However, it seems that he was able to not go to the SR bowl and still have a pretty good chacne to be the pick. So I can't say it hurt him too awful bad.
It just kept him in line with the other QB's in the back end of the first round talk.
It wasn't about being better than the the other QB's as much as it was about raising his own stock to be worth a top 10 pick.
