Nickell Robey

USC junior cornerback Nickell Robey decides to forego his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

USC junior cornerback Nickell Robey is making himself available for the 2013 NFL draft.

The three-year starter closed out his junior season with 52 tackles. He tallied one interception in the Trojans win at Utah which he returned for a touchdown.

Robey, listed at 5-foot-8 and 165-pounds, received his NFL draft evaluation back projecting him to be selected no sooner than the fourth round.

Robey tweeted Sunday, "USC to the death of me. Thanx 4 everything. Love y'all. Fight On!"
