Sidney Rice will go pro

South Carolina sophomore Sidney Rice is giving up his final two seasons of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. This season, Rice caught 72 passes for 1090 yards and 10 TDs. He also set the school record for career TD receptions with 23.

Rice is a tall (6-4), talented receiver who is raw but has a ton of potential. He could go late first or early second round depending on how he does in post-season workouts.

Sidney Rice will Return to USC Next Season

Receiver Sidney Rice told South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier he will return next season. Rice, a redshirt sophomore, is eligible to enter the 2007 NFL draft because he is three years removed from high school. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Rice could still change his mind and enter the draft where he has an outside shot at going in the first round. This shot has one USC teammate, Syvelle Newton, unconvinced he is actually going to return. “I can’t see Sidney coming back,” Newton said.
