With his brothers ACL issues, now his, I don't think it's a wise decision for him to come back and risk it happening again.

If, a year from now, it happens again, and he's still at OSU, he's probably screwed.

If it happens this time next year and he's already on an NFL contract, he'll be in much better position.

That's just too big of a risk to take when the NFL guys already have all the measurables and tape they need.

I actually didn’t think he would come back before the injury. Given that there are some top notch receivers coming out this year and competition will be crazy stiff, next year could be better for him with a full year of rehab under his belt.

Spencer Sanders has had ACL repairs on both knees and he seems to be doing pretty well. Maybe Tylan will see the kind of success that can be had and come back to prove himself for the NFL. Right now he has too many question marks for a team to risk a high pick on him. A competent surgeon, good rehab and S&C training can make all the difference in the world.

Tylan has to make up his own mind, but as an example, Nick Chubb, UGA had his own decision to make.

(It's more than two sentences, so some of you might need to get someone to read the entire post and then give you the one sentence break down. You know who you are.)

From NFL.com: WHILE CHUBB'S SENIOR SEASON at Georgia will be must-see tape for NFL scouts, the combine next spring might be just as important. NFL team doctors will do a deep-dive examination of that left knee, and what they find could impact his draft stock.

This time last year, none of that was of immediate concern to Chubb, who surprisingly passed on the 2017 draft to return for his senior season at Georgia. In an era where serious knee injuries and the general brevity of an NFL running back's career can push droves of underclassmen at Chubb's position into the draft, he wanted to set his Georgia career right with one more season. He finished his career second on Georgia's all-time list in both rushing yards (4,769) and touchdowns (44), behind only Herschel Walker in both categories.

"His medical (evaluation at the combine) will be a big key. Every doctor there is projecting longevity. If you're taking a guy in the first round, you're fully expecting that guy to sign a second contract," the scout said. "At the same time, if he kills it in the workouts, it will only take one club to fall in love with him. Look at Jaylon Smith. Some teams had him undraftable. Dallas' doctor obviously felt differently, and now they're going to get the payoff for that."
