Wave of Power 5 opt-outs continues as trio of notable players declare for NFL Draft
There were a few more big opt-outs across college football Sunday as some players don’t want to risk getting hurt at the end of the season.
Texas Longhorns left tackle Samuel Cosmi was one of the players to officially opt-out as he’s one of the top prospects going into the 2021 NFL Draft:

Cosmi started 34 consecutive games for the Longhorns for his career before opting out officially today. ESPN’s Mel Kiper has him listed as the 10th best player in the NFL Draft for next year.
Wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. of LSU also opted out:

He finishes his 2020 season with 48 receptions for 731 yards and 1o touchdowns. He’ll no doubt be one of the top wide receivers taken early in the NFL Draft.
Finally, Asante Samuel Jr. of Florida State announced his opt-out as well:

The defensive back finishes his 2020 season with 30 tackles (22 solo) with three interceptions, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries.
These will likely not be the last of the opt-outs as a lot of teams will have their seasons finished over the next couple of weeks. For any team no longer in contention, it will be easy for certain star players to forego the remaining games and begin preparations for the draft.
