Dr. Myron Rolle, MD.

That's right, you heard it. THE Florida State Seminole superstar safety and mind freak, Myron Rolle, has decided to delay his inevitable NFL future, to do what no NFL'er has ever done before.......that is to utilize his Rhodes Scholarship and attend the prestige Oxford University. He plans to earn a 1 year masters in medical anthropology.

I cannot help but be proud of this kid. As you all may know, FSU does not take much pride in pumping out genius athletes, as most of them bolt to the NFL prior to their senior years (but what major college program hasn't had kids do this, other than Bobby Knights Hoosiers). This could not have happened to a nicer and more gifted kid. As desperate as I am to see the good doctor excel in the NFL next season; his long term goals of opening up a children's clinic post NFL life is more than enough reason for me to sit back and wait until 2010.

Congrats Dr. Rolle!!

Will he be eligible for the draft this year or next year?

He's eligible this year, though I wouldn't be surprised if someone took his rights in the draft...though I believe they're only good for one year
