Report: Bryce Brown looking to enter NFL Draft

The saga that has been Bryce Brown's college football career is reportedly moving in a whole new direction. ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that Brown is strongly considering not returning to school next year and instead will enter the NFL Draft. A decision that no doubt raises some eyebrows.

Brown's college career has been an interesting one, but also one that hasn't seen much time on an actual football field. As a high school senior in Kansas, Brown was widely considered to be the second best running back prospect in his class, behind only Trent Richardson. While we all know how Richardson's career turned out at Alabama, Brown's has gone the opposite direction.

Brown originally signed with Tennessee in 2009 and after gaining 460 yards on 101 carries as a freshman, Brown transferred to Kansas State where he joined his brother, Arthur Brown. Brown sat out the 2010 season and came into 2011 expected to take over the starting role in the Wildcats backfield. Instead Brown lost the starting job to John Hubert and only carried the ball 3 times for 16 yards before leaving the school midseason.

Now it seems he's ready to give the NFL a try rather than returning to Kansas State or transferring once again. Which, to be quite honest, doesn't seem like the wisest of decisions if that's the one Brown does indeed make. While Brown may have been a top prospect coming out of high school, there probably aren't a whole lot of NFL teams who will be knocking themselves over for a chance to draft a kid with 104 career carries in the last three years.

In order to get drafted Brown would likely have to blow scouts away at the combine. He's much more likely to go undrafted and sign as a free agent somewhere and hope to make a roster or a practice squad.

Shoulda' gone to Alabama.  He'd have rushed for 3,000 yards.  Do you have any idea what RBs can do behind a line that is incapable of being called for holding?  Oh, wait, we do - Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson have shown you.

Report: Bryce Brown looking to enter NFL Draft

you forget his oral commitment to play with his brother in miami with randy shannon...but renegged on that! this kid is super talented, but his uncle or whomever(i forget the family advisor) who tried to help this kid steered him down the wrong path. they were the ones who started podcasting and tracking h.s. athletes leading up to intent day; i.e. making a spectacle and parade of the event even more so than it is. his head got too big, and he listened to wrong side of the sidelines. he is SUPERTALENTED--NEEDS TO hire a super agent like rosenhaus and show people he can work and pass interviews, his story can be like the gemini...he lost internal control and now wants new start, very low mileage for a starter! intriguing!
