Arguably the two best defensive line prospects in college football appear to be headed to the NFL. Nebraska’s Randy Gregory and USC’s Leonard Williams are reportedly finalizing plans to enter the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller.
May be a foregone conclusion, but I’m told Randy Gregory (Nebraska) and Leonard Williams (USC) are finalizing plans to enter ’15 draft

Williams is the best prospect in the upcoming draft, while Gregory is the No. 3 overall prospect, according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper. USC’s star defensive lineman was second on the team with 71 tackles and six sacks, and had 8.5 tackles for loss, which was third on the squad. Gregory was tied for fifth on the Huskers with 50 tackles, led the team with seven sacks and was second on the squad with 10 tackles for loss.
Both of these players will likely play their final collegiate game against each other, as Gregory’s Cornhuskers will meet Williams’ Trojans in the Holiday Bowl. The contest will take place on Dec. 27 in San Diego, and it is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 P.M. EST on ESPN.
