Bruce Campbell to enter NFL Draft

Bruce Campbell

OT – Maryland Junior 6’6″ 312 lbs

Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell decided today that he’ll pass up his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Campbell has spectacular size at 6’6″ 312 lbs, but needs to work on his technique. With this year’s senior class of offensive lineman lacking in first round talent, it’s a solid business decision for Campbell.

Gerald McCoy

DT – Oklahoma Junior 6’3″ 296 lbs

Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy has decided to pass up his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft. McCoy, who would be the top rated player in just about any other draft, sits just behind Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh on our board. McCoy can plan for an invite to New York for the draft and is a sure fire top 5 pick.

Arrelious Benn

WR – Illinois Junior 6’1″ 221 lbs

Illinois WR Arrelious Benn has decided to pass up his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Benn is a possible first round wide receiver, but lack of production in his Junior year could hurt his stock. However, the entire Illinois team lacked production, so we’ll wait to see what he does at the combine.

Jake Locker

QB – Washington Junior 6’3″ 226 lbs

Washington quarterback Jake Locker announced today that he will return for his senior season for the Huskies. Locker, who many regarded as possibly the first quarterback to be taken in the 2010 NFL Draft decided that he needs another season under his belt before going to the NFL, stating “After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year.” According to the most recent mock draft by Todd McShay at ESPN.com, Locker was the number one overall pick, going to the St. Louis Rams. We at Draft Breakdown.com agreed that if Locker were to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, he would be the first quarterback taken in the draft. Perhaps Jimmy Clausen, Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy should all cover Locker’s final year of living expenses at Washington….he just (read more…)

Mark Ingram

RB – Alabama Sophomore 5’10″ 215 lbs

Alabama running back Mark Ingram was named the 75th winner of the Heisman Trophy tonight. This is the 2nd straight season a sophomore has been the recipient of the award. Ingram won the award on the heels of a dominate performance against Florida in the SEC Championship game. Florida came into the game with the #1 ranked defense in the nation, and Ingram exploited their weaknesses. Ingram finished the game with 28 carries for 113 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns. Ingram was also a threat receiving the ball, catching 2 passes for 76 yards, one of which went for 69 yards. Ingram finished the season with 1542 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns in what is arguably the toughest overall and defensive conference in all of college football. The 75th annual Heisman Trophy was the closest race in history as Ingram (read more…)

Stafon Johnson to go pro

Written by Will Spencer on December 12, 2009

First USC Senior running back Stafon Johnson suffered a major throat injury in a weight lifting accident. Now he has decided that he won’t return for another year at USC and will enter the NFL Draft instead. Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports that Johnson could have taken a medical red shirt for his senior season and returned to USC as a 5th year Senior. However, after talking things over with USC Head Coach Pete Carroll, Johnson has decided that now is the time to make the transition to the NFL. Johnson currently sits at #13 in our running back rankings and will more than likely be a later round selection. He is reportedly hoping for an invitation to the Senior Bowl where he can show that he has fully recovered from his accident. If Johnson does attend, Draft Breakdown will be there to keep you up to speed at (read more…)

Suh wins Bronko Nagurski Award

Ndamukong Suh

DT – Nebraska Senior 6’3″ 295 lbs

This was a no-brainer. Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has won the Bronko Nagurski Award for the best defensive player in the country. Suh finished off his season with an outstanding and rather dominate performance against Texas in the Big 12 Championship game. Suh is one of five finalists for the Heisman Trophy as well, which will be announced this weekend. Suh also holds the top spot as our #1 rated draft prospect.

Golden Tate to enter NFL Draft

Golden Tate

WR – Notre Dame Junior 5’11″ 194 lbs

Just as expected, Golden Tate will announce today that he’ll enter the NFL Draft as well, according to a recent Twitter entry by Adam Schefter of ESPN. No surprise here. Head coach gone, starting quarterback gone, time for the star wide receiver to leave as well. Tate is projected as a first round draft pick at this point but due to his size, the combine will be very important.

Jimmy Clausen to enter NFL Draft

Written by Will Spencer on December 7, 2009

Jimmy Clausen

QB – Notre Dame Junior 6’3″ 223 lbs

Following the firing of Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis, quarterback Jimmy Clausen has announced that he will skip his senior season and enter the 2010 NFL Draft per ESPN.com. This is great news for draftniks as the senior class of quarterbacks has been anything but impressive this season. Both Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow played relatively poorly in their conference championship games, making way for Clausen to be the top rated quarterback in the draft at this point. Fans should expect Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate to also declare for the NFL Draft after his quarterback made this announcement.
