The exodus of draft-eligible players continues unabated Sunday morning, with Rutgers the latest to feel the sting of an early leap to the NFL.

The Scarlet Knights announced in a press release Saturday that wide receiver Brandon Coleman has decided to forego his final season of eligibility and make himself available for the 2014 NFL draft.  Coleman, the school noted, is the seventh player since 2008 at Rutgers to leave school early and enter the NFL Draft.

Coleman will play in the Scarlet Knights’ New Era Pinstripe Bowl game against Notre Dame, which will serve as his finale at the collegiate level.

The 6-6 Coleman has started 26 of the 38 games in which he’s played during his time in Piscataway.  He has 92 career receptions for 1,743 yards, and his 19 receiving touchdowns are second on the school’s all-time list.

    Bad move! Coleman is coming off a surgery and he had a miserable season! He’s dropped some balls he would normall hold onto and he is a step or two slower probably due to the surgery. He’s a bright young man but he’s making a mistake leaving at this time.

    Isnt Gary Nova graduating? That should be more than enough motivation to stay.

    It would be asking too much for Nova to leave. Coach Flood creates the mess, now he must clean it up. Flood should also apologize to Chas Dodd for ruining his college career. He should have been playing him after Nova’s 3rd interception in the first half of LAST YEARS KENT STATE GAME!! And this is why the fans are fed up with Nova and Flood! And next season, Nova should be no better than second string! He will be booed out of Rutgers Stadium if he starts. High Point Solutions Stadium is what I meant.
