Rebel Oher to NFL Draft/Hogs Mcradden-Jones Also Make Jump

He's one of the Biggest College Football Recruits to Ever come out of the City of Memphis..

He's even had a Book written about his life story..

Now, Michael Oher, is about to write a New chapter, which includes the letters N-F-L.

Ole Miss Offensive Left Tackle Michael Oher says he's skipping his senior year to enter the NFL Draft.

The All-SEC player, who prepped at Briarcrest Christian School, started 34-straight for the Rebels in his 3-years in Oxford...clearing the way the last 2-years for 1,000 yard rusher BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Michael Lewis book, "the Blind Side" , was written about the 6'5", 325 pound Oher...a

best seller chronicling the rise of a homeless teenager to one of the most coveted prospects in the Nation.

The NFL Draft is in April.

Arkansas' One-Two punch in the Backfield is now running off to the NFL.

In an expected move, both Hogs Rushers Darren McFadden, a two time Heisman trophy runnerup, and speedy Felix Jones, who also doubles as one of the Nations Leading Kick Returners, both announced they're giving up their senior season for a shot at the Pros.

Jones had 2-thousand yard rushing season.

McFadden did it 3-years in a row.

  McFaddes says:

"When I was growing up it was a dream of mine to play for the Razorbacks, I've had a chance to live that out and now it's time to turn my attention to the NFL." 

Says Felix Jones,

"After taking time to consider all the factors, i'm confident that my decision to forgo my senior senior season was the right one."

McFadden is expected to be a top 10 pick.

Jones is expected to go later in the first round.
