Harvey Declares

This won't be the flood of last season, but one non-senior is out of Gainesville. From ESPN...

Florida defensive end Derrick Harvey has informed the Gators that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
"I was told I am projected as a first-round pick," Harvey said. "It's time for a change. I just told my coaches."

Scouts Inc. has Harvey listed as the second best DE, so I hope he doesn't meet the same fate as Anthony Roberson or Matt Walsh. In the article, Harvey's mother says money is not an issue and Harvey felt he was ready to leave after last season. I don't know if he is ready (he only had 6.5 sacks, all before November), but he is a freakish athlete who obviously realizes he has the potential to be an NFL end.
