    Notre Dame defensive end Stephon Tuitt will enter the NFL draft, the junior told reported the move earlier Sunday.

    The 6-foot-6, 312-pound pass rusher received a second-round grade from the NFL advisory board, though he has been pegged by most analysts, including ESPN's Todd McShay, as a mid-first round pick.

    "I'm ready to take my game to the next level and do what what I love to do -- play football, compete and have fun," Tuitt said.
