Say It Ain't So Stanley!

Auburn defensive end Stanley McClover surprised everyone with his announcement Thursday that he'll make himself available for the NFL draft in April.

What a huge mistake McClover is making. He's projected to be a late round draft choice at best with many believing he'll have to sign as a free agent.

He becomes the first Tiger underclassman to leave early for the NFL draft since tight-end Robert Johnson in 2002. Ironically, Johnson wasn't drafted.

It's always tough to watch a great kid make a huge mistake. I'm sure the coaches tried to talk him out of his decision. He will forever be part of Auburn lore after the dominating performance he put on against Alabama this year. McClover was as colorful off the field as he was on. He will be missed by many. Let's hope it works out for the best.
