This is the year to do it, if ever. It is a relatively weak and shallow draft and several of the "bubble" prospects have a much better shot at getting drafted this year or maybe even making it into the first round this year than they likely would have in next year's draft. There are always some people that are making questionable decisions, but to me, it is more excusable in this year's draft.

Not all of them left school early assuming they will get drafted..

Some of them are leaving school early hoping they will get draft, but are realistically planning on going overseas to play....Some of them feel the pressure to leave school early and make money overseas, because of money issues with their family...
