The deadline to declare for the NFL draft is one week from today. Let us take a quick look at who has already announced their intentions, and who is still mulling over their decision.
North Carolina C Russell Bodine
Clemson DB Bashaud Breeland
Clemson WR Martavis Bryant
North Carolina TE Eric Ebron
Syracuse RB Jerome Smith
Clemson WR Sammy Watkins
Also, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad that Florida State running back James Wilder Jr. will enter for the draft. Of these players who have already declared, only Watkins and Ebron are listed on the latest Mel Kiper Big Board. Watkins and Ebron are near locks to go early in the draft. But the prospects are less certain for the others who have already declared.
