Four SEC underclassmen decided to forgo their senior season and jump to the NFL early yesterday. Tennessee DE Darrington Sentimore, LSU OT Chris Faulk, Georgia DT Kwame Geathers and Bama OT DJ Fluker are all leaving school early.

Fluker and Faulk are understandable even though Faulk was injured in 2012. However, Geathers and Sentimore are more of a surprise, because both could have certainly used another year before heading to the next level. Geathers was talented but not even a starter, and Sentimore is one of the biggest surprises yet to announce his declaration.

Here’s updated list of 29 players, and 10 of them are from LSU:

  • Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
  • Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
  • Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas
  • Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
  • Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee
  • Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
  • Alvin Bailey, OL, Arkansas
  • Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn
  • Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
  • Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia
  • Matt Elam, S, Florida
  • Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
  • Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
  • Kevin Minter, LB, LSU
  • Eric Reid, S, LSU
  • Tharold Simon, CB, LSU
  • Spencer Ware, RB, LSU
  • Brad Wing, P, LSU
  • Jordan Reed, TE, Florida
  • Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
  • Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
  • Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
  • Jelani Jenkins, LB, Florida
  • Michael Ford, RB, LSU
  • Luke Joeckel, OL, Texas A&M
  • Darrington Sentimore, DT, Tennessee
