Add two more underclassmen to the growing list of those who will declare for the NFL Draft.

Just a day after a crushing defeat to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl, a pair of top lineman prospects decided to leave early. Stanford offensive linemen Jonathan Martin (pictured, left) and David DeCastro announced their intentions to leave Palo Atlo and try their luck at the next level.

It’s time to take the next step. This one hurt, but I want a new challenge,” said Martin.

I have decided to enter the NFL draft,” DeCastro, a first-team All-American, said from his Twitter account, “Thanks to all who have supported me and Stanford football. I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else.”

Both lineman are considered to be first-round prospects.

    Awesome! Two more (much needed) talented linemen that the Dallas Cowboys will pass on!
