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.

The Cleveland Browns held the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft in April when the understanding was that the Los Angeles Rams traded for the No. 1 pick to draft Jared Goff. Instead of staying at No. 2 to select Carson Wentz, the Browns - who continue a search for a franchise quarterback - traded the pick to the Eagles. Wentz's first start with the Eagles on Sunday will come against the team that heavily scouted him and passed on the opportunity to pick him. "My focus is on playing them now," Wentz said.

THEY GOT the news in different ways. Zach Ertz got an 8 a.m. call from Sam Bradford. Rodney McLeod was watching the college football pregame show when the crawl across the bottom of the screen informed him that his team's starting quarterback had been traded. Bryan Braman saw it on Twitter. Wentz himself, memorably, told reporters Monday he'd been lying "in a cornfield . . . somewhere in Jersey," early Saturday morning, hunting geese, when Eagles coach Doug Pederson called to tell him Bradford had been traded to the Minnesota Vikings.

It's official. The 2017 NFL draft will be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. And if Mayor Kenney has his way, first-round picks will take a jog up the Art Museum steps à la Rocky as they are announced. Representatives from the NFL and the Eagles joined Kenney at City Hall on Thursday to announce the location for the 82nd draft, scheduled for April 27 to 29. The NFL will create an outdoor theater in front of the Art Museum for the event and transform the surrounding area into "Draft Town.

PERCEPTIONS can be whatever you want them to be, although in reality they mean little. Yet they can still shape opinions, in any number of directions. Temple's football team tied a program record by winning 10 games last season, its third with Matt Rhule as the coach. The Owls started 7-0 for the first time ever and were ranked as high as 20th, the first time they'd been in the poll since 1979. And they beat Penn State for the first time in 74 years. Senior linebacker Tyler Matakevich, who had received no other FBS scholarship offers, won a bunch of national awards.

DOUG PEDERSON remembers his first NFL preseason game, as a rookie quarterback. "It was late in the fourth quarter, and I knelt down three times. Three knees, in Miami," Pederson recalled recently. "Dan Marino, Scott Secules and Scott Mitchell were the three" quarterbacks ahead of Pederson on the depth chart that 1991 training camp, he said. Mitchell was the up-and-coming QB who got most of the work that night. Pederson, then an undrafted rookie from northeast Louisiana, wasn't facing great expectations.

This week, on the ground floor of Philadelphia's original Ritz-Carlton, where patricians once frequented that hotel's lavish Empire Dining Room and Ritz Bar, customers lined up at Wawa's deli counter. The transformation of the posh Broad and Walnut hotel, from high-society hangout to Hoagiefest's home, suggests just how much Center City and its dining options have changed. Wawa's occupancy of what was a grand hotel lobby also has helped to further obscure the significant sports history that took place in that building, 20 or so floors above the provolone and pickles.

Bob Brady says the 2017 NFL draft will be held in Philadelphia. The city says: Not so fast. The U.S. representative said in an interview Thursday that the draft, held in Chicago the last two years, would take place in Philadelphia in April. Although the city did not confirm that a deal had been made, Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, said that Mayor Kenney called him Thursday to tell him that the city had agreed to host the draft and to commit $5 million to pull off the three-day event.

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...
