Gay Declares for the Spring Nfl Draft

STARKVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Willie Gay Jr. has become the third Mississippi State football player to declare for the NFL draft. Gay missed 8 regular-season games this year due to academic suspension, was ejected from his first start of the season against Kentucky after two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and was involved in a practice incident that left starting quarterback Garrett Shrader injured and unable to play in the Bulldogs’ bowl game against Louisville. Gay was productive when he was on the field as a junior, racking up 28 tackles and forcing three turnovers in limited action. As a sophomore, Gay had 48 tackles, 5 sacks, and 2 interceptions as part of the nation’s top-ranked defense. Cornerback Cameron Dantzler and tailback Kylin Hill previously declared for the draft although Hill may change his mind and remain in school for another year. Junior linebacker Errol Thompson is also reportedly considering entering the draft.
