Oregon WR Darren Carrington applies for draft grade, still leaning towards return

The 2015 college football season is all but over, but it is always fun to look back at the season and wonder what could have happened. One team that could have had a vastly different season had things gone their way is the Oregon Ducks.

Had quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. not broken his finger in the opening game of the season, the second game against Michigan State could have gone their way a little better. To add to that, had wide receiver Darren Carrington not had to sit out the first half of the season due to a marijuana suspension, things could have been much different.

“I think if I played a full year, I maybe would have been noticed with those guys, Laquon Treadwell, Josh Doctson, those guys from Baylor (Corey Coleman),” Carrington told 247Sports.

The site also reported that Carrington, a redshirt sophomore, has applied for a NFL Draft grade, but is likely returning to school for at least next season. Being that he did redshirt, he can enter the Draft next April if he so chooses.

He shined last season, catching 37 passes for 704 yards and four touchdowns. In just six games this season, Carrington went for 502 yards and five touchdowns.

Carrington certainly has loads of NFL talent, but right now it is probably best for him to wait one more season, especially with the talented class of receivers this year.
