Junior wide receiver Malcolm Kelly announced on Thursday that he is foregoing his senior season to enter the National Football League Draft.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops confirmed and supported Kelly's decision.

Kelly ranks No. 2 on the career touchdown receptions chart with 21 behind Mark Clayton's 30.

He was second on the team in 2007 with 49 catches, 821 yards and nine touchdowns. He led the regular receivers with 16.8 yards per catch.

Kelly was even more productive as a sophomore as he hauled in 62 catches for 992 yards and 10 TDs.

Although his report from scouts projected Kelly to go in the second round, several other draft projections have him landing as a first-round pick.

One such projection has Kelly going No. 17 to the Minnesota Vikings, which would pair him with former Oklahoma teammate Adrian Peterson.
