2014 NFL Draft: Fresno State WR Davante Adams declares for draft

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Star wide receiver Davante Adams will give up his final two years of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.

UPDATE: Davante Adams received a third-round grade (somewhat low) and he is declaring for the NFL Draft.

The talent departing Fresno State is increasing at an alarming rate, as the latest who could be on his way out is star wide receiver Davante Adams who is reportedly leaning toward leaving, according to Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports. Adams was a first-team All-Mountain West and was named to various All-American teams, typically second-team or below.

Adams had a great 2013 where he led the nation in receptions (131) and receiving touchdowns (24) plus he was second in receiving yards (1,719). Those stats were put up by playing in one less game since the Colorado game was canceled due to weather.

Adams reportedly told school officials that he is on his way out despite that he has not heard back from the NFL about his draft grade. In SB Nation's big board has the redshirt sophomore is rated as the 13th rated wide receiver, CBS Sports draft anslyst Rob Rang has a second-round grade on Adams and in a composite of multiple top-200 boards Adams comes in as the No. 43rd player.

There are probably a few things that Adams could still improve on for next year, but not having Derek Carr throwing him the ball could be a big reason, and a good one, for leaving two years of eligibility on the table.
