Five underclassmen UConn could have faced in 2015 eligible for NFL Draft

The NFL officially announced the 74 underclassmen who have declared for the NFL Draft and five of them would have squared off against UConn in the upcoming season.

Leading the list is Missouri defensive end Shane Ray, the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year, who had 14.5 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss and I've seen some talk that he could be a top 10 pick.

Central Florida will lose both defensive back Jacoby Glenn and receiver Breshad Perriman. Glenn had 34 tackles and seven interceptions a season ago while Perriman caught 50 passes for 1,044 yards and nine touchdowns, one coming in UCF's loss to UConn.

Tulane defensive back Lorenzo Doss, who had 48 tackles with one of his three interceptions coming against UConn, and Houston receiver Deontay Greenberry (72 catches during '14 season) are also turning pro.

UConn will play at Missouri on September 19, will host Houston and play at Central Florida and Tulane during the 2015 season.

Speaking of the draft, I noticed that Scott Wright of the site lists UConn's Byron Jones as the No. 4 cornerback in the draft while Geremy Davis checks in as the No. 26 receiver.
