The record group of college football underclassmen to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft has grown by one. The latest addition is Jacksonville State Gamecocks junior safety Pierre Warren, who announced his intentions to declare for the draft on Friday night.
“This is something that I’ve been considering since our playoff run,” Warren said in a statement released by the university. “After talking to my family and Coach Clark, I think it’s in my best interest to leave school early and enter the NFL draft.”
In 2013, Warren led Jacksonville State in interceptions (5), passes defended (17) and pass breakups (12), as the Gamecocks reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I playoffs. He was also second on the team in tackles with 76.
