ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia linebacker Rennie Curran said Sunday he'll enter the NFL draft, the second member of the Bulldogs' defense to leave school a year early.

The 5-foot-11, 225-pound Curran led the Southeastern Conference with 130 tackles this past season and was named to The Associated Press All-SEC team. He finished his three-year career with 298 tackles.

Curran follows safety Reshad Jones, who announced last week that he's giving up his final year to enter the draft.

Curran appeared in 37 games for the Bulldogs, including 30 starts. He's projected as a mid-round draft pick, possibly going as high as late in the second.
