Report: Virginia Tech RB Ryan Williams Will Enter NFL Draft

I have confirmed with a source Ryan Williams will enter NFL Draft. Virginia Tech has scheduled a teleconference for 3 p.m. today.less than a minute ago via web

 

UPDATE: Mark Giannotto reports the press conference, which is in 20 minutes, will be about Darren Evans' future with the Hokies.

And boom goes the dynamite.

Kudos to Josh for breaking this story. No word on if Darren Evans' intentions will also be announced at the same teleconference, but my guess is they won't. At last report, Evans is still weighing his options prior to the Jan. 15 early entry deadline.

Williams said after the Orange Bowl the NFL Draft advisory committee told him he would probably go late in the first round or in the second round. While Williams could probably improve his draft stock by coming back, there are a lot of other factors to consider, including how deep next year's running back class will be and the status of the NFL's CBA.

Williams is currently the 4th-highest ranked running back on Mocking the Draft's big board and one of the players ahead of him, LaMichael James, has already announced he will return to Oregon next season.
