Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard declares for 2014 NFL Draft


The deadline for college football underclassmen to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft is set for January 15 and another prospect has announced his intentions to forgo his final years of eligibility to make the leap to the pros.

Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard, who transferred from the Florida Gators prior to the 2012 season, has officially decided to enter the NFL Draft.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report passed along the news:

Leonard has plenty of physical talent and was a top recruit for the Gators, but he found himself in legal troubles that led to his transfer. He was unable to beat out Jordan Reed as the starting tight end during his time at Florida and there is no guarantee that he will be drafted.

With Leonard’s decision, here is a look at all of the players who have entered the 2014 draft pool:

Chris Boyd, WR, Vanderbilt
Isaiah Crowell, RB, Alabama State
Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
A.C. Leonard, TE, Tennessee State
Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon
Louis Nix III, DE, Notre Dame
Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee 
Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
Yawin Smallwood, LB, UCONN
