A person familiar with the decision says Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III has decided to enter the NFL draft.
ESPN, citing an anonymous family source, first reported that Griffin is going pro and is in the final stages of picking an agent.
Griffin is bypassing his senior season at Baylor, according to the person familiar with his decision who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the quarterback had not yet made an official announcement.
Griffin is projected to be one of the top picks in April.
Griffin and Stanford's Andrew Luck, the Heisman runner-up, are likely to be the first two quarterbacks selected.
