However, your point stands.  I don’t understand how a HS kid could turn down $1M+ to go to college (Karstens Whitson in 2010, Gerrit Cole in 2008) and take that risk.

Had they gone to college and gotten injured, who knows if/where they’d be drafted.
 
When I look at Welker, I see Allie. Can control be learned? Sure, Allie has better stuff all around and higher upside, but he is/was as wild as Duke, maybe more so?
