Florida CB Loucheiz Purifoy just told me he’ll enter the next NFL Draft

Purifoy’s talent is unquestionable, but his effort this season has been suspect. He’s one of the most athletic players on the Gators’ team this season, but had big mental breakdowns. His talent could make him a first-round pick, but after a sub-par season, he will likely fall into the second or third round. Purifoy had 22 tackles on the season with two sacks and two interceptions, one returned 42 yards for a touchdown.
