Chris Givens, who quietly put together an excellent season of 74 catches for 1,276 yards and 9 touchdowns, has filed paperwork with the NFL Draft advisory board.
Givens told reporters this week that he will make his intentions known by the end of next week after he receives his grade from the board.
"After the Vanderbilt game I sent them my declaring-for-eligibility form or whatever, and I'm just waiting to get my official evaluation back,'' Givens said. "I've heard things from different people but nothing official yet.''
Juniors have until Jan. 15 to declare for the 2012 NFL Draft. If he decides to go pro, Givens would only be the second Demon Deacon to do so. In 2007, linebacker Jon Abbate went pro early and was undrafted.
Givens had his best game of the year on Nov. 19 against Maryland. In that game he had 8 catches for 191 yards and a touchdown.
