ESPN - DeAndre Brown to go pro
The talented, but sometimes boneheaded, Southern Miss junior wide receiver is entering the NFL Draft. Brown had only 19 catches for 284 yards and three touchdowns this season. To say he should have played another year in college is obvious. He's going to have to do a lot to repair his image in the interview process.

SI.com (AP) - Fairley not thinking draft
Oddly, Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley did not submit his name to the advisory committee. This means two starkly different things. First is that Fairley is returning to school. Second, and more likely, is that he knows he's a top 10 pick and doesn't need to submit paperwork.

Orlando Sentinel - Pouncey expects two Florida juniors to go pro
Florida's Mike Pouncey says he expects cornerback Janoris Jenkins and safety Will Hill to enter the NFL Draft. As been mentioned previously, this would be a bad idea for Hill. As a senior, he'd be able to elevate his draft stock immensely. Now he's probably a third-day pick. Jenkins should go in the first round, depending on what teams think of his torn labrum. Also worth noting is that Mike Pouncey said his brother, Maurkice, tells him the Steelers want to draft him.

SB Nation Pittsburgh - Sands faces uncertain future
West Virginia safety Robert Sands told the media this week that he'll enter the draft if he's given a grade of second round or higher by the advisory committee.

Denver Post - Cornerback Jimmy Smith getting ready for the draft
This is a nice little overview on the Colorado cornerback and how he is getting ready to prepare for the NFL Draft process. Smith will be working out at Athletes' Performance alongside Prince Amukamara. Daunting.

Shelby Star - Clausen not worried about Luck
Per the ostrich'd one: "The only thing I can control is myself and doing everything I can to get this team ready to play on Sunday."
