I would imagine. My guess is they’re hoping he decides to transfer. If he redshirts and comes back next year they’re going to have some hard decisions to make, which become even harder with daddy on staff.

After his failures to improve year after year, I would think that even USuC fans hope he’s done.

Hes done at SCAR but I think he'll get drafted mid round if he heals and has good combine.

I don’t doubt your draft knowledge but I have not seen much to indicate he is draft worthy. He seems to be draft worthy physically but not mentally. As a comparison TBoyd was a better QB but could not make it in the NFL

Me I have no draft knowledge but this is what Todd McShay said end of season last year about him, which was if he decalred for the last draft so I'm just assuming that would translate to same level or a tad later view if he rehabs and has a good combine. Much as we Tigers dislike SCAR they do still have some good athletes who are NFL caliber. I not a fan of JB just noting what this and other analysts have noted about him. One even had him as a first round possible a while ago and before you all howl who have thought Dukes QB was a first rounder or Turbisksy either. Have the boday type show some skills and someone will take a shot. TB should have left as a junior in hindsight his draft stack was higher even though he had a great senior year as mnay siad if he stayed he might be a 1st rounder. Unfortunately hes not 6'4" 224 lbs went late with no guarantees and to me did not really get a fair shot if he went in say rd 1-3 he would have had a couple of years to develop even as a backup.


Last Nov - McShay, a longtime draft analyst for ESPN, has a “Day 2 grade” on Bentley, meaning there’s potential for the 6-foot-4, 224-pounder to be taken in the second or third round this April.

Yep he’s done at SC.

Admittedly I’m not great at projecting these things, but it would be surprising to see JB go higher than 3rd round... but who knows

Probably, but in all honesty it would be best for the young man if Bobby stayed in Columbia and he went in a different direction.


Bentley has the tools to be a mid round draft pick, he just lacks the intangibles. He's easily rattled if things do not go his way, doesn't appear to be much of a leader, and acts immature both on and off the field. I wonder if he wouldn't be better served elsewhere where he would have to do it on his own without daddy looking over his shoulder.

Doubt if dad will go with him if he transfers, but I also doubt if muschamp will keep him around when Jake is gone. I think uofsc took Bobby to get Jake.

I agree. JB may have the physical tools, but I don't think he'll have major success regardless of where he ends up. And I don't think daddy can swing another package deals to get him a job elsewhere.

I also don't think he'll make it in the NFL. He might get picked up in a late round where a team might give him a shot. But, we won't see him take any meaningful snaps on a Sunday.

If Garcia didn’t make it in the NFL, Bentley has no shot.

Will he be the next SEC to Oklahoma transfer who has never done anything, yet is a favorite for the Heisman before he takes the first snap?

Does anyone know when he injured his foot? Why were they playing so conservatively? Bentley is in a horrible situation, because he was a mid round prospect that needed a big senior season to solidify draft grades. If he enters the draft now, he'll be coming off an injury, and his last game on film will be a terrible performance against a weak unc defense.

Since there's likely not going to be much of a difference in his contract if hes drafted in the 3rd rd or 7th, he might just decide he just wants an opportunity to make a roster. (Kyle Allen is a player who declared for the draft even though he had a terrible college career. He's made the Panthers roster)

Maybe he transfers to Mizzou and takes over for KB?
