In announcement that comes as no surprise to anyone that was paying attention, Penn State’s Yetur Gross-Matos declared for the 2020 NFL Draft on Tuesday.

Gross-Matos, who was also named first-team All-Big Ten for the second year running on Tuesday, didn’t quite have the year some expected for the Nittany Lions but was impressive nonetheless.

He finished the season with eight sacks, matching his total from a year ago, though he had just 13.5 tackles for loss, far below his 20 from a season ago. Injuries and suspensions cost Gross-Matos a pair of games in the regular season and only at the end of the year did he really get back to what we saw last year on a consistent basis.

Latest mock drafts have him going anywhere between the middle of the first round to the early second round in April’s draft.
