Grothe Taking Look at NFL Draft Status

I had to chuckle to myself this week when a story in The Tampa Tribune reported University of South Florida quarterback Matt Grothe saying he forgo his senior year if he was projected to be drafted in the NFL by the third or fourth round. He plans on exploring that option after the season.
I chuckled because not only is Grothe not close to being an NFL quarterback (yet), his team has greatly underachieved this year, is barely bowl eligible and he has been far from stellar. What does it say for an undersized, underarmed, running QB from a disappointing team to want to leave his school for the fourth round of the draft?
Head Coach Jim Leavitt must be scratching his head about his team's signal caller trying to get out early when he has no shot of success at the next level.
