Hinds Community College defensive lineman Risean Broussard made himself available for the NFL Draft.
Broussard turned pro because he wouldn't have been eligible to play college football at Division I or Division I-AA. His eligibity status began in 2010. He was out of football a few years and played for the Eagles last year.
"I really got full of myself and didn't think I had to go to class or study or anything like that," Broussard told JCFootball.com.
The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Broussard is considered a longshot to get drafted, but his athleticism may be too good to pass up.
