He announced it today. This is a big deal, he missed 2 games, also shared time with booker and still lead the ACC at 95.1 yards per game and was 2nd in the country at 6.89 per carry.

He's going to be a 1st-2nd rounder next year.

It's doubtful. Senior DeAngelo Williams will head the class plus other top rated senior RBs like Gerald Riggs & Dontrell Moore (if healthy) & then there's always some of the top underclassmen like Reggie Bush, Laurence Maroney, Justin Vincent, like LenDale White that will declare.

You really think all of those guys are more talented than Leon? I've only hear of DeAngelo and Reggie. Leon does lack size (5'9"), but he'd be a great scat back. Power and speed.

Hey, if he falls to the 4th round, I'd take him.

Laurence Maroney is Marion Barber's running mate & best friend at Minnesota & is a better prospect than Barber. Maroney has the power & 4.4 speed you look for in a RB.
Justin Vincent was LSU's RB that carried them to a share of the NC last year, he was hurt much of this year.
LenDale White is USC's other RB that ran for 1000 yards this year who is more of a power back that's difficult to tackle & has a great burst.
Gerald Riggs Jr is the son of the great Falcons RB Gerald Riggs Sr of the mid-80s. He's 6'-220, great football genes, & ran all over Auburn's great D this year (182 yds).
Dontrell is Baz's unknown talented teammate that would have been a first day lock next year but he tore his ACL in the bowl game. He'll have to prove himself all over again.
The only way Washington gets a sniff of the first two rounds is if only one of the top underclassmen declare but he's also hurt by this year's draft class being loaded because Benson, Brown, Cadillac, Fason, Morency, Barber, Shelton, & McClendon will fill many of the RB needs of the future.
