UNDATED (AP) - Deshaun Watson is turning pro.

The Clemson quarterback is skipping his senior season and entering the NFL draft after going 32-3 as a Tigers starter and earning his degree. He ends his career on a high note, after leading Clemson to the national championship. He threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns in the 35-31 win over Alabama in the title game. He also ran for a score.

Jabrill Peppers has decided to enter the NFL draft and skip his senior season at Michigan. The Heisman Trophy finalist is projected to be a first-round pick in April.

Peppers usually played linebacker, one of 15 positions the team says he played last season on defense, offense and special teams. Peppers won the Hornung Award as the nation's most versatile college football player.

Florida State offensive tackle Rod Johnson will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. He's a two-time winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, which is given to the top offensive lineman in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Junior Ryan Ramczyk is entering the NFL draft after one season at Wisconsin, where he emerged from Division III transfer to All-American left tackle.
