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.

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.

TWO QUARTERBACKS are throwing at the Eagles' rookie camp this weekend. One of them has been nationally famous since leading his college team to an undefeated season in 2012. The other is Carson Wentz. It's a funny world. Dozens of reporters lined one wall of the indoor facility Friday at NovaCare as Wentz took the field for the first time as an Eagle. Minutes earlier, he'd appeared at a news conference where Wentz, the North Dakota State QB the Eagles traded up to draft second overall, told reporters he figures he'll have a good relationship with returning starter Sam Bradford, even though they have yet to meet.

LAST THURSDAY the NFL inadvertently and unintentionally made a case for paying college players. Minutes before he was expected to go within the top three or four picks in the NFL draft, Laremy Tunsil found out both his Twitter and Instagram accounts had been hacked, sharing with any potential future employer a two-year-old video of him smoking out of a gas mask bong and messages suggesting he was paid under the table while playing for Ole Miss. Tunsil tumbled to the Dolphins as the 13th pick overall - the Eagles' original draft position - costing the offensive tackle by, even modest estimates, more than $8 million in lost wages.

FOR 15 DAYS in July 2014, Wendell Smallwood's football career was very much in doubt. Smallwood was arrested at West Virginia University, where he was training for his sophomore season at running back, and was extradited back home to Wilmington, Del. He was charged with trying to get a witness in a murder case to recant her statement implicating Smallwood's friend, a man named Zakee Lloyd, who was accused of killing 51-year-old Manuel Oliveras in...

WELL, IT IS DONE! The beloved Eagles picked Carson Wentz from North Dakota State with the second selection in the NFL draft to be their quarterback of the future. They gave up almost a king's ransom in draft choices to get the second pick. Was it worth it? I'm afraid the answer is no. I am afraid, because I hope with all my heart that Wentz turns out to be, if not a Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, at least a Drew Brees or Philip Rivers. I hope I am wrong because if the actuarial tables are right, Wentz could be the Eagles' quarterback for the rest of my lifetime, and, Carson, if you see this, winning the Super Bowl is on my bucket list.

Temple defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis concedes he is anxious for the final two days of the NFL draft - but not enough to look at mock draft selections. After Thursday's first round, the next two rounds will be on Friday, and rounds four through seven are to be on Saturday. Ioannidis is among a number of Temple players who could be drafted. The list includes highly decorated linebacker Tyler Matakevich, cornerback Tavon Young, wide receiver Robby Anderson and center Kyle Friend.

TYLER MATAKEVICH sees the irony. That doesn't mean he has to understand it, much less accept it. He's been here before. He just figured that after four years of proving a lot of people wrong, he might be past that. Instead, the most honored player in Temple football history now has to prove himself all over again. "It's funny, because I get asked a lot about this," said the 6-foot, 240-pound linebacker, who won the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards as the best defensive player in the country last season.

JUST THREE years ago, Philadelphia sports had as distinct a New England taste as a hot bowl of chowder. The hockey coach was from Massachusetts, the basketball coach was from Maine, and the new, exciting football coach with the new, exciting football scheme was a New Hampshire native. Two key pieces of the Sixers, Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, hailed from the Bay State. More than half of Chip Kelly's staff came from his New England connections. Kelly's gone, Peter Laviolette is in Nashville.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock gave his views on the top Philadelphia-area players in Thursday's draft: Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame, Roman Catholic High School: Fuller is a guy that is a legit 4.3 [seconds in the 40-yard dash]. There aren't many of those walking the Earth. I think he'll go in the first round. If he slides into 2, he'll go quickly. His hands aren't as natural as you'd like, but, boy, can he track the deep ball. Jihad Ward, DE, Illinois, Bok High School: Jihad Ward has upside written all over him. Plus, he's a great story.

CHICAGO - Last week, with eight days remaining in what Carson Wentz likes to call "the longest job interview I've ever had, and probably that most people ever had," a welcome bit of clarity arrived. Wentz was working out in Fargo, N.D., when he got a text from agent Ryan Tollner: The Eagles had just traded with the Browns, moving into the second position in Thursday's first round of the NFL draft in order to grab a quarterback, and with the Los Angeles Rams apparently settled on Cal's Jared Goff in the No. 1 spot, that quarterback would be Wentz.
