Tyler Bray wont be far behind then lol, no way he goes back to school with his top WRs and top TE not coming back.

Agreed, he has basically lost his top 3 WRs if you count Rogers being dismissed, and now entering the draft.

Yep. New offense, new coaches all around and all of your play makers gone? He'd have to get a day 3 valuation to be crazy enough to go back...


By the way to the OP -- According to GBN David Amerson CB NCSU has said he is going pro but no formal announcement yet.
According to NFL.com Alabama QB A.J. McCarron is coming back to Bama.

Only a "report" but Bray is likely leaving Tennessee for the NFL

Makes sense like we said. His OT Ju'Wuan James is staying according to GBN, but when your top targets are gone, whats the point.

Plus, if Bray stayed he would have a new coach, and presumably have to learn a new system.

Better to enter, especially with absence of high quality quarterbacks in this draft.
