The full list of 103 players giving up college eligibility to enter the NFL Draft is out. Here are some of the most notable names on it.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
Even before Watson's title game heroics, the third-year junior had gone through "Senior Day" festivities in Death Valley a few months back. But after tossing for 420 yards and accounting for four touchdowns, Watson made it official: He's going pro, where he could be the No. 1 pick in this year's draft.

Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
The darling of NFL draftniks, Trubisky enters the draft after just one season as a starter in Chapel Hill. Still, he had a season to remember, tossing for over 3,700 yards and 30 touchdowns.
DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
The redshirt junior declared for the draft shortly after the Irish finished up a disappointing 2016 season at 4-8. He threw for 26 touchdowns and just under 3,000 yards this season.
Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami
Kaaya's numbers jumped dramatically in year one of the Mark Richt era, as the redshirt junior tossed 27 touchdowns, after throwing for just 16 a season ago.

Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech
Mahomes may have played in a pass-heavy system in Lubbock, but that didn't keep him from putting up monster numbers in 2016. His 5,052 yards passing led all of FBS football.
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
A nagging ankle injury kept Fournette from matching his All-American sophomore season in 2016, but that shouldn't stop him from being a very high draft pick. He ran for just 842 yards this year, but did set a school record with 284 yards against Ole Miss (the record was later broken by Derrius Guice against Texas A&M).
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
Like Fournette, injuries kept McCaffrey from topping his record-breaking 2015 campaign. Still, that didn't stop him for rushing for over 1,600 yards on his way to a spot to earning a spot on FOX Sports' second-team All-American list.
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
Cook rushed for at least 1,000 yards in all three of his seasons in Tallahassee, earning Orange Bowl MVP in his final game as a Seminole.

Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
For the third third time in his career Perine topped 1,000 yards this season, helping the Sooners to a second-straight Big 12 title.

Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma
On the field, Mixon was dynamite this year, rushing for over 1,500 yards on his way to All-Big 12 honors. But off the field is where the questions are with Mixon. He was charged with a misdemeanor after striking a female Oklahoma student in 2014.
Like Watson, Gallman unofficially made his decision weeks ago, and took part in Senior Day festivities. He will head to the pros as one of the most successful Clemson running backs ever, after back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons.
James Conner, RB, Pitt
The most inspirational story in this year's NFL Draft, Conner declared less than a year after being diagnosed with — and later beating — cancer. He finished this season with 16 rushing touchdowns and over 1,000 yards.

Curtis Samuel, RB/WR, Ohio State
The hero of the Michigan win, Samuel enters the draft as a dangerous threat in the run and pass game. He tallied eight touchdowns on the ground this year, and another seven receiving.
K.D. Cannon, WR, Baylor
It was a forgettable season at Baylor, but not for Cannon and his Big 12-best 87 catches.
ArDarius Stewart, WR, Alabama
Although Calvin Ridley got more hype, Stewart was actually the Tide's most consistent wide receiver in 2016, making 54 catches for a team-high 864 yards. Still his decision to declare was a bit surprising, and he isn't expected to be taken until late in the draft.
John Ross, WR, Washington
Ross was key to a resurgent Washington Huskies offense, tallying 81 catches with 17 touchdowns this season.
No one benefited from Sam Darnold's rise more than Smith-Schuster, who caught a career-high 10 touchdown passes in 2016. Behind Clemson's Mike Williams, he might be the best receiver prospect available.

Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
While Watson is the Clemson hero everyone is talking about, it was a couple incredible grabs by Williams which put Clemson in position to pull the upset against Alabama. After a 98 catch, 1,300 yard season, Williams is projected by most as the first wide receiver off hte board this winter.
Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson
Another Clemson junior who will go pro, Scott took a back seat to Williams this year, catching just 76 balls after tallying 93 a season ago.

Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama
Robinson won virtually every honor an offensive lineman can, earning All-American honors and the Outland Trophy given to the nation's top offensive lineman. There's a chance that he could be the first offensive tackle taken off the board in April's draft.

Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
One of the best "stories" in the draft, Ramczyk began his career at Division III Wisconsin-Stevens Point before transferring to Madison in the fall of 2015. He earned a starting spot at tackle, was named a first team All-American, and along with Robinson, could be the first offensive tackle taken off the board this season.

Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Like many stars in 2016, Garrett spent part of the season injured. But that didn't stop Garrett from accumulating 8.5 sacks and 15 tackles this year. There are already reports that the Browns could be targeting Garrett with the No. 1 overall draft choice.
Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State
Michigan State was disappointing and so was McDowell, who missed a handful of games with injury. Despite the injuries to his rib and ankle, McDowell still put up seven tackles for loss this season.

Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington
Qualls was a first team All-Pac 12 performer, after making 38 tackles and three sacks this season.

Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn
Lawson put an injury-plagued career behind him to have the most productive season of his career in 2016. The redshirt junior finished 13.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks this season.
Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
Thomas earned Sun Bowl MVP honors just a few weeks ago, capping a spectular third season in Palo Alto. He led the Cardinal in both sacks (seven) and tackles for loss (13.5) in 2016.
Garrett Sickels, DE, Penn State
Sickels was one of the breakout stars of Penn State's defense this year, finishing with a team-high 12.5 tackles for loss, to go along with six sacks.
The backbone of the Buckeyes defense the last two years, McMillan was named All-Big Ten in both 2015 and 2016.
Jalen Tabor, CB, Florida
A year after former teammate Vernon Hargreaves III went in the Top 15 overall, Tabor could do the same. He tallied four interceptions as a junior this past season.
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
Humphrey started every game at corner for Alabama the last two seasons, and finished this season with two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown in the Tide's season-opening victory over USC.
Mark J. RebilasMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
Adoree Jackson, CB, USC
The Thorpe Award winner leaves USC after snatching five interceptions in 2016, while adding four combined kickoff and punt returns for touchdowns this season.

Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
A three-year starter at Washington, Jones had three interceptions this season.

Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
While Conley didn't get the accolades that Buckeyes teammate Malik Hooker got in 2016, Conley still finished with four interceptions for one of the most ferocious pass defenses in college football.

Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
An under-recruited athlete out of high school, Hooker blossomed into a star in 2016, with seven interceptions, including three pick-6s.
Budda Baker, S, Washington
A ferocious hitter from the defensive backfield, Baker led the playoff-bound Huskies with 71 tackles and added two interceptions. He earned All-Pac 12 honors each of the last two seasons.
