Florida cornerback Teez Tabor announced Thursday that he will be forgoing his senior season to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. Per ESPN:
Tabor tallied four interceptions in 2016, returning one for a touchdown against Missouri. He also contributed 33 tackles and a sack for the Gators (9-4), who already have lost cornerback Quincy Wilson, offensive tackle David Sharpe and linebacker Alex Anzalone to the pros. Defensive tackle Caleb Brantley is also expected to leave school early.
At 6 feet, 201 pounds, Tabor is listed as the No. 2 cornerback prospect by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and the No. 16 overall prospect by ESPN's Todd McShay.
"It's an exciting time for me," Tabor wrote. "I've decided to do what's best for me and my family by continuing to pursue my dreams."
