ATLANTA (AP) -Cornerback Asher Allen has joined the list of players leaving Georgia early to enter the NFL draft.
Junior quarterback Matthew Stafford and redshirt sophomore running back Knowshon Moreno announced last week they were entering the draft. Both are considered first-round picks.
Allen said Tuesday he finally made what he called a ``family decision'' to pass up his senior season at Georgia. Thursday is the last day underclassmen can declare for the draft.
The 5-foot-10, 198-pound Allen had no interceptions as a junior after having three in 2007. He finished fourth on the team with 53 tackles.
Allen wouldn't provide details of what he was told about his draft outlook by the NFL advisory committee, but he said he hopes to be selected in the first two rounds.
