See I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to post it for fear of backlash. Maybe for violating probation he gets suspended 4 games(ala JJ) or half a season. See a lot of you guys aren't seeing the bigger effect that could have. What if Hilliard and Blue are running like Lacy and Yeldon last year (or Gurley and Marshall)? It's certainly was a possibility before Blue was injured and Faulk was injured.
through three games:
Blue 270yds 2TDs, 7rec 45yds
Hilliard 303yds 6TDs
On the ground they had accounted for 191yds and 2.6 TDs a game(206yds a game if you count the reception yards)
Eddie Lacy 126yds 4TDs rec 10yds
TJ Yeldon 191yds 2TDs 6rec 91yds
Accounted for 106yds rushing and 2TDs a game(139 total yards a game)
Todd Gurley 276yds 4TDs
Keith Marshall 182yds TD rec 3
153yds rushing a game 1.6TDs a game (154yds a game total)
We all had fairly even opponents so whose to say our guys wouldn't have done the same if the line had been adequent and we didn't lose Blue?
TL; DR what I'm getting at is what if they are producing again on the same level, Hilliard 6 games in with 550yds and 10TDs, Blue 620yds and 8TDs? I'm thinkinh Hill leaves because he's eligible and he'd beat some guys out at camp, Blue and Hilliard would leave because both would break 1000yds and double digit TDs. They'll look at Blue's recieving skills and quickness and Hilliard's power and ability to break away and both would get good grades for the draft which would cause Hilliard to declare.
Now you have Magee and RB/WR Brazil to beat out.
