MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Quarterback Sam Bradford won't be the only Oklahoma underclassman who will be considering the NFL Draft in the next week.

Junior tight end Jermaine Gresham, junior right tackle Trent Williams and third-year sophomore defensive tackle Gerald McCoy all said after Thursday's 24-14 loss to Florida that they will mull over whether to leave early.

Gresham, who had eight catches for 62 yards and two touchdowns against the Gators, said he received a first-round projection on his NFL Draft evaluation, a scouting report that helps underclassmen gauge where they might be drafted.

“I'm going to sit down with my family and then decide,” Gresham said.

Williams, the only starting non-senior on this season's offensive line, said he received a second-round grade.

“I'm going to think about it,” Williams said.

McCoy wouldn't reveal his grade, but he is considered by many draft analysts to be one of the top defensive tackles eligible for the draft.

McCoy, however, wouldn't hint which way he was leaning.

Said McCoy, “You'll be hearing from me.”
