Draft Notes: Thursday

The early entry deadline for the 2015 draft is tonight. Here’s a look at the latest underclassman who will be going pro..

  • Kentucky running back Braylon Heard announced his decision to declare for the draft, as Jonathan Lintner of the Courier Journal writes. Heard, 23, originally transferred in from Nebraska and started 10 games for UK, finishing with 366 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Heard rushed 77 times for 452 yards during the 2011 and 2012 seasons at Nebraska before joining the Wildcats.
  • UMass announced that junior tight end Jean Sifrin is going pro, as Daniel Malone of MLive.com writes. “As a program, we are very happy for Jean to have this chance to pursue his goals at the NFL level,” coach Mark Whipple said in a team release. “When we spoke, we told him that we supported his decision because of how it can benefit him and his family.” Sifrin doesn’t project as a top choice, but he could go higher than he would in most years thanks to a soft crop of tight ends.
