Here are the 26 underclassmen who have declared themselves eligible for the April 25-26 draft, according to Scout.com draft expert Chris Steuber. More names, including both quarterbacks playing in tonight's national championship game — Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Florida's Tim Tebow — could join this list before the Jan. 15 deadline.
Three players — Florida State defensive end Everette Brown (No. 7), Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno (No. 9) and Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis (No. 13) — could wind up being available when the Packers are on the clock with their No. 9 pick.
Many Packers fans live in Wisconsin, so it's worth noting that power running back P.J. Hill declared for the draft on Thursday. Steuber calls Hill a mid-round draft pick who would be a situational back in the NFL.
Here's the list:
Ricky Jean-Francois, LSU., junior
Sen'Derrick Marks, Auburn, junior
D.J. Moore, Vanderbilt, junior
Captain Munnerlyn, South Carolina, junior
Jerraud Powers, Auburn, junior
James Williams, Southern Connecticut, junior
Matthew Stafford, Georgia, junior
Shonn Greene, Iowa, junior
P.J. Hill, Wisconsin, junior
Knowshon Moreno, Georgia, sophomore
Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland, junior
