Smith to Enter Draft

Whew.  Busy day.

Per the Gainesville Sun, Gators CB Ryan Smith will be leaving early to enter the NFL draft, following teammate Jarvis Moss:

Smith, who led Florida in interceptions this season, had told teammates he was ready to get out of school. Smith earned his degree at Utah last year which allowed him to transfer to Florida without sitting out a year.

Florida will have to replace three-fourths of its secondary if Reggie Nelson also declares early for the draft, which is expected.

Just a quick recap of where we stand with our possible early entry Juniors:

Leaving
DE Jarvis Moss
CB Ryan Smith

Staying
WR Andre Caldwell

Probably Staying
DE Derrick Harvey

Probably Leaving
LB Brandon Siler
S  Reggie Nelson

If anything is going to be done with the remaining Juniors, it will have to be announced by Monday.  We should hear more news by the end of the weekend regarding Harvey, Siler and Nelson's official announcements.
