|Santonio Holmes would make sense for the Chiefs.|
As Holmes was talking, fellow receiver Roy Hall yelled behind him, "You're going to the league!"
Holmes is a fourth-year junior. His announcement after the Buckeyes defeated Notre Dame 34-20 did not seem to come as a surprise to coach Jim Tressel.
"He's a fourth-year guy, well along toward his degree," Tressel said. "I think he's proven that it's time to move along.
"I tell all our players that if you're a first-round pick, you should go. And Santonio is going to be a first-round draft pick."
Quarterback Troy Smith said, "It's time for him to step up and go to another level."
