Matt Elam's HS coach says he's all but going to declare. Not official yet though.

He and Shariff Floyd made it official after the game.

Didn't see it so I thought I'd add it.

@JimmyHyams: UT QB Tyler Bray has signed with sports agent Don Yee, who represents Tom Brady. This ends Bray's career as a Vol.

Not much of a pass rusher though the potential is there, but definitely a powerful run stopper....could be a perfect development 3-4 DE for Fangio.

Sometimes, it is economic. One of the early entrants, I do not remember who but , has two kids and a wife to support.

He might get picked on the third day and get a minimum contract.

But, the minimum wage in the NFL is good money in the real world.

edit:
Rookies receive "minimum salaries under the CBA."
In 2013, that will be about $480,000 in salary; in 2014, $570,000.
The minimum weekly salary for a player on the practice squad is $5,700. That is nearly $97,000 for a full, 17-week season
