Wow......I thought Devin Hester was going to stay another year since he struggled this year.

I'm also surprised that Santonio Holmes declared.

Hester's story was on ESPN last night. It's purely and admittedly a financial move to help his family.

It's honorable bad sad.

Wasn't really surprised in terms of talent......but more that OSU has so many studs coming back and Tressel hasn't lost that many players to the NFL.

But if the family needs money.......I don't blame him one bit.

Actually, ESPN said Tressel advised him to come out. Allegedly Tressel advises all of his players to enter the NFL if they will be first round picks. I agree with the philosophy, but I don't know that I would be speadin' that idea all around town if I was a college football HC.

You can add Maurice Drew RB from UCLA to that list, as ESPN is reporting this morning he will enter the NFL draft.

Post Omar!
Just to let you all know, Omar Jacobs will be holding a press conference here around 5, to announce whether or not he will enter the draft, so I look for him to enter, but I will post again when I find out, as it's going to probably be all over the news around here.



EDIT: Omar is entering the NFL draft maaaaaybe the Lions take him in the second or third?!?

Underclassmen Update: Big End to big week
TFY Draft Preview - Scout.com
January 6, 2006 at 11:25pm ET

A flood of underclassmen made public their intentions to enter April's draft today as the week ended. Less then ten days remain for those who wish to follow suit.

In what is no surprise to anyone, Oregon defensive tackle Haloti Ngata will enter the draft, as we first reported on December 4th . Ngata said financial concerns and his mother's poor health led him to the decision. "I just want to help my family out," Ngata said. "My mom's going to be in and out of the hospital." Likely the first defensive tackle to be selected in April, Ngata is a top 12 pick.

That same day we alerted subscribers Fresno State cornerback Richard Marshall would also enter the draft and the junior declared his intentions today as well. Though Marshall made no public comment his coach Pat Hill did. "Right now Richard is in a position where he is expected to go on the first day of the draft and believes he's ready to start making a living in the NFL." A potential shutdown cornerback, Marshall should slide into the draft's top-45.

Bowling Green quarterback Omar Jacobs made known today what sources had led us to believe in the middle of December . "It was a decision that was certainly not easy and a decision that I hope the people who have supported me throughout my career can understand and respect," said Jacobs, the schools all-time leader in touchdown passes. Off an All-American sophomore campaign we rated Jacobs as an early first round choice. Yet an injured shoulder hampered him throughout the season and Jacobs is likely to slide into the third round.

Our friends at Bucknuts.com alerted us on December 9th that Ohio State safety Donte Whitner would enter the draft and he did just that today. Whitner is the second Buckeye to enter the draft this week as receiver Santonio Holmes did the same on Wednesday.

In a bit of a surprise North Carolina State linebacker Stephen Tulloch announced he would enter the draft. A first-team All-ACC performer, Tulloch was voted MVP of the Meineke Car Care Bowl, which found the Wolfpack victorious over South Florida .

Equally surprising was the decision of Washington State receiver Jason Hill to bypass the draft. Even after a big season and early indications that he would enter the draft because of financial concerns, Hill opted to return for his senior season.

In similar fashion Tennessee defensive tackle Justin Harrell has also decided to return for his senior season.

Obviously one story which must be watched is that of Marcus Vick . The Virginia Tech quarterback was dismissed from the team Friday, the result of numerous legal transgressions and his conduct in the Gator Bowl.

Will Vick now declare for the draft? If he does it will be a huge mistake. Character issues aside, several scouts we spoke with at the ACC title game in Jacksonville state Vick is nowhere near ready for the next level.

If Santonio would haved stayed in college he would have been on the same level as Clarrett coming out after 1 year....

He is, and has been scouted as, the head and shoulders #1 WR on the board......NO ONE comes close! This isn't just from a Buckeye fan but from the so called experts I have read in alot of places. He really has NO competition from the SR's. Think of Terry Glenn when he came out of OSU but without the mental issues? A few mocks I have seen have him going to Philly....GREAT Fit! And just think, he was bothered by a foot injury this whole year!

I didn't see Marcus Vick's name on the list, you can read about it in the LB draft blog:

http://draft-lionbacker.blogspot.com/

along with the names I've seen confirmed so far

so would you take a chance on Marcus? If so, when would you take him?

I wouldn't take the a chance on Vick b/c he is a average player right now at best and no one knows if he could stay out of trouble b/c he hasn't in the last 4 years. Don't comparable him to CLarett b/c they had different problems and Clarrett had half as many and look at Clarett now. Was Vick also charger with sexual assualt on the teenager girls

I just counted the latest list.......and there are 35 early entrants so far.

Last year, there was 38 that entered early.


It sure seems like a lot of players are going early this year........and should make for an interesting draft.
