Offensive lineman Dan Feeney will bypass draft, return to Hoosiers
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Offensive lineman Dan Feeney said Monday he will skip the NFL draft and return to Indiana next season.
The 6-foot-4, 310-pound guard played 2,719 snaps in 2015 without allowing a sack and has allowed one sack in 37 starts. He was rewarded by earning first-team All-Big Ten and a third-team All-American selection last season.
Two other Indiana players — running back Jordan Howard and defensive lineman Darius Latham — had announced they will enter the draft early.
The announcement comes two days after Indiana hired Tom Allen as its new defensive coordinator. Allen held the same position at South Florida last season and has 24 years of coaching experience.
He replaces Brian Knorr, whom coach Kevin Wilson said will not return in 2016.
