CFB: UCLA DT Price to skip senior season for NFL draft

AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — UCLA defensive tackle Brian Price will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

The Pac-10’s defensive player of the year announced his expected decision Wednesday after consulting with his father, coach Rick Neuheisel and NFL experts who believe he could be a first-round pick.
Price was a disruptive force on UCLA opponents’ running and passing games, making 23› tackles for loss and seven sacks. He finished his career at UCLA with five tackles in the Bruins’ win over Temple in the EagleBank Bowl.
The two-time all-conference lineman was a third-team All-America selection by The Associated Press and a first- or second-team choice on several other All-America teams.
