Texas Tech junior TE Jace Amaro declared for the NFL Draft.

This could be considered the first flip in terms of decisions, but Amaro is a super talented receiving target who fits exactly what the NFL wants. He finished his final game with eight catches for 112 yards against Arizona State. Our own Josh Norris has ranked Jace Amaro as the top tight end in the country since October.

Oregon State junior WR Brandin Cooks will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

No surprise here, as Cooks is highly rated and coming off a season in which he led the FBS in receiving yards (1,730 yards on 128 catches). Cooks (5-foot-10, 186 pounds) is a scary weapon in the open field when you get the ball in his hands. He's drawn comparisons to Steve Smith, though Rotoworld's Josh Norris, who ranks Cooks as the No. 3 WR prospect in the class, sees Victor Cruz when he watches Oregon State tape. Cooks, the 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's most outstanding wide receiver, could slot into the latter portion of the first round.

Love Cooks game. Kid plays bigger than his size. Defenses knew he was their only threat at WR and he still put up those #s. Always a threat to score.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports Louisville junior QB Teddy Bridgewater will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

This is as close to official as possible. The announcement is not a surprise, but there was a bit of buzz that Bridgewater was considering returning for one more season. Our own Josh Norris ranks Bridgewater as the No. 1 prospect in the draft because he projects the passer as a quality starter at the next level. Expect his game to be critiqued throughout the process, however.

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore WR Mike Evans will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
Evans is a tall and long receiver with good long speed and high production after the catch. There will be some debate between his projection as a receiver or tight end, but we think that is pointless. He will not line up inline, so the two are practically the same. He dominates at the catch point and works back towards his quarterback.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson will forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.
Again, it is not a surprise, since every eligible receiver has decided to enter the draft rather than return to school. Robinson really turned it on this year while catching passes from Christian Hackenberg, displaying good body control and foot speed to separate. he might not be a first-round pick, but Robinson will likely be selected in the top-50.

The CFT people think he's got a good bet of being picked high. Led LSU in TFLs and expect him to do well in workouts.

http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/01/02/lsu-loses-underclassman-dt-johnson-to-nfl-draft-are-more-on-the-way/

This season Johnson was LSU's leader in tackles for a loss with nine. Heading in to the NFL Draft Johnson is considered one of the top defensive tackles available in the NFL Draft. He is expected to participate and perform well in the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine, an event that should solidify a decent draft expectation for him later in the spring.

So I'd rule him out of your wish list unless we go DT relatively early to mid round.

Florida junior CB Marcus Roberson will declare for the NFL, according to beat writer Pat Dooley.

The official announcement is expected to come later today. It is an expected move for a talented defensive back, as Roberson missed multiple game due to a suspension and injuries. He is more technically sound than teammate Loucheiz Purifoy at this point in their careers.

South Carolina junior WR Bruce Ellington will forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.

Ellington posted a huge game in the school's bowl win over Wisconsin, hauling in six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns. If he was 50-50 on a decision prior to the game, that performance certainly did not hurt. Ellington, who also played basketball at South Carolina, appears to be in the third- to fourth-round range rather than a top-64 pick.

edit: I think he is the starting point guard on the basketball team.
How does or will this decision effect his status on the basketball team?

Oregon redshirt junior CB Terrance Mitchell "is making final preparations to enter the NFL Draft," according to Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin.

Mitchell later confirmed reports that he is entering May's draft. Ducks corner Ifo Ekpre-Olomu gets all the attention, but there is some buzz that Mitchell could be the better player. This might turn into a situation similar to Johnthan Banks/Darius Slay or Blidi Wreh-Wilson/Dwayne Gratz from last season.
