USC defensive end Leonard Williams, who is projected to be a top-five pick, will enter the NFL draft.
In an unsurprising move, USC defensive end Leonard Williams will enter the 2015 NFL Draft and skip his senior year at USC.
Williams was a first-team All-American in 2013, and he continued to be a fearsome behemoth in his junior season with the Trojans.
He registered seven sacks in the 2014 season, and he had six in 2013 while having eight in 2012. Although the USC defense had its struggles, Williams was a primary reason that they were able to muster any sort of pass rush in their games.
He is projected to be a top-five pick as a result, and he is even being considered a sleeper to be the first pick overall.
