SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah defensive end Paul Kruger and defensive back Sean Smith are entering the NFL draft.
Both were first-team all-Mountain West picks in 2008.
Kruger, a sophomore, had a team-high 7.5 sacks and added 61 tackles for the Utes (13-0), who finished the season No. 2 in The Associated Press poll.
In a statement issued through the university on Monday, the 6-foot-5, 265-pound Kruger says the decision to forgo his final two years of college eligibility is one of the hardest he's had to make.
Smith, a 6-3, 214-pound junior, led the Utes with five interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He also broke up a team-high nine passes.
They are in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., training for the draft.
