Despite some rumors floating around the interwebz on Thursday, Alabama standout defensive tackle Jarran Reed and All-SEC linebacker Reggie Ragland will not forgo their final season of eligibility to enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

As previously reported, the Crimson Tide's Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon, and Landon Collins will be turning pro this summer.

Kentucky running back Braylon Heard was the last to make his announcement yesterday. Clearly, he and a few others have not been paying attention to the position as it pertains to the draft. Thirteen underclassmen have declared. Many of them will go undrafted.

Melvin Gordon Wisconsin - Possible first round
Todd Gurley Georgia - Possible first round depending on his health
Duke Johnson Miami - Second day (rounds 2-3)
Tevin Coleman Indiana - Second day (rounds 2-3)
T.J. Yeldon Alabama - Second day (rounds 2-3)
Mike Davis South Carolina - Rounds 3-4
Jay Ajayi Boise State - Rounds 3-4
Javorius Buck Allen Southern Cal - Middle to late rounds
Josh Robinson Mississippi State - Middle to late rounds
Matt Jones Florida - Late if at all
Dee Hart Colorado State - Late if at all
Braylon Heard Kentucky - Not drafted
Trey Williams Texas A&M - Not drafted

Don't forget that seniors Ameer Abdullah (Nebraska), Jeremy Langford (Michigan State), and Cameron Artis-Payne (Auburn) are also in this draft.
