# (6:00 PM): Second Mountaineer junior to enter draft... As expected, West Virginia junior CB Adam 'Pac Man' Jones has announced that he will be entering the 2005 draft. Jones joins former Mountaineer teammate WR Chris Henry as an early entrant in this year's draft. The 5-11, 185-pound Jones, who doubles as one of the country's top punt returner - he averaged almost 15 yards per return this year - is considered to be a potential late-first-round prospect for the upcoming draft.
# (4:00 AM): Gator soph LB to go pro... Florida sophomore LB Channing Crowder has announced that he will be entering the 2005 draft. While only a sophomore, Crowder is eligible for the draft because he took a year off after graduating from high school to rehab a knee injury. Crowder is 6-3, 245 and had 180 tackles the past couple of season for the Gators despite missing several games this fall with an arch problem.
# (1:00 PM): RB, CB, and two LBs head to draft... The dribble of college underclassmen announcing their intentions to enter the 2005 draft turned into a deluge this morning with four more juniors reportedly headed to the NFL this winter. Included in the quartet are LBs Odell Thurman of Georgia and Shawne Merriman of Maryland, Clemson CB Justin Miller and Louisville RB Eric Shelton.
