last year broke the record set the previous year with underclassman declaring for the NFL draft (65).lets have one thread with declares, and updates.
Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Colorado redshirt junior WR Paul Richardson will enter the NFL draft.Buffalos head coach Mike MacInyre told reporters last week that he would not twist Richardson's arm to stay in Boulder next season, but it appears that the star receiver has already made up his mind to leave. Richardson, who missed last season with a knee injury, has collected 79 catches for 1,289 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. His slender frame (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) will ensure durability questions persist, but we like Richardson's deep speed and big-play ability.
Former Vanderbilt junior WR Chris Boyd will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.Boyd was dismissed from the school after he allegedly assisted in a cover-up that included other players on the football team. His charges were reduced to a misdemeanor. Boyd also revealed he considered transferring to Penn State or Wisconsin, but finally chose on leaving for the NFL. He is currently working out in preparation for the draft process.
UNC junior TE Eric Ebron announced his intent to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.Head coach Larry Fedora said Ebron will participate in the team's senior activities. "I couldn't ask for anything more for a season... couldn't imagine a better way to end career than to beat Duke and get the Victory Bell back," Ebron said. The athletic tight end could be the first prospect at the position off the board in May. He's got solid movement skills, displays alignment versatility, and has improved his consistency at the catch point.
Meyer said Roby, who was expected to leave the Buckeyes after this season, will be honored on "Senior Day" when Ohio State plays host to Indiana on Saturday.
Alabama State junior, and former Georgia Bulldog, RB Isaiah Crowell will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.Crowell has rushed for 1,089 yards and 15 touchdowns this season on 163 carries. He has added seven receptions for 27 yards. Crowell's biggest knock will be off-field questions, but since leaving Georgia on a weapons charge, which was later dismissed, the running back has earned praise from those affiliated with the Alabama State program.
Florida junior CB Loucheiz Purifoy will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.We expect to hear a lot of this regarding much of Florida's draft-eligible talent. Purfioy is a great athlete, but he struggles with technique and loses ground because of it. Part of the could be caused from spending time on offense prior to the season.
