    [​IMG]We haven't had any draft-eligible players across the Big 12 explicitly state their intentions to enter the NFL draft at the end of the season. Only a couple have committed to returning to school in 2011.

    Most have given non-committal statements and emphasized a focus on the bowl game, though plenty of players across the league have turned in their game film to the NFL draft's advisory committee, who will then give the players an idea of where they would land in the draft next April. Players can do so by selecting and submitting the game film from their three best games.

    ESPN's Mel Kiper named his top five draft-eligible non-seniors at each position, and using it as a guide (plus a couple additions) here are the players across the Big 12 who will probably have a decision to make at the end of the season.

    Colorado
    • Ryan Miller, OG (committed to 2011 at CU)
    Iowa State
    • Kelechi Osemele, OT
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    • Jared Crick, DT
    • Alfonzo Dennard, CB
    • Lavonte David, LB
    Oklahoma
    Oklahoma State
    Texas
    • Cody Johnson, RB (projected as NFL fullback)
    • Aaron Williams, CB
    Texas A&M
    With a tip of the hat to The Clash: Should they stay or should they go?
