it used to be but not bad. Ryan could enhance his draft stock by bulking up a bit and next year's defense will be better with some veteran players returning. He was the only returning starter from last year's D and it showed. But he is well positioned to be a star in next year's D. It is a tough call.

I think he goes before 2nd round begins. He has all the stuff that is coached, and most of the stuff that isn't. The only negatives I've heard is he is "too small", but tell that to the gazillion other people who were "too small" and had tremendous careers.

Having watched a lot of the bowl games, he is in the top two LB's playing in NCAA now.

Return for your senior season Shazier!

Most of the too small stars don't play linebacker.

Yeah, that's right follow the lead of DumbAssT and Jadeveon Clowney. Oh yeah and don't forget that as a second round pick, everything's secure in the NFL where, of course, you can't get a career-ending injury. You dumb a ss. It's really stupid advice to say you can always go back, because most won't and they end up with no money and no education in a fedw years. If you stay in school, Ryan, you'll at least get education and something to fall back on when, inevitably, your football time is over. Ask Andrew Luck why he stayed.

He is too small to play LB in NFL. Looks like a strong side safety to me.

Your comments are another one of STUPID people. YEs mos people do not go back to school ONCE they are in a job making money and get caught up with expenses and debt. But that is the individuals fault. Can injury end an NFL career? Sure! But at least you made a league MINIMUM (and likely more if you are actually playing - cause the guy sitting the bench gets nearly half a million a year). That is a lot more than a college degree at a "career" job will pay you! So you are the dumb short sighted person who does not have the personal fortitude to see past the regurgitated expressing "Stay in School"!! And you WHOLD logic is based on the ASSumption that one would not go back. But you would have money and time after football to do so. And there are those ex-NFL players that have gone back after long careers and finished their degrees. So go ahead and pollute the minds of young people with you "Stay in School" advise. Good advise for those with no current plans or OPPORTUNITIES, absolute disgusting recipe for failure for those who have a REAL AND TRUE opportunity. But the the SIS advise usually comes from those who never took advantage of opportunities in their own life and continue to work paycheck to paycheck their whole lives. Your loser mentality is SPELLED out in second to last sentence...."have something to fall back on"!! Well you can always fall back on the NFL cash you made and go back to school ANYTIME in the future (with the money to pay for you last year and your living expenses and do it without acquiring any debt). Ignore the ignorant path of failures of the masses Ryan, go to the NFL!! Which at this point he has declared he will. SMART BOY!!
