NORMAN — All signs point to safety Tony Jefferson and receiver Kenny Stills skipping their senior seasons at Oklahoma and entering the 2013 NFL Draft.
ESPN.com reported Sunday, citing a source, that both juniors had already decided on entering the draft.
Sources close to the OU program indicated Sunday that Jefferson and Stills were leaning toward forgoing their final seasons of college eligibility, but that no official decision had been made.
One NFL scout told The Oklahoman before the Cotton Bowl that neither Jefferson nor Stills was ready for the NFL, and that both were likely to be fourth- or fifth-round selections.
ESPN ranks Jefferson (5-feet-11, 212 pounds) as the fifth-best safety — and 82nd-ranked overall prospect — available in the 2013 draft class; Stills (6-1, 190) is the 14th-ranked receiver and 73rd overall player, according to the same rankings.
Stills was Oklahoma's leading receiver as a junior, catching 82 passes for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns.
