USC WR Marqise Lee to enter NFL draft


Marqise Lee, wide receiver for the USC Trojans, has announced that he will be entering the NFL draft in a few months. He made it known on Twitter Friday night.



Lee also added, “I am a proud Trojan and will remain a Trojan for life!”

From NBC Sports,

Lee was USC’s top offensive player each of the past few years. Lee recorded 1,721 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in 2012 and 1,143 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns the year before. This past season Lee was banged up at various points so his production took a dip with 791 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games. When healthy, Lee is one of the best receivers in the game and he should be a solid draft pick if he can prove to be in good shape in the coming months.

Lee, the 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner, joins a number of other junior wide receivers moving on to the NFL. Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks, this season’s Biletnikoff Award winner, as well as Texas A&M’s Mike Evans and Penn State’s Allen Robinson are all entering the NFL Draft this spring.

Where do you think Lee will go in the draft? Do you think he’s a first round talent, or will he be selected on the second day?
