Ryan Leaf led Washington State to its first Rose Bowl in 67 years. He won't try for a second one. The strong-armed quarterback said yesterday he will pass up his senior year to enter the NFL draft. "I've accomplished as much as I could in college football. " he said. "The next challenge is the NFL. " Leaf said he made up his mind well before his team lost to Michigan 21-16 Thursday in the Rose Bowl. He said he consulted with some top pro and college quarterbacks, and agent Leigh Steinberg came to his home in Great Falls, Mont.

Dwayne Jarrett, the leading receiver in Southern Cal's history, said yesterday that he planned to skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Jarrett, a 6-foot-5, 215-pounder from New Brunswick, N.J., ends his college career with 216 catches for 3,138 yards and a Pacific Ten record of 41 touchdowns in 38 games. The wide receiver capped his impressive three years at USC by catching 11 passes for 205 yards and two TDs in a 32-18 win over Michigan in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. Also announcing that they would skip their senior year of college to enter the NFL draft were Louisiana State quarterback JaMarcus Russell, Clemson cornerback C.J. Gaddis, and Pittsburgh cornerback Darrelle Revis.

In the NFL's offseason of uncertainty, the draft beginning Thursday is no different. Quarterback Cam Newton, the draft's biggest name and widely expected to be the first player taken Thursday night at Radio City Music Hall, has been the subject of intense debate: Do his talent and charisma outweigh concerns about his readiness and character? His standing atop most mock drafts fits in a year full of questions. At quarterback, where a top pick can reverse a team's fortunes or drive it deeper into the mire, analysts are predicting a rush of activity.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - When it came to being loyal to Penn State, few football players who have passed through Happy Valley showed that quality more than quarterback Christian Hackenberg. It was that loyalty that had Nittany Lions fans hoping he would return for his senior year. But in the end, after 38 consecutive starts, two offensive systems, countless hits, and opinions over whether he regressed after a great freshman year, Hackenberg did what most people expected. He said he will declare for the NFL draft, announcing the decision Saturday after the Lions' 24-17 loss to Georgia in the TaxSlayer Bowl, a game that Hackenberg left for good early in the second quarter with a sprained right (throwing)

THE EAGLES' search for a personnel executive to assist vice president Howie Roseman is suspended until after the NFL draft, a source close to the situation confirmed, because most candidates working in NFL personnel won't be allowed to leave their current teams during the draft process. The move - or unmove - was first reported by Geoff Mosher, of the Eagles Scouting Nest blog. This barrier is pretty much common sense, as well as something the team has dealt with before, over the years, which makes it a little puzzling as to why the Eagles undertook such a search in January.

THEY'RE HOPING for good weather next Thursday night in Bismarck, N.D., where as many as 15,000 people are expected to crowd into and around the Community Bowl stadium, set against a hillside, to watch a broadcast of the first round of the NFL draft, live from Chicago. Carson Wentz, the quarterback the Eagles are expected to select after trading up to the second overall spot, is a Bismarck native. "This is a big deal for the state of North Dakota, not just Bismarck," Century High football coach Ron Wingenbach said Thursday afternoon.

The straw that sent the camel of Jeff Lurie's patience to the ground last season fell during Chip Kelly's final press conference as Eagles coach, although no one knew at the time that his three-year shrugfest was over. Heading into the season-ending game against the Giants, carrying the burden of a 6-9 record, Kelly was asked if his dual roles as coach and personnel boss had been too much to handle. "I'm not the general manager, so I don't run our personnel department. I'm not in charge of scouting," Kelly said.

NFL NETWORK draft analyst Mike Mayock once again shares his views on top draft prospects with Daily News sports writer Paul Domowitch. He assesses the best player at each position, as well as a player who is rising up the draft board and a late-round sleeper to keep an eye on later in the draft. Mayock, 57, resides in Newtown Square and is a graduate of the Haverford School and Boston College. A former safety, he was a 10th-round pick of the Steelers in 1981 and played two seasons with the Giants (1982-83)

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Doug Pederson wasn't around the Eagles last season, but when the new coach was asked Wednesday about next month's NFL draft, the first position he mentioned was one many fans would target. "I think you still have to address offensive line. You can never have enough o-linemen," Pederson said at the NFC coaches' breakfast, on the final day of the NFL meetings. He went on to also mention safety and pass rush help. What sort of o-linemen does Pederson have in mind?

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Doug Pederson talked Monday about needing to do more to fix the Eagles' offensive line. Howie Roseman, perhaps more experienced in the keep-them-guessing ethos of the NFL draft, managed to turn a question about the running-back position into a hint that the Birds wouldn't necessarily spurn a chance to draft a runner - presumably, Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott - with their first pick, eighth overall. We're still five weeks away from the start of the draft, but as Roseman noted when he took a break from the NFL meetings at the Boca Raton Resort to speak to reporters, the selection process is about to take center stage.

MOBILE, Ala. - If talent trumped everything, and the Eagles had a chance to take Noah Spence 13th overall in this year's first round of the NFL draft, they'd probably do it. Spence is a 6-2 1/2, 254-pound edge rusher with rare strength, aggressiveness, flexibility and speed. He showed that for two seasons at Ohio State and then again this past season, after transferring to Eastern Kentucky, where he managed 11.5 sacks and was Football Championship Subdivision defensive player of the year.

After receiving a positive evaluation from an NFL advisory committee, Ohio State cornerback and former Eastern High School star Eli Apple announced Monday on Twitter that he would give up his final two years of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. Apple, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt sophomore, started 14 games as a freshman on Ohio State's 2014 national championship team.

Will Fuller called it a change of mind more than a change of heart. Notre Dame's leading receiver, who played his high school ball at Roman Catholic, announced Sunday via Twitter that he would forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft - this, nearly two months after Fuller, unprompted, said he would be back for another season in South Bend, Ind. Fuller tweeted, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Under that message was his announcement. "My heart truly wanted to return to Notre Dame," Fuller said.
