NFL early entry deadline passes

The NFL Early Entry Deadline quietly passes yesterday, and the list of the 53 players on it has been officially released. And no, Jake Locker is not included, so those of you worried about a last-second change of heart can rest easy.
Here’s the list, which was posted on the NFL web site a little while ago.
Of the 53, just six are Pac-10 players — USC DE Everson Griffen, RB Joe McKnight and WR Damian Williams, Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski, Cal RB Jahvid Best and UCLA DT Brian Price. Stanford’s Toby Gerhart isn’t on the list, but he also has said he will pass up his final year of eligibility to instead turn pro (Gerhart isn’t on the list since he was regarded as a senior this season even though he had another year of eligibility due to an injury earlier in his career).
The Huskies are obviously the big winner in all of this, getting back a player who would have surely been a first-rounder. Oregon State was the other team to have a player spurn a possible high pick to return, DT Stephen Paea.
USC obviously lost the most, though now with all the other changes there wondering how they deal with the departure of those three players seems like the least of the intrigue about that program. Cal’s loss was expected and Shane Vereen has already proven an able replacement. Arizona played without Gronkowski all year, anyway, due to injury. Price is a big hit for UCLA, which already lost five other defensive starters, notably LB Reggie Carter and CB Alterraun Verner.
None of UW’s other three opponents next year — Nebraska, Syracuse, BYU — lost any players to early entry.
