Petrino to the NFL, Brohm and Bush next?

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has accepted a five-year, $24 million offer from the Atlanta Falcons to become their new coach. One has to assume that Louisville's Brian Brohm and Michael Bush are now going to enter the NFL draft.

Brohm, a junior, was thought to be headed back to Louisville for his senior season. However, he is unlikely to return for a new coach and to learn a new offense. If he enters the draft he'll be a first round pick, possibly in the top ten.

Bush, a senior, could return to Louisville with a medical redshirt. He broke his leg in the first game of the 2006 season and won't be completely healthy till March.

Predicting the Underclassmen

Dwayne Wright, Rory Johnson, Luke Smith-Anderson, Chris Henry, Stanley Doughtey, Gary Russell, Eric Wright, and Lawrence Timmons, have all announced they will go pro.

Which other top underclassmen will enter the NFL draft? Below is our best guesses based on rumors, 2006 performance, and opinion.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma - Going pro. He's a probable top 5 pick and a virtual lock to skip his senior season.

Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech - Going pro. Another top 5 pick, who should go pro. However, it's not a lock and there has been a lot of noise from friends and family about the importance of staying in school.

Henne, Hart, Long, Michigan - Staying in school. All announced they will return for senior year.

Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville - Staying in school. Will return for another National Championship and Heisman run.

Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC - Going pro. Not as certain as the start of the season, but should still go pro.

Jackson, Baker, Washington, and Booty, USC - All announced they will return for senior year.

Ted Ginn, WR, Ohio St - Going pro. He won't want to audition for the NFL with a new QB next year at OSU.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal - Going pro. Stock way up. A few scouts like him better then Peterson.

Alan Branch, DT, Michigan - Going pro. Could be the top DT.

Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina - Staying in school. Has already told Spurrier he'll return.

Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU - Will go pro. Stock is up and should be a first rounder.

JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU - Going pro. Has everything scouts look for in a pro QB prospect: size (6-6 250), athleticism and a big time arm. Could challenge Quinn for first QB taken in draft.

Reggie Nelson, S, Florida - Going Pro. Stock way up. Could pass Laron Landry as the best safety prospect.

Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii - Originally looked to return, now seems to be leaning to going pro.

Limas Sweed, WR, Texas - Announced he will return.

Zach Miller, TE, ASU - Going pro. With coach fired, he's more likely to skip senior year. Best TE in the draft.

Greg Olsen, TE, Miami - Going pro. 2nd best TE in the draft.

Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee - Likely to go pro. Has a daughter to support and should be a late first or early second rounder.

Mario Urrutia, WR, Louisville - Will return to school.

Darrelle Revis, CB, Pitt - Going pro. Could be top CB in draft.

Lynch impressive in perhaps his final game at Cal

In probably his last game at California, Marshawn Lynch ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Golden Bears to victory in the Holiday Bowl. Most expect Lynch to skip his senior year and enter the 2007 NFL draft.

Look for Lynch to get drafted in the top half of the first round as he is the total package for a running back prospect. He has very good size and is a good interior runner. He also has the elusiveness to make people miss, the speed to outrun defenders, and is a play-maker in the passing game.

Keyshawn's advice to Jarrett, stay in school

Former USC receiver Keyshawn Johnson recently commented that, if asked, he would tell receiver Dwayne Jarrett to stay in school.

"He's not ready for the NFL in my opinion," Johnson said. "Any time you go down to Arkansas and you allow those guys to jam you at the line of scrimmage and run poor routes, you're not ready."

It's doubtful Jarrett will listen to Keyshawn. Jarrett hasn't made his decision know, however his silence while all the other USC juniors were announcing they would return speaks volumes. It would also be difficult to see Jarrett pass up the draft when many project he'll be a top 15 pick.

Linebacker Brandon Siler, wide receiver Andre Caldwell, defensive end Jarvis Moss, and safety Reggie Nelson are all considering the 2007 NFL draft.

According to previous reports, Nelson will enter the draft and should be a first round selection. It's unknown at this time what the other three will do. Purely speculation, but expect Siler and Caldwell to go pro and Moss to return.

"He's free to go. He's not here," Spurrier said. "He's going pro. We haven't seen him in a couple days. He's out. He's gone."

The 6-foot, 331-pound Doughty started just 3 games this season for USC and was in and out of the coaches' doghouse all year because of his weight and questionable work ethic. He finished the year with 17 tackles and no sacks. Doughty isn't an elite prospect and reports of his poor work ethic will only hurt his draft stock.

Arizona's Henry to leave for the NFL draft

University of Arizona starting tailback Chris Henry will declare for the NFL draft, he confirmed Monday afternoon. Henry cited a lack of playing time early in the season as a key reason for making his decision to leave.

Henry has a good combination of size (6-1, 230-pounds) and speed (some report a 4.4 forty), however he didn't produce at Arizona. The junior rushed for 581 yards on 165 carries this season, an average of just 3.5 yards per attempt. He'll need to have an impressive post-season circuit to hear his name called on the first day of the 2007 NFL draft.

Beason is waiting to hear back from the NFL committee about his draft grade and will go pro if he's a first rounder. Olsen did not request an NFL draft grade, but could enter the draft anyways.

Beason is very unlikely to receive a first round grade and should return to Miami. Olsen is more likely to go pro and would be one of the top TEs in the draft if he declares.

“If they say second round, I’ll definitely be back, because nobody wants to go second round. Trust me,” Meachem said. “When you’re beating up your body and doing things like that, nobody wants to be second round.”

It's pretty unlikely that he will receive a first round grade. So, if you take him at his word, expect him to return to Tennessee for his senior season.

Louisville junior quarterback Brian Brohm said after Saturday’s game that he “definitely expected” to return for his senior season.

"but you’ve got to see where you might be picked and weigh all your options to see what is the best thing to do.”

You can expect a lot of this type of activity from junior prospects over the next month as they waiver back and forth over their decision. A lot of them are quick to 'return' to make their college fans happy, only to head to the NFL in the end.

If Brohm declares, he'd be a first round lock and a possible top ten pick.
