Florida Gators' Jalen Tabor declares for NFL draft



Florida Gators cornerback Jalen Tabor will forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL draft.

Tabor made his announcement Thursday morning via The Players' Tribune.

The news doesn't come as a surprise. The 6-foot, 201-pound Tabor could be a first-round pick this spring. 

Tabor was a two-time all-SEC player for UF. He had nine interceptions over his three years with the Gators and was a key part of one of the nation's best defenses. 

Three other UF players have also declared for the draft: cornerback Quincy Wilson, offensive tackle David Sharpe and linebacker Alex Anzalone.
