Underclassmen Declare Thread
Add names here
Saw today that Eddie Lacy and DJ Fluker will declare after the BCS Game
They get added to
Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina
Knile Davis RB Arkansas
Tyrann Mathieu CB/S LSU
Keenan Allen WR Cal
Sheldon Richardson DT Missouri
Da'Rick Rogers WR Tennessee/ Tenn Tech
Jonathan Hankins DT Ohio State
Trabis Ward RB Tenn Tech
Rumors also claiming Giovani Bernard UNC RB will as well
Keenan allen/Jonathan Hankins and Knile davis are all my favorites. If we can get our hands on one of these guys I would be extremely happy.
Tyrann Mathieu in the late 6th-UDFA would also make me happy, I know i am taking a big flyer on him but at best a special teams guy, gunner, punt returner or nickle guy for depth; too much talent just too much.
Could u imagine a Eddie Lacy/ David Wilson DUO backfield? That'd be TIKI/JACOBS Esque... I would love David Wilson's chances to be a big time player if he had a guy like Eddie Lacy to take some of the load off his shoulders..

Alvin Bailey G Arkansas, Kenny Stills WR Oklahoma, Tony Jefferson S Oklahoma, Tyler Bray QB Tennesee, Deandre Coleman DE/DT California, Akeem Spence DT Illinois, are all coming out as well...
I have tossed around the Lacy pick myself and really like the idea. Another guy later in draft is leveon bell Michigan st.
The main reason i didnt' like the Wilson pick.. I knew we'd end up liking the idea of a Bell or Lacy guy being drafted, which u shoulden't be thinking about when u just drafted a 1st rd RB the yr before...

I think people would be surprised that Wilson can carry the load but another back allows flexibility. Throughout the league teams have two backs. I'll be the first to say I wanted Glenn but Wilson will be a breakout back. Having a bigger back Ala lacy/bell makes too much sense and adds to offense.
Some other guys that declared that aren't on here yet..
Alec Ogletree ILB Georgia
Matt Elam S Florida
Deandre Hopkins WR Clemson
Stephon Jefferson RB Nevada
Corey Lemonier LB/DE Auburn
Logan Ryan CB Rutgers
Robert Woods WR USC
Trey Millard FB Oklahoma
