ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia outside linebacker Leonard Floyd is bypassing his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

The decision was announced by Georgia on Thursday and had been expected. The 6-foot-4, 231-pounder is widely projected as a first-round pick.

Floyd, a Butkus Award finalist, ranked second on the team with 74 tackles and led the Bulldogs with 4 ½ sacks. He shared the team lead with 10 ½ tackles for loss. For his career, Floyd had 17 sacks, the 11th highest in school history.

Floyd was a fourth-year junior in 2015. He spent the 2012 season at Hargrave Military Academy after graduating from Dodge County (Georgia) High School.
