Calvin Pryor is National Football League bound.

The Port St. Joe native and recent University of Louisville standout announced via Instagram that he was forgoing his senior year of college eligibility in order to enter the NFL draft.

“It is the best decision for me and my family,” Pryor wrote, saying he came to the decision after consulting coaches and his family.

Thanking fans for the “support and love” they had shown him, Pryor called his three years at Louisville “an amazing experience.”

“I’m going to miss playing here,” he continued, “but it is time to move on in the world.”

And according to at least one early prognostication Pryor could be a first-round selection.

Chris Burke at the Sports Illustrated website provided his latest Mock Draft – it will be among many Burke will submit as the draft process moves forward – last week.
