Derek Barnett entering draft

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. College football standout Derek Barnett announced via Twitter Tuesday afternoon he is leaving the University of Tennessee.
In a single tweet he wrote, “It has been 3 great years. I’m very thankful for getting the opportunity to play at Tennessee! Thank you all for the many memories.”
Barnett will be enter the NFL Draft where many have him rated as a 1st round pick.
The 20-year-old formerly played at Brentwood Academy.
He also recently beat former player Reggie White’s longtime sack record.



Was expected. Great player and wish him luck. Honestly though I still think breaking Reggie's record is somewhat a slanted take on the record. Reggie White did it against teams back in the day when everyone ran options and stand pro pro set formations and there was never this many opportunities to sack a QB like there is in this pass heavy offense we see in this day and age. So I am so happy for the guy and he was a beast and proud of his performance I still have Reggie above him.I guess I am an oldie loyalist. Still Barnett was great and I think we he will make a great pass rushing specialist in the NFL if he gets on the right team
