ESPN.com, citing unidentified sources, reported that Graylon McFadden provided the relevant paperwork early this week.
``I hate to be saying anything because all these false stories and everything are floating around,'' Graylon McFadden told The Associated Press on Saturday. ``But no I didn't - and that's all I've got to say.''
Darren McFadden, a junior tailback, was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2006 and 2007. His entry into the NFL draft would come as no surprise. He's second on the Southeastern Conference's single-season and career rushing lists after running for 1,830 yards this past season and 4,590 during his three-year career.
The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft is next Tuesday. Felix Jones, Arkansas' other talented junior tailback, has said he'll announce his intentions Monday.
